Last year, we announced that we had been chosen as one of two charities of the year by the Worcester Bosch Group. Over the last 12 months, the staff at Worcester Bosch have been working hard holding fundraising events. From dress down days and fantasy football to moustache shaving, bake sales and bike rides, they have done them!

We have received the news that an incredible £14,181 has been raised for the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust by the team at Worcester Bosch. We hugely appreciate this amazing donation, thank you to all that helped in any way. We will use the funds to help us reach so many more children. 

​How will the funds help?

  • £5000 will enable us to reach another 60,000 children with our awareness cards. It will cover the costs of printing and distribution of the cards. This will enable us to reach another 300 children that will be diagnosed with cancer before their 15th birthday. 
  • £9,000 will be able to be put towards vital research looking for kinder and more effective treatments for children fighting aggressive tumours with poor survival rates.
  • Due the generosity of the team at Worcester Bosch, alongside some funds already raised, we have almost enough to fund another vital research programme into rare and aggressive childhood cancers.

It is through research and improving treatments that we can give these children the best possible chances. Thank you to Worcester Bosch for helping to make this work possible.
