Cancer Care Parcel: What We Do For People Affected By Cancer
Cancer Care Parcel partners with UK charities helping them fundraise and raise awareness. We also provide gift box donations and financial support. In addition, we drive awareness campaigns and acting on the advice of our supporters, fill gaps that are needed in the UK Cancer Community.
The team at Cancer Care Parcel all have experience with cancer, either as a patient, survivor, family member or friend.
Using profit to support the community
We donate to Cancer Charities and help with their awareness campaigns
In September 2017 we started a project to donate £1 from the sale of specific parcels to our charity partners. and to provide resources to help with their awareness campaigns

With our communities help, Cancer Care Parcel have compiled The UK Cancer Directory
The UK Cancer Directory lists verified cancer charities, support groups, therapists, suppliers, bloggers and services. All listings are genuine cancer charities, support groups and companies based in the UK. We are not listing any sites which make claims to prevent or cure cancer. Once a site is submitted we verified the sites personally to make sure they are genuine.
This is a work in progress with the aim to have all UK resources in one place for the cancer community To find out more click here.
Cancer Care Parcel spends a lot of time writing and sourcing articles to benefit the cancer community.
Our primary aim is to provide some insight into what people are going through when they have cancer, with advice on
- what to say and do
- what not to say or do
- which products may or may not be suitable as gifts
We also include news items and updates on research plus personal stories. You can see our articles at www.cancercareparcel.co.uk/talking-cancer
As well as supporting and helping grow the awareness campaigns of selected UK cancer charities, at the start of 2018 we launched the #StopTellingMe campaign. It all started with this post
