Be a hero for children with cancer. Kids can't fight cancer alone.

Little Heroes has been set up by parents of children with cancer with a very simple aim, to offer direct support to children and their families suffering from childhood cancer. 

We give toys to children on treatment every month, but not just the kids on treatment but also their siblings, who often suffer at the same time.

Our aim is to eventually provide respite care to families by providing special centres for children who have no immune system.


"No one can make a greater mistake than in doing nothing because they think they can do only a little"

What we are looking for is people who care and want to help, and there are so many ways in which you could get involved, or make a financial contribution.

Payroll or regular giving
Corporate/community partnership
Sponsorship of events
Provide a legacy
Volunteer your skills
Volunteer your time help us

Whatever you can do to help, we are sure you will find it rewarding and enjoyable.

Every single contribution makes a difference.  Please make a difference for children and their families living with cancer, and help them to make it through their journey.  You will be a Hero for children with cancer.

The sad facts......

Childhood cancer affects every family, emotionally and financially, that it touches.

91% have to change their working patterns following diagnosis, in order to care for their child, and some have to give up work altogether.

Many parents & families spend 24 hours per day in hospital, for weeks at a time.

Some parents of children with cancer lose their homes and their livelihoods.

Whenever Cancer attacks it is a devastating blow for the family - but never more so than when the victim is a child.

Help us to help them.  Don't wait until it is too late.

Thank you for your support.
