Caring Cancer Trust’s non-animal tested research programme and associated Way2Go and Create2Go healing holidays our wholly managed and run by dedicated unpaid volunteers. We employ no paid staff, no fundraisers on salary or commission, no call centres or ‘chuggers’ and send no unsolicited mail.

Your donations go directly to help children suffering from Cancer and their caring families, and to fund groundbreaking Cancer research which uses no live animals.


If you are interested in fundraising for Caring Cancer Trust’s Research or Healing Holidays programmes,  you can set up your own sponsorship page at VirginMoneyGiving.
