Our Impact

 

Every year in the UK approximately 2,400 children up to and including the age of eighteen are diagnosed with cancer.

It is now known that physical activity is safe, beneficial and recommended for all children and adolescents affected by cancer. It is recognised as one of the most effective ways of improving physical and psychological health and wellbeing for children being treated for cancer and beyond; reducing the impact of some of the side effects of treatment, whilst promoting independence, peer support and self-confidence.

Our lightweight bikes and specially adapted trikes provide a unique way to encourage this much needed exercise and activity. Allowing these children to get outside and get active, as well as having some much needed fun too!

In 2023 we provided 643 bikes to children with cancer and their families. We are extremely pleased to report that:

93% of the children we support advise that having their CFC bike encourages them to spend more time outside.

87% of children report that they spend more time outside with a sibling since having their CFC bike.

86% of children showed an increase in stamina since using their CFC bike.

85% of children report a noted increase in strength since having their CFC bike.

87% of children displayed an increase in confidence since having their CFC bike.

85% of children showed an improvement in mood since having their CFC bike.
