Lions Donate £550 to ‘Kids Cancer Charity’

Weymouth & Portland Lions are delighted to support this appeal by the charity to support a caravan holiday for a Weymouth family who have a child who has been diagnosed with cancer and has been undergoing cancer treatment.

The charity are currently caring for 7 children and their families from Dorset The idea is to take the whole family away for a Compassionate Care break to sometimes relieve the stress of having to attend hospital(s) for continuous treatment.The breaks often unite the whole family and their feeling of belonging by giving then time away as a family in beautiful surroundings.

The charity also puts the family in touch with the local paediatric oncology hospital should they need one in an emergency.
