The Charities We Support

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. We know that what they do need is to be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in an environment tailored for them.

We want every person affected by breast cancer to get the best treatment, information and support, by combining the personal experiences of people affected by breast cancer with clinical expertise.

Training dogs to help people with life-threatening health conditions giving their 'owners' confidence, a better quality of life, greater independence and above all saving their lives on a daily basis.
Dogs are also trained to identify the odour of cancer. This allows the potential to develop a method of diagnosing cancer which would be simple and non-invasive.

Help and Advice

We provide public advice, and support a national network of independent salons and professionals who provide a wig styling service for people suffering from cancer and medical hair loss. Importantly, each of these professionals have approached us personally. They pledge their commitment to responsible training and provide a caring and respectful  service for their clients.

Thanks to our Sponsors and Supporters

Running my own design and artwork business has come in very handy when it comes to producing all of the menus and place names!!

Our founder. Gillian, we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for such a fantastic idea xx

I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Gill when a very large organisation let us down for our Charity Ball. Nothing was too much trouble and Gill made our tables look stunning, she has been with us ever since and I am proud to recommend her through my event management business as a preferred supplier and I will always recommend her to anyone wanting stunning flowers and arrangements for any occasion.

Shelley has not only been a guest of ours at our founder satellite, Shelley joined us in 2013 to promote our event through Crawley Happy Times.

A fantastic hotel who always do us proud and whom I am very proud to work closely with. Long may it continue!

The best cup cakes I have ever tasted, Victoria spent hours individually wrapping every personal cup cake for our ladies, and despite me saying that we hope our numbers will grow year on year, she still wants to be involved on a yearly basis. A real treat xx

Bob and Elaine have supported By Invitation Only for many years with continuous sponsorship and raffle prize donations. I hope you know how much this means and we couldn't do this without you. Thank you xx

With every event, Jenny has been onboard, not only by being hugely supportive with the hire of her beautiful tiaras for our ladies, but with her numerous donations too. A real star! Thank you xx

Robert is a fantastic wedding and event planner whose help is always so much appreciated. You made the room look stunning for our lunch. Thank you xx

Graham has supported us for years with our sound equipment. Nothing is ever too much trouble. We couldn't do it without you.

Sophie is a true talent. We were very lucky to see her perform this year. Long may we have you at our lunches xx

Steve has always been incredibly supportive of our charity events and has generously allowed the use of many of his images on our website. Steve also has the knack of getting even the men to dress up with his mobile studio!!

Tony came up trumps after we used
Pa Larkin's pride and joy 'Primrose', his vintage Rolls Royce, as our wedding car.
It felt very special to sit in her again after 16 years!!

In my spare time I am a PartyLite consultant. PartyLite actively support CLIC Sargent, one of the charities supported at our Anniversary Ball, and PartyLite very kindly donated product for our table raffles. Thank you.

Unlike the paparazzi, Barney put our guests at ease as soon as they stepped out on to the red carpet!

Heyland and Whittle very generously supported our 2013 lunch by providing not only beautiful table raffle gift bags containing a wonderful candle and reed diffuser, but they also donated a fantastic hamper for the main raffle itself full of wonderful, expertly handmade, Heyland & Whittle products.

Any girl will tell you the benefits of chocolate, it originates from beans so is definitely 1 of your 5 a day!! So how could we refuse the offer of the most enormous chocolate cake for our raffle. For years now, this is always one of the first things to go (in more ways than one!!). Thanks Simon xx
