Tom's Gift

Tom’s Gift is a special present sent to children aged 0 to 16 who require treatment for cancer. This special present includes a mystery item and a £30 Debenhams gift voucher for them to spend in-store or online on anything they will find fun and enjoyable.

Created by The Tom Grahame Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support, it is a small way to celebrate the amazing courage and resilience of so many children.
