A charity collection was held at the European Mediscience Awards 2023 in respect of two charities: bccs and Young Lives vs Cancer. The total amount raised which was split equally between these two charities was:
bccs provides highly professional and well‑supported Social Workers and Counsellors to help children and young people who are in need.
bccs works in the East End of London and Essex with children, young people and their families and schools to help them overcome emotional difficulties, behavioural problems and their root causes. The prime focus of the work is to provide an early intervention service to enable them to address difficulties that may be impeding their educational, social and emotional development.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.
At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying the rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at Uni, life becomes full of fear. Families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer we get that and we do everything in our power so no family stands alone to cancer.
We know everyone’s different, so we work hard to make sure each family has what they need to get through.
