Emergency Grants

Helping to make a difference to frontline cancer charities and people living with cancer.

First £20,000 Emergency Grant goes to the wonderful FACT (Fighting All Cancers Together)

We really feel that by giving the first of these grants to FACT that it will enable them to continue to make a difference in a part of the country that really needs support during these next few difficult months.

FACT (Facing All Cancers Together) is a small charity in the North East and we’re thrilled to be giving them Walk the Walk’s first emergency grant for frontline cancer services.

So many charities are facing a real struggle during the COVID-19 pandemic. With little or no income and their workload increasing, the effect is devastating, not only for the charities, but also causing unimaginable suffering and hardship for cancer patients. Read more here.

Walk the Walk’s £20,000 Emergency Grant to the charity Cancer Support Scotland

Walk the Walk is making emergency grants to frontline cancer charities every month until the end of year and we’re thrilled to be giving our latest grant of £20,000 to Cancer Support Scotland.

The pandemic has had a devastating effect on the lives of those affected by cancer and their families. Many are shielding, isolated, have money worries, treatments postponed, all resulting in anxiety. Loneliness is another key issue and it is more crucial than ever that the mental wellbeing support provided by Cancer Support Scotland is maintained at its current level over the coming months.
