A Heartwarming Collaboration
Throughout September, Firestarter began proudly working with a Gloucestershire based, childhood cancer charity, called Emily’s Gift. Our Business Development Executive Daniella met the lovely Julie Kent at a networking event, after a brief chat they arranged a few one-to-one meetings where it became clear that Firestarter could play a part in supporting this amazing charity.
About Emily’s Gift
Emily’s Gift aims to raise £500,000 by March 2024, to sponsor a psychologist for children undergoing cancer treatment and provide support to their families at the Emily Kent Unit in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital’s paediatric oncology department.
The funds raised will guarantee the psychologist’s position for a decade. Presently, the unit accommodates more than 30 children undergoing cancer treatment, including those in remission who require regular scans. The psychologist’s role is vital in offering much-needed emotional support to these children and their families.
Emily’s Gift was setup in 2023 by Julie Kent whose daughter Emily, tragically passed away due to childhood cancer. Everything that Julie does with Emily’s Gift is for Emily and the hundreds of children and their families that are affected by childhood cancer.
