"We are delighted to have been part of the Friends at Work Consortium since it was formed in 2004. The recruitment of donors is efficient, cost effective and indicative of the excellent relationships that Bell Fundraising has developed with the companies they work with. For a small charity like Childlife, payroll giving is a regular source of unrestricted income and for the donor, it is a simple and tax efficient way to give to charity. Since joining Friends at Work, Childlife has seen a profit of almost £133,000."

Despite enormous progress in medicine, all around the UK today there are hundreds of thousands of sick and disabled children who need help. Research is the key to saving many of these children from a lifetime of suffering. At Action we find and fund the very best research to save and change children’s lives.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only UK charity wholly dedicated to beating lung cancer. We support patients and their families with our nurse led helpline and national support groups. We fund various research projects aiming to detect lung cancer earlier and at a time in which curative treatment becomes a reality.
Anyone with lungs can get lung cancer. Man, woman, young, old, smoker and non-smoker, lung cancer does not discriminate, but sadly people do. Lung cancer claims far more lives than any other cancer type in the UK, yet shockingly it receives the least funding. Sadly outcomes for patients are extremely poor with the average survival rate just under 6 months.
Together we have the potential to revolutionise the future of lung cancer, giving patients and their families the attention and support they deserve. Through raising awareness, challenging the stigma, campaigning for improved treatments and funding more research, with your help we hope to support all those living with lung cancer.
