12 Nov

So the next donation will be going to the Willow Foundation – who are a charity that provide special days for seriously ill people aged 16-40years old. I, myself, have actually benefited from this fantastic charity and I would actually say it was the best day of my life so far – but more about that when I reveal my ‘big secret’! £1000 will be going to them after Christmas. Click here to find out more about the Willow Foundation.

Now, I’m thinking that the £1000 after that should go to the Little Princess Trust – this is a charity that provides real hair wigs to children suffering hair loss from cancer treatment. Click here for more about them. What do you think of that as an idea?

I’m also wondering about Coppafeel! as the recipient of £1000 after that, go here for info and then tell me what you reckon. I have tweeted them to find out what the money would actually go towards, but from what I’ve gathered it would be put into their campaign to raise awareness of the importance of checking for breast cancer and catching it early.


Now do any of you have any more ideas for cancer charities that you would like The Knock on Effect to donate to?

I would also like to say a big thank you to Steve from Buildbase – we have received a £500 cheque from him and the boys which will help us make these fantastic donations.

Another huge congratulations to James Beard who ran the Great South Run on 24th Oct and managed to finish in 01:29:39. His efforts raised £500 which he will be handing over to the Willow Foundation – as suggested by TKOE.

Isn’t this just brilliant? Make sure you help those less fortunate than you this Christmas by buying your presents from or even add our items to your Christmas list! Make our donation targets possible by spending every penny you can and spread the word!

    This is brilliant Rosie! Re our Christmas get together do you have any requests for what we should do/eat/drink etc. I was definitely thinking we should make this a photo opportunity christmas. Taking photos is something that just doesn’t happen enough xxx

    Fantastic. Definately a big yes to the Little Princess Trust. It’s always upsetting when my son loses his hair and I think it is a bit easier for boys. We were told of this charity but my son decided just to use a hat- but he is young. It’s such a visible sign of the treatment/illness and people do stare which interrupts you as you go about trying to live a normal life. The film illustrates brilliantly the impact of a good wig on the whole family.
    Congrats to you on raising all this money for such worthy charities.

    yes, the Little Princess Trust is a good one. For what seems a trivial thing to some people (losing your hair when you have a big illness, surely that’s the least of your worries, even with adults) it’s a great thing to not have to worry about. Even my Dad, with only his ‘bum fluff’ (his words) was upset about it falling out when he had cancer and he was in his late 60s 🙂

    You’re a really good ‘un Rosie. I’m proud to follow you, to be able to say to people ‘look at the website, order from here’.

    Will get the Fatman to tune into Inside Out on 22 Nov, using his technology (Sky or sommat!).

    take care
