This is an average value of £3000 per family with £1000 per family giving away for bereavement support. Well done to all of you! The families we have helped have been able to focus on their child without that financial worry cloud above their heads…they are all struggling as these parents have not been able to work owed to the 24/7 care they give the child they are blessed with.

The Charlie Cookson Foundation know first hand the great difficulties these families face and know only too well how difficult it can be coping with the stresses and strains of everyday life on top of caring for a seriously ill child.

This is where we step in….a charity like no other. There to support these families when they need us most. BUT…without the support of you all we could not have made this possible, each and every supporter, volunteer, fundraiser has contributed to this incredible change we have been able to make for these inspirational families.

Our ever growing CCF families will forever hold a very special place in all of our hearts here at CCF as we strive to financially support many more…
