CHICS is a North West UK based children's cancer charity, providing information and support to children, and their families, affected by cancer. Our mission is to give cancer patients and their families the up-to-date information, practical advice and support they need to reduce the fear and uncertainty of cancer. As a charity, we rely on voluntary contributions (donations) and fundraising to provide this service.

Click here to watch a short video I put together showing some of the things CHICS do through the donations and fundraising. Sorry the quality isn't very good, but it was made several years ago using low quality pictures and I'm not a professional, just a CHICS parent doing this site voluntarily. The backing music was writen and performed by "Point of Issue", the band our son David was in when he was at school (aged 15) some 14 years after being diagnosed with ALL. David is now 25 (as of 2017) and continues to play - though he now works in I.T. - and has been in several bands and duets, performing gigs throughout Runcorn, Widnes, Warrington and Liverpool - including at the Cavern - and Portugal.

Why not make a donation today!

Your donation will help us fund trips, parties and gifts for children who have cancer. Your donation will also help us to run, maintain and improve our facilities for children who have cancer and their families, including our respite caravan which allow the children and their families to have a much needed break.

Although we all help on a voluntary basis, because they are our children who are ill or have been ill, CHICS does seek outside funding for two posts - CHICS Co-ordinator / Family Support Worker and a Family Liaison Officer. For further details please contact the CHICS office.

To make a donation by post please make your Cheque or Postal Order payable to 'CHICS' for the amount you wish to contribute and send it to the CHICS Executive Committee treasurer at:


Please remember to indicate which of the 3 groups you would like your donation to go to (the Liverpool Group, the North Wales & West Cheshire Group or the Wirral Group). All Donations are greatly received as this helps with the running of CHICS.

CHICS Monthly Donation by Direct Debit:
Most of you will have seen adverts on TV asking you to donate a minimum of 2 a month for a particular charity. Well a number of families now donate to CHICS by direct debit each month. CHICS does not need any of your bank details as it is your bank that all arrangements are made with. If you would like to make a small monthly donation to CHICS please contact the office for a form.

Just Giving & My Donate:
All CHICS groups now have pages on Just Giving. If you are thinking of donating to CHICS online you can do it via the Just Giving site, or it can be used to sponsor anybody who is taking part in a sponsored event for CHICS. Also CHICS still have a My Donate account.

Do you work for a company who gives charitable donations? We would like to try and ask for your help in raising funds for CHICS, a few companies these days do have money set aside to give to charities, and we would be very grateful if you or your friends could possibly ask your workplaces if they could bear CHICS in mind when they do fundraising and donating in the future, as this would be a massive help to us.

Could you hold a coffee morning, raffle, or organising a bag pack at your local supermarket, or anything to help us raise money to help continue with the service we provide and continue supporting our members. Have you, or your friends and family, got in your cupboards any unwanted gifts (e.g.: ladies, men's or children's gifts) that could be used in raffles or on a tombola (e.g.: wine, spirits, toys and toiletries, etc.) to help us raise money. Could you place a collection box in your local newsagents or pub? If anyone can help in any way (e.g. sponsored events, coffee morning, school non-uniform day, etc.) please contact the office or a member of your group committee.

Have you got any fund raising ideas? Are you interested in going on our volunteer list for our charity events? If so please contact the office or a member of your group committee. Our sincere thanks go to those of you who have already responded. Your support is very much appreciated.
