About... Chemo Gift Bags

Chemogiftbags is for ladies and gents who have Breast Cancer and are undergoing chemotherapy in the Thames Valley area. Chemogiftbags offers a service of providing a Chemogiftbag that has items suitable for use before, during and after chemotherapy. All of our items are donated by members of the public or local businesses.

The Chemogiftbags are all lovingly packed by hand with the recipient in mind. The bags are then distributed to Ambassadors in different areas of the Thames Valley. If you would like to nominate someone to receive a Chemogiftbag, please email or contact us on Facebook we then contact the Ambassador for that area and then they in turn will make contact with the nominee and arrange to meet at the hospital on their next appointment.

More information on other breast cancer related websites is available here abcdiagnosis.co.uk

Perhaps you can knit, crotchet or you are a quilter or can sew fleece blankets these are a staple requirement of our Chemogiftbags and always required no matter what time of the year it is. Or help produce our heart shaped cushions, which are always requested. You may be a crafter and make items that would be suitable to go in the bags and like to donate a gift. You may be a jeweller and would like to donate a small token of jewellery. Perhaps you are a marathon runner or a cyclist and would like to run/cycle and ask for sponsors for Chemogiftbags through our BT Mydonate. Ask for sponsors.

You might be a corporate company reading this and want to sponsor us? - please contact Chemogiftbags by email. Donate by doing a dress down day at work, or by holding a Coffee & Cup Cake event. Perhaps your forte is marketing or asking for donations. You might like to help pack the bags, or be an Ambassador for an area in which we do not have a representative? There are so many ways you can help. Finally, we would be happy to receive any suggestions you have; if we think they could work, we will implement them.
