Watch out for our ‘challenge 10’ activity…something for everyone to do and take part in!

All funds raised from our celebrations will go towards our current project of converting a balcony into a treatment space and refurbishing the existing treatment areas at the LRI chemotherapy suite. This will enable 40 more patients to be treated per week and reduce the waiting time for treatment all at a cost of £660,000 so every penny counts more than ever.

More information on each event will be published nearer the date, however please get in touch with us if you would like any more information on how you can help us celebrate our ten years of helping make the patients at LRI chemotherapy suite more comfortable during their treatment: gemscharity@gmail.com or phone (0116) 279 3814
