Over £180,000 raised from Telegraph Christmas Charity Appeal

For Christmas 2019, we were chosen by the Telegraph to be one of their Christmas appeal charities. We can now reveal how much was raised, and how this money will help those affected by blood cancer.

In November 2019, we announced that Leukaemia Care had been chosen as one of the Telegraph’s charities for their Christmas appeal.

We can now reveal that the appeal raised a phenomenal £188,105.05! The total raised will be invaluable in helping us to continue to support all those affected by blood cancer, whether that’s through services such as our free information booklets, our counselling fund, or our nurse-led helpline.

Our appeal featured stories from patients, as well as their loved ones, covering topics such as late diagnosis, grief, the financial impact of blood cancer and the need for more stem cell donors.

Peter Mondon, Leukaemia Care CEO, said, “We are grateful to the Telegraph for choosing us as one of their Christmas appeal charities, and we are especially thankful for all the donations we received. These funds will go a long way to improving support for blood cancer patients and their loved ones.”

This appeal would not have been possible without the wonderful patients and their loved ones who shared their stories. We would like to say a very big thank you to those who participated in the appeal, as well as those who kindly donated to our cause.
