It all began 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...

When the cloth 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. In return for a donation, we send bags out to cancer patients, and donate some bags to hospitals and other charities.

Volunteers

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.
