Our impact

During lockdown our focus has been to reach young cancer patients with limited time who have not been able to enjoy the outside world.

We've helped to make life a little bit easier by providing cash gifts, specialist chairs, garden activities, home weddings, televisions, sensory toys, therapy pools, hand castings and personal keepsakes to name a few.

We need your donations more than ever.

Donation Bags

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.
