OUR PARTNER CHARITIES
Most young people take moving into their 20's and 30's for granted, however every year in the UK more than 12,500 young adults are told they have cancer. Trekstock feel more strongly than ever that this group of young adults need and deserve an organisation dedicated to providing information and support programmes to help them deal with the emotional and physical impact of cancer and to help get them moving again once treatment ends. Trekstock delivers practical and social support programmes tailored to the needs of young adults, to give them a better chance of living well through and beyond cancer.

CoppaFeel! exists to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs isn’t only fun, it could save their life. They are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies. They speak to young people in their natural habitat; from festivals to shower cubicles, university campuses to Instagram. They want everyone to have the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer and strive to live in a world where all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible, at which treatments are more effective and survival rates are higher.

Wigs For Heroes was founded by Kaz Foncette (pictured centre, above) in 2017 after her own cancer diagnosis at the age of 31. Their passion is to help as many women as possible by easing and aiding some of the physical changes and side effects of cancer treatment.
They gift pamper boxes to women across the UK, filled with donated beauty products and feel good items, share beauty tips and tutorials on their social platforms and provide a Facebook community support group for any woman affected by cancer.
