The gift of a cuddle

THINGS are hard for many of us this Christmas but especially for children who are being treated for cancer. 

Instead of enjoying parties, presents and celebrations with their family, many who need to be in hospital will be separated from loved ones because of coronavirus, and going through painful cancer treatments. These children really need a cuddle.

You can help with a gift of just £10 to Cancer Support UK. The charity will use the cash to send one of its teddies to a child who will spend Christmas being treated in hospital.

A Cancer Support UK spokesperson said: "We will arrange for a teddy to be delivered safely to a child in a hospital or hospice in the UK. To add a personal touch, you can even send a special message which will be written on the ted's gift tag."
