It all started with a bag of apples...

One of our trustees was sitting in hospital, being treated with the grisly treatment which is chemotherapy. A cider apple farmer appeared, ready to have his treatment (possibly still in wellies, covered in straw - some of the details are hazy), laden with carrier bags full of apples. Despite not knowing anyone in the room, he had decided to treat everyone with the fruits of his harvest.

In difficult moments, the little things really can mean the most and this had such a wonderful impact on all the patients, that the idea of the Treatment Bag was born...

Every bag is lovingly packed, wrapped and despatched...

We source our lovely earth-friendly, cloth bags from a wonderful social enterprise in India, established to help women find work in a fair-trade environment.

When the bags arrive in deepest Somerset, our volunteers collate our selection of goodies, (generously donated or discounted by our amazing suppliers), and carefully hand-wrap each one.

The bags are tagged and distributed by a network of fantastic Treatment Bag friends.

We donate the bags to organisations, and also hand them out to private individuals.

Help us reach our goal of x52 bags per day, x52 weeks per year

Volunteers

The Treatment Bag is run entirely by volunteers, so every penny goes directly towards more bags for more patients.

The dedicated trustees are an email away, and would be thrilled to hear from you, so please do not hesitate to contact them at:

hello@treatmentbag.co.uk

Running the charity just wouldn't be possible without the amazing support of all the Treatment Bag volunteers. They really are a special bunch.

Their endless energy and generosity of spirit, means that there is a constant flow of bags reaching patients every day. We can't thank them enough.
