The Edinburgh Marathon 2023

Why Should You Join Team Cookie

2023 is a special year for the charity as it sees us commemorating 10 years since we lost Christopher to  Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at the the age of 19.  This year also would have been his 30th Birthday,  we want to celebrate everything the charity has achieved through his inspiration and through each fundraisers inspirational journey, as we wouldn’t have been able to fulfil Christopher’s wishes without everything you do to help support us.

What Are We Aiming to Achieve in 2023?

Throughout our 10 years we have funded a variety of community based projects, worked with other charities in order to complete our goals jointly, funded over 25 vein finders to a range of local hospital wards and funded a section of the new Hospital for Sick Children at Little France, just outside Edinburgh…this has all been done based on our key principle of spending funds where they were raised.

The following projects are what we are aiming to complete with your help over the next 12 months;

  • provide 10 vein finders at a cost of £40,000

  • Fund two Sanctuary Gardens into Local Schools Where Funding is Raised

  • Provide an emergency grant fund of £5,000 to support emergency grant applications.
