Georgia’s Teenage Cancer Appeal supports families in Essex who have a child with cancer or other life threatening or life limiting conditions.
We will do whatever we can to make their lives a little better during the most difficult time.
Laptops, tablets and mobile phones to help teenagers continue their studies and keep in contact with friends.
Garden playhouses, pushchairs, bean bags and trips to places like Legoland bringing families together.
We know that caring for anyone with cancer becomes very expensive so we can provide financial grants to cover travel costs of regular visits to London hospitals.
GTCA funds various projects within other charitable organisations that directly support Essex families.
POD Childrens Charity is a nationwide charity which organizes entertainment for children in hospital, helping to alleviate the trauma of a hospital. GTCA ensures POD is funded to provide children’s entertainment in 4 Essex hospitals at least once a month. Skittleman visits Queen’s Hospital in Romford, Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Basildon Hospital and Colchester Hospital.
GTCA has funded the cost of a member of the dedicated CLIC Sargent social care team to cover the South Essex area. We have supported this project for the last 4 years and have committed to a 5th year from June 2017.
To date we have donated over £65,000 to many projects at Queen’s Hospital, Romford including:
- The Georgia Cordery Butterfly Room – A sensory room on Tropical Lagoon Children’s ward.
- The Georgia Cordery Therapy Room – A complimentary therapy room on the oncology day unit.
- The Georgia Cordery Teenage and Young Adult corner in the Sunflower Suit
