Fred. Olsen cruise lines' auction item


Give Cancer the Boot

First a foreword as to where the money you bid on to win this cruise will go.

Give Cancer the Boot was set up to provide a family fun day to raise money for the two hospitals that have treated, and continue to treat, Oliver and Lucas, two 12 years boys who are best friends and have both been diagnosed with cancer.

The boys support each other through their battles, both on good days and bad days. The aim of the day was to provide a day of fun for them both, provide some 'normality' amongst a life of medications and hospital trips and for others to come together and show their support. 

Fred. Olsen Cruises were so touched by their story that they have generously donated this amazing cruise to help raise money for both My WiSH Charity and Addenbrookes Charitable Trust. Please read on to find out more about this fantastic cruise and remember...you've got to be in it to win it!
