Help Save the Lives of Thousands of Children
William’s Fund was established in 2001 in commemoration of William Dodd, whose young life ended at the age of four years and nine months due to an unknown form of cancer. William’s Fund has since been raising money for the Childhood Cancer Research Fund and has raised over half a million pounds to date.
Dr Mitchell, who was William’s consultant is running the research programme, which is very specific to Childhood Cancer, does not have any funding other than charity and has no official fundraisers. All the profits raised by William’s Fund go directly to the research programme.
Will you join us as a partner committed to supporting research?
Supporting the William’s Fund would help to ensure that vital research into the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of childhood cancers will help save more children’s lives. As a result we hope to reduce the number of children who become fatalities of cancer and every penny of your support would go directly to funding this research, thus playing a pivotal role in saving and changing lives.
This Christmas we are again supporting the fantastic work done by Peter and Johanna Dodd in raising money for research into childhood cancers. Their son William died aged only four but was an inspiration to all who knew him. His grandmother produces a beautiful card every Christmas and the sale of these cards is a major fund raiser. You can also contribute to their funds by joining the William’s Fund Wine Club, buy some excellent champagne and wine, and know that you are making a direct contribution to their great work.
All donations made to and monies raised for William’s Fund go directly to the Childhood Cancer Research Fund. William’s Fund is run by volunteers and the CCRF is run by the Charitable Funds Department at Oxford. Therefore there are no administrative charges and all your money goes to pure research.
