The Joshua Tree & Effortless Skin

The Joshua Tree

We are very excited and proud to be partnering with The Joshua Tree, a local Cheshire-based charity dedicated to supporting families in the North West affected by childhood cancer.

When it came to choosing a local charity to be our Charity of the Year, we couldn't think of anyone better or more deserving than The Joshua Tree. They aim to provide support that is tailored to each and every family's needs, both during and after treatment, and this support is for the whole family, including the child having the treatment, their parents or carers, brothers and sisters, grandparents, friends and the wider family.

This support can take many forms from Therapeutic support including 1-2-1 counselling, play therapy, carer breaks and support groups, to Practical support including helping families get to medical or school appointments. They also host family activity events and monthly Saturday Sessions; Health and Fitness Sessions, particularly for young people post-treatment, giving them back their body confidence and self-esteem, and Tutoring, to ensure that a child doesn’t suffer as a result of schooling missed through isolation of cancer treatment.

The Joshua Tree currently provide these services free of charge for over 100 families across the North West and relies upon its band of local volunteers and charity partners to keep it going.

We are delighted that Effortless Skin has elected to support The Joshua Tree. The Joshua Tree is a small charity and currently has nine part-time members of staff delivering both a family support service and the fundraising and awareness side of the charity. It costs The Joshua Tree £30,000 a year to support our families with access to these support sessions - and we do this through fundraising from our amazing community supporters and corporate partners like Effortless Skin. Your donation really will make a difference to our families and ensure that we are there when they need us, for as long as they need us. Thank you!
