Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens is a campaign to raise money for research into cancers affecting children, teens and young adults. With your help we will find cures and kinder treatments for young people facing cancer.

I met the beautiful, cheeky, creative and confident Sumiya who was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. We spent a wonderful afternoon doing what we love most – fashion design! Find out more about what Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens does, and how you can help, on their website.

Refuge helps thousands of women and children access safety across the country every day with a range of services from emergency accommodation to legal advocates.
