Welcome

Chemogiftbags charity is for ladies and gents undergoing chemotherapy for Breast Cancer and are based in Reading, Berkshire. We operate in the whole of the Thames Valley.

Introducing our new patron

We are delighted to welcome Kerry Godliman as our new patron. Kerry told us, on accepting the role, "I’m very happy to be asked to be patron for this wonderful charity. The value and comfort the chemogiftbags provide for the men and women receiving chemotherapy is such a simple and kind gesture. They offer a reminder that friendship and comfort are what’s needed to support people through their treatment and time of need".

Nominate someone

If you would like to nominate someone to receive a Chemogiftbag, please email or contact us on Facebook. We then contact the Ambassador for that area and then they in turn will make contact with the nominee and arrange to meet at the hospital on their next appointment.

All of our items are donated by members of the public or local businesses.

Past Events

28th September 2019

Although the forecast for the last Saturday in September looked bleak, we turned up with fingers crossed that the weather would be kind to us. In contrast to the wet conditions we expected to face we were pleasantly surprised to meet bright sunshine, albeit a bit windy.

Today was the first attempt at our Charity Cricket Fundraiser, our chosen venue was Windsor Cricket Club with a wonderful view of the Queen’s favourite residence.
