Charity description

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

Cancer and Leukaemia in Children Orientated (CALICO) is a charitable organisation, based in Aberdeen, which has been in existence since January 1983 serving the Grampian Region and the Northern Isles.

Please donate to support our cause.

The first priority of CALICO is to alleviate any financial hardship that may be experienced by a family of a child suffering from cancer or leukaemia.    Financial stress commonly arises, as one parent will inevitably give up their employment to nurse the child, thus putting a strain on the domestic budget together with incurring additional expenses such as heating, telephone, travel and accommodation.
Essential equipment is provided by CALICO for the Oncology Ward at Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and CALICO also provides toys, games etc. for the outpatients department.   Requests from other relevant departments are also considered and from time to time, a donation is made to the local Leukaemia Research Fund.
CALICO is a charity which raises funds locally and uses these funds locally.  

Charity No: SCO05795
