Chemogiftbags (registered charity No. 1168095) 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".
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.
Every bit of help is appreciated

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.
Its not all doom and gloom
