We have sent 101 bells out across the North East and Cumbria – one to represent every child diagnosed with cancer last year.
If you find one of our bells please take a photo, share on your socials and help spread awareness… then re-hide (not too well!) for someone else to find.
The Bell – a poem written by Jenny Pearson
As part of the charity’s launch we were very proud and grateful to be able to share this very special poem that was written for us by the lovely Jenny Pearson – local published children’s author and teacher. Jenny did a workshop with some of the young people that have been through, or are currently undergoing treatment for, cancer at the Great North Childrens Hospital, and then wrote this poem to help us raise awareness of childhood cancer. We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to the families that helped with this project, and of course the young people who performed and helped to inspire Jenny.
