No matter where in the country you live, we support young cancer patients near you.

We work with every specialist children's cancer hospital, as well as young adult units, treatment centres and hospices in over 20 major cities across the UK.

Well done Ian!

On the 4th and 5th September, Ian embarked on his World Record attempt, completing a 220 mile triathlon to raise funds for Dragonfly Cancer Trust!

We couldn't have been more proud seeing him at the finish. Huge thanks to Ian for being such a wonderful ambassador and raising a phenomenal amount of money for the young cancer patients we support.

With love from Jenson

The past 18 months have been challenging, but our spirits have been lifted by a seven year old star baker who in his own words, wanted to "send some love."

Jenson decided to sell his home made cakes and raised an amazing £110 for Dragonfly Cancer Trust!

Thank you so much, Jenson - we're sending all the love back to you!

Remembering Josh

Dragonfly Cancer Trust arranged a holiday at Center Parcs for Josh and his family where they were able to escape from everything and make each moment matter.

During lockdown we were also able to provide some lovely things to help keep him entertained at home.

Our thoughts go out to Josh's mum, Kerry who lost her beautiful little boy last month.

Center Parcs Chosen Charity

We are over the moon that Center Parcs have chosen to support Dragonfly Cancer Trust for the fifth year running.

Our gifted stays will enable families to spend quality time together, providing a positive focus to create lasting memories.

The Center Parcs team are an absolute pleasure to work with and we cannot thank them enough for their wonderful support.

Better together

We're proud to be members of the Children and Young People Cancer Coalition (CYPCC) - A group of charities working in partnership to establish a more consistent and coherent lobbying and influencing voice for children and young people with cancer in order to strengthen areas of campaigning to bring about positive policy change.

Our donation bag scheme is now back up and running with new saftey measures in place. If you’ve been having a clear-out during lockdown, please keep an eye out for your donation bag through the door. Thank you so much.

You can now support Dragonfly Cancer Trust by donating any unwanted items using the charity bags distributed and collected by The Fundraiser UK. We are delighted to be working with their team who have been working in the textile recycling industry for over 15 years, offering an ethical and responsible way to recycle your unwanted clothing, toys, CDs and DVDs whilst helping to raise funds to support our work. Please look out for your donation bag through the door and ensure their official collectors take your items away.
