Why We Need Your Help
By taking part in the One Million Step Challenge, you will not only be moving towards a healthier you, but you'll be helping two of Merseyside & Cheshire's best loved charities.
Last year, treatment for solid tumour cancers and blood cancers were brought together in Liverpool for the first time. Now, The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is building a brand new cancer hospital in the heart of the city.
We know that many teenagers and young people are affected by blood cancers, so we've teamed up with Bloom to fund a brand new unit at the hospital for these patients. It'll be a dedicated space for youngsters to receive their cancer treatment, with access to the facilities and services they need, specialist staff and a space where they can chill out and socialise with people their age.
But we need your help! Every step you take takes us closer to that £100,000 we need to build this incredible unit.
We are so often told that The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is unlike any other hospital. The Charity has funded a range of projects which help to to make Clatterbridge a place that stays in people’s hearts, including bringing cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes and breaking boundaries by becoming the first in the UK to offer a number of treatments.
