Registered Charity No
The MCA Trust supports cancer patients under the age of 22 across East London and Essex. We aim to bring hope and happiness to these vibrant young people and their families during some of the most challenging times they’ll ever face.
The scope of our work is varied. We provide financial and emotional support inside and outside of hospital environments.
Working in partnership with local NHS Trusts, we identify and fund projects that will make a real difference to children who are battling cancer. Completed projects include purchasing sophisticated medical equipment and refurbishing dedicated children’s oncology areas to create a better experience for all users.
Respite between treatments is a fundamental aspect of every child’s recovery. We also recognise that the cancer journey is hard on the whole family, so one of the ways we provide support comes from arranging experiences and holidays to sought-after locations that many children might wish for.
Every penny from the lottery is going towards our MCA Trust Education and Careers scheme - funding private tuition for children that have lost out on education due to strenuous cancer treatments.
