£90,000 awarded

Children’s cancer charity, The Joshua Tree made its move into North Wales officially in October thanks to secured funding from The Steve Morgan Foundation.

The grant will significantly enhance the support The Joshua Tree offers to families affected by childhood cancers across North Wales.

The Joshua Tree has been a provider of physical, psychological and emotional (educational/emotional and practical) support to families affected by childhood cancers for more than 13 years from their support centre in Cheshire.

Founded in 2006 by Lynda and David Hill after their son was diagnosed with leukaemia, the family discovered a distinct lack in support services for all family members during the traumatic experience of childhood cancer.

The £90,000 grant funding will secure a full-time Family Support Worker for three years and will be based out of the new North Wales Family Support Hwb in Colwyn Bay, to support families affected by childhood cancers.
