Helping Young Cancer Patients in India

Dragonfly Cancer Trust is raising funds for young cancer patients in the UK, through a project in March 2021. There will be a 10-day challenge in Kerala where participants will trek through the Indian mountains and wilderness, and then help out with improvement work on the Trivandrum children’s hospice, such as repainting, gardening, or building leisure facilities.

This is intended to be a community project between the fundraising participants, the charity, and the children with cancer and their families. You will be a real guest and participant, not simply a tourist, although there will be breathtaking views of the highest tea plantations in the world!

The money you raise will enable Dragonfly Cancer Trust to continue its work supporting children and young people in the UK with limited time, providing them with unique opportunities to create lasting memories with their loved ones.

Jane Dennison, the Chief Executive Officer at Dragonfly Cancer Trust, said: “It is truly a life-changing experience for everyone who is involved. In addition to helping out the community, fundraisers are going to experience authentic Indian culture.”

Dragonfly Cancer Trust is organising a free special event for people who are interested in hearing more about the Trek and its significance on 6 February, 6 pm, at the MEA House, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
