Please donate to our cause, our initial target is £60,000 per year, which will enable us to fund a research scientist within Stergios’ team at Kings College Hospital London.

Every single penny we raise will go directly to research via Stergios’ team at King’s College Hospital.  Their work will include:

  • the genetic mapping of glioblastoma on a worldwide basis
  • specific clinical trials
  • establishing faster testing for new and existing drugs to target glioblastoma
  • getting drugs to clinics and therefore patients more quickly
  • developing new ways of delivering medication directly to the site of the tumour

To donate online click the button below - we accept credit card payments using VISA, Mastercard and American Express via www.paypal.com (which enables you to send payments quickly and securely online using a credit card or bank account).

We know that some people would prefer to donate by cheque rather than use Paypal.  If that's the case, please make your cheque payable to Charlotte's BAG, and send it to:

Charlottes Bag

PO Box 5439

BRIGHTON

BN50 8JR


If you enclose your name and address and ideally an email address we can write to acknowledge safe receipt, and more importantly thank you for your kindness. 

 

Don't forget, if you are a UK taxpayer you can complete the Gift Aid form and Charlotte's BAG will receive an extra 25p for every £1 you donate - the Government allows charities to reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you. As long as you are a basic rate taxpayer (earning over £11,000 per annum) we can claim Gift Aid on your donation.

If you are happy to do this please tick here and fill out a gift aid form before pressing the donate button: Gift Aid my donation.

The legacy that Charlotte left, in terms of her vlogs and the support and information they provide for other teenage cancer sufferers has enabled us to start Charlotte’s BAG.

A legacy from you to Charlotte’s BAG will help the fight against glioblastoma, so that one day soon we can stop the destruction of lives and families that it causes.

If you are considering making or amending your will and would like to remember Charlotte’s BAG your solicitor can help you with the correct wording to ensure that your will is legal. The most important thing to include is our name, address and registered charity number:


  • Charlotte’s BAG
  • Barn House
  • Tartane Lane
  • Dymchurch
  • Kent
  • TN29 0LJ

  • Registered charity in England (1169419)

 

We've been very lucky with supporters doing things for us (Bob Machin and his triathlon, Claudia Ligori and her half-marathon are just two examples) and several people have suggested we look at organisations other than justgiving. Having explored it in depth, what we have found is that justgiving seems to work best for us when people are doing things off their own bat. They do take a commission, but are very well-organised and the money comes through quickly.

Others, like virginmoney and BTmydonate actually charge the charity a monthly fee for being a 'nominated' charity, up to around £30 a month, which as Charlotte's BAG we do not think is a valid use of the money people are raising for research into glioblastoma.

People have also questioned the paypal commission; again, it is a simple and efficient payment system, and as a registered charity with them we receive a monthly donation of a percentage of what people have spent with them.

So if you feel the urge to take part in a triathlon or a marathon (!) and want to support us we'd recommend justgiving for your social media campaign; or if you want to divert some of your ebay sales to Charlotte's BAG you can be sure that we do pretty well out of paypal!
