Lakeside Concert Charitable Trust has chosen the Child Cancer Foundation as the charity to fundraise for at the 2024 concert. Collection buckets will be available at the event, and we are pleased to inform you that the fundraising page for the Child Cancer Foundation is now live! You can donate before, at the concert, or after to show your support.
Child Cancer Foundation is a New Zealand charity that provides invaluable support to children and their families on their cancer journey. By focusing on the whānau instead of the cancer, the foundation recognises that each family’s experience is unique, as is the support they need.
Child Cancer Foundation’s objective is to foster the care and support of children who have been diagnosed with cancer, their whanau, and primary caregivers. The foundation provides various services to achieve its objectives, including counselling, access to educational opportunities, personal development grants, and support groups such as the Whānau Connect Groups.
In 2022/23 alone, the foundation supported over 1,300 families in New Zealand by providing them access to the Beads of Courage® program, counselling services, and grocery shops worth over $133,000.
Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of these families by providing them with hope and support during one of the most challenging times. By donating to the Child Cancer Foundation, you can help provide crucial support to children and their families on their cancer journey.
