Every year, the Trust is extremely grateful of the support that it receives from both local and national businesses. All help, big or small can make a difference to the lives of children diagnosed with cancer.
The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust received no statutory funding. As such, the support that we receive from businesses, organisations and individuals is vital to enable us to continue our work.
We are honoured that several businesses and clubs have chosen the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust as their, "Charity of the Year." We are exceptionally grateful for this and would like to share some information about them. Please do take a look at their links or click on their logos below to find out a little more about them.

Working together, because the children of today all deserve a tomorrow.
Gaudet Lauce Golf Club
Gaudet Luce Golf Club is proud to have the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust as our chosen charity for 2020.
We have over eight hundred members at Gaudet Luce from young children to players who are over eighty years of age. We have players who are new to golf and others who have low handicaps and are County Captains or representatives.
We have chosen to support the GKCCT because it is a local charity which provides grants for research into rare childhood cancers as well as supporting families who are going through extremely difficult times.
We hope that through our efforts this year, we can contribute to the excellent work of the GKCCT.

GKCCT work hard to promote and protect good health among children, in particular by raising awareness of childhood cancer? and to also provide education on the early signs and symptoms of childhood cancer thus promoting earlier diagnosis.
GKCCT also provide grants for research into the causes and treatments of paediatric solid tumours, concentrating in particular on rarer solid cancer types. Support is also offered to for families of children with rare aggressive solid tissue tumours.
£500 could give a grant to a family facing funeral and other costs following the death of their child from a solid tissue tumour
£900 could cover the costs of printing and distribution of 30,000 awareness cards. This will reach 60 children that will be diagnosed with cancer before their 15th Birthday
£50,000 could fund a grant for a new research project into a kinder or more effective treatment for children with difficult to treat solid tumours of childhood.
Throughout 2020 we will be taking part in a number of fun activities like wolf runner, hikes, walks, sky dives, triathlons, football tournaments and more!
We have now confirmed our exciting itinerary which we are pleased to share with you.

Bransford Golf Club
It was with great pride that I accepted the role as Club Captain of Bransford Golf Club for the 2020 Season.
This year, the main section of the club is to raise funds for The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.
I became inspired by the GKCCT through the support they showed not only little Oscar of Pitmaston School which I am sure many of you are aware of, but many other children within the county of Herefordshire Worcestershire & Gloucestershire through emotional & financial support.
The Trust also funds vital research into kinder safer treatments for children affected by rare cancers. I am so pleased through this support,
Andrew Goodall – Bransford Golf Club Captain 2020
