The little Kindness Fund
Raised so far
Every year approximately 55,000 women and 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, making it the most common cancer*. We’re on a mission to support them by offering a littlelifts box at the beginning of their chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment. We do this by working directly with hospitals in East Anglia, where boxes are given out to patients during treatment planning or review meetings with their Oncology, Radiotherapy or Breast Care Teams.
Since the beginning of the pandemic we have received a surge in requests from breast cancer patients outside Norfolk and Suffolk enquiring how they can receive a littlelifts box. Thanks to generous support from Spacemasks, we are delighted to launch The little Kindness Fund, but we want to keep it going!
The little Kindness Fund makes a huge difference to the work that we do, making littlelifts boxes available to people undergoing treatment for breast cancer from all over the nation.
The little Kindness Fund is a discretionary fund for women and men undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment for primary or secondary breast cancer, living in England and Wales. The fund enables eligible applicants to receive a littlelifts box, free of charge, to support their emotional wellbeing and support them through their cancer treatment.

We are over the moon to be able to launch this fund now, spreading the littlelifts love further afield just when it’s needed the most. People undergoing cancer treatment are clinically extremely vulnerable, and therefore at high risk from COVID-19. The pandemic also makes access to support systems and networks more challenging for these people, and we know that littlelifts boxes provide a valuable mood-boost as well as an important sense of solidarity and kindness. Right now, kindness really does matter.
We couldn’t do it without you
Without your wonderful support, we wouldn’t be in a position to be spreading the littlelifts love and providing support and care for people all throughout England and Wales facing treatment for breast cancer.
Thank you. You really do make a difference.
