Have a question about applying for a gift?

You are eligible to apply for a ‘gift’ if you are currently receiving treatment for cancer OR are in the first year following the completion of your treatment (This must include either surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy).

Applicants with a secondary or terminal diagnosis can continue to apply for gifts.

You may be signposted to our service from another agency or professional. You may have heard about us through social media, the internet or through a friend. Either way, you are eligible to apply!

No. Unfortunately we are not able to accept any documents via post or email. For data protection reasons your scanned images/photographs must be sent to us within the online form whilst applying for your chosen gift.

‘Additional gifts’ tend to be smaller, regular or lower value gifts including restaurant meals, jewellery, complimentary therapy etc. You are eligible to receive up to 2 ‘additional gifts’ per year however an application does not always guarantee you will be allocated the gift. ‘Additional Gifts’ are labelled on the website and promoted as #AdditionalGifts via social media.

‘Main gifts’ tend to be larger, one off gifts with a high value including cottage holidays, retreats, hotels stays etc. You are eligible to receive up to 1 ‘main gift’ per year however an application does not always guarantee you will be allocated the gift. ‘Main gifts’ are labelled on the website and promoted as #MainGifts via social media.

Sometimes we are donated last minute gifts or several of the same gifts for example tickets to a show or beauty bundles etc. You can apply for as many ‘Extra Gifts’ as you like per year however an application does not always guarantee you will be allocated the gift. ‘Extra Gifts’ are labelled on the website and promoted as #ExtraGifts via social media.

You must create an account with us before applying for a gift. Please use the ‘log in’ tab in the top right-hand corner of the page. You can simply apply by clicking on the ‘apply for this gift’ button on the gift of your choice. You are required to upload formal photo ID (not a selfie or photo) and a letter confirming your diagnosis.

Our current guidelines stipulate applicants are eligible to receive up to 1 ‘Main Gift’, 2 ‘Additional Gifts’ and can apply for as many ‘Extra Gifts’ as desired per year. Please note that due to the high demand on the charity’s finite resources, a submission of an application form does not guarantee the award of a gift or experience. The Directors reserve the right to amend restrictions subject to supply and demand.
There are a variety of ways of receiving your gift. Some gifts are sent by post, some may be emailed or you may pick up your gift at the venue. We will inform you of the process via email.
Family members of your choice are also eligible to enjoy your gift or experience up to the number specified on your ‘gift’ e.g a restaurant meal for 4 people.

Family and friends or those with caring duties can also apply for a gift. They will however be required to produce a document confirming the diagnosis of the person they care for. The person directly affected by cancer must benefit from the gift or experience.

Unfortunately you may not be successful for every application and this could be for any of the following reasons:

  • We have had a high number of applications for this gift.
  • You have not submitted the correct documentation (please see guidance on the website)
  • You do not fall within our current timescale criteria i.e 1 year post last treatment.
  • You have already been allocated one main gift and two additional gifts.
  • You have applied for a ‘Special Projects’ gift and you do not match the specific criteria.
  • We would encourage you to apply for another gift, just make sure you are eligible and that you provide all the necessary evidence.
