The pandemic has led to delays to cancer diagnosis and treatment, and with more than 55,000 cancer patients in England currently waiting for key tests, the emotional and practical support provided by rare cancer charities such as WMUK, is needed more more than ever. As the need for our services increases, the donations that we depend upon have decreased.
Launch date - Sunday 20 September 2020

The challenges can be anything from walking or cycling for 20 minutes, to making and sending a postcard to 20 friends, or baking 20 treats for family and friends, so whether you're 4 or 94, there is something for everyone...
