Bethany's Wish Summer Gala day took place at Stoke Green Park on the 12th July 2014. The sun was shining bright and the event was truly magical from start to finish. 

We had performances from Pattisons Theatre Arts, Gemini Cheerleaders, Element dance, to name but a few, Godiva reptiles providing creepy critters to keep people on their toes, bouncy castles, ice cream and a fantastic bake off event. 

We raised over £3,5000 on the day which will make a massive difference to our local support group for children and their families in Coventry and Warwickshire dealing with childhood cancer. We are continuously working to ensure that the services we provide really make a difference to these children and help to make them smile in the darkness. 

A big thank you to Claire McEnery and the wonderful event planning team and also to all that donated time, equipment and their services to help the day be the success it was. See you all again next year! 

CCC14
Saturday June 7, 2014

The 16th of May witnessed professionals, parents and researchers from around the UK come together at our very first conference, CCC14. The day was a positive and productive event with kind support from the CCLG and sponsorship from ENCCA and also the Coventry Building Society. Parents and professionals came together and heard from world-class speakers concerning aspects of childhood cancer research and latest developments. We hope to be able to repeat and build upon this fantastic experience for next year and set the bar for a national strategy for parents of children with cancer, influencing and participating in research to find a cure for our children. Thank you to all that helped make it happen and here's to CCC15!
