About Us:

Thank you for your interest in The Thomas Ball Children's Cancer Fund.

I would like to explain briefly what we do and how we are very much involved in the community.

Sadly, having personal experience of being a parent whose child was diagnosed with cancer and later died, I know that it is one of the most traumatic things that can happen to a family. Frequent hospital stays and gruelling treatments can have a lasting impact on everyone, not only the unfortunate sick child.

At The Thomas Ball Children's Cancer Fund we recognise that a short break taken at one of our holiday lodges on the Hampshire coast can simply refresh and offer families precious time together. Our referrals come from hospitals throughout the UK but priority is given to children living in the High Wycombe area as that's where most of our fundraising takes place. 

We need your help so we can continue to offer free holidays to sick children and even expand our service so we have guaranteed funds available to maintain our Christmas group holiday to Disneyland Resort Paris for disadvantaged children. We need to raise £400 for every UK holiday and £1,000 for every holiday to Disneyland Paris, so funds are much needed.

We receive very positive feedback from our local hospitals to say that these holidays really do make a difference and are considered a vital service. 

When Thomas died back in 2003,  he was just 14 years old and had battled the disease for six years, our family had a choice, to sit back and do nothing or to carry on providing support to other families in similar situations as Thomas intended when he founded the charity himself in 1999 while on treatment for childhood cancer neuroblastoma.

We do hope that you will decide to join the lottery and help us raise funds, nobody at our charity gets paid, we are all volunteers so every penny donated is used for the sick children.

Thank you for your support, and good luck!

Yours sincerely

Mrs Elaine Ball
