I am about to spend a weekend climbing Ben Nevis - Scotland, Scarfell Pike - England and Snowdon - Wales, otherwise known as the Three Peaks. I have decided to raise money in memory of my little cousin Oliver, who died earlier this year.
The charity CHOC (please see description to the left of this page) was chosen by Oliver's parents. Any and all donations are much appreciated, and because of the Pound to Rand exchange rate every little you donate can make a big difference.
I have set a target of 6000 rand or approx £450, but I'm secretly hoping to smash that and raise lots lots more!!
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to donate. Your contribution to this page will benefit the charity listed on the left.
Please donate generously.
Many thanks for your support.
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. CHOC has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies heavily on corporate sponsors, donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of these little ones.
Their comprehensive support improves the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer and offers families a wide range of psychosocial services and practical support such as counselling, free accommodation, free transport and transport fund to ensure that no child abandons treatment due to the family not affording transport costs, food parcels as they recognise the financial difficulties families often face and parent to parent support groups. CHOC also plays a leading advocacy role and promotes early detection to save lives nationally.
