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.

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.
