A special mention to those we have lost:
In 2023, our Little Lifts Community said goodbye to some incredible women and so we want to take a moment to acknowledge their kind support and love for our community. Toni, Fee, Terri and Nicky offered so much to our Little Lifts Community, and they will be forever in our hearts.
The concept of Little Lifts was born from the kindness, care, and consideration of others at a very challenging time for our Founder, Oa. This kindness continues to run through every vein of our work and into our community as we strive to make a real difference to the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
To those of you who have been here from the beginning, and to those of you who have joined us recently, thank you for your kindness, generosity of spirit and for wholeheartedly supporting our work.
Here’s to each one of you from our community who make Little Lifts possible, we cannot thank you enough! Our final thank you goes to every person who gets in touch to tell us about what their Little Lifts Box means to them – it is our favourite kind of mail and motivates us every day. Here’s some we wanted to share:
‘My Little Lifts Box arrived this morning oh my goodness how amazing. I was expecting a little box but it’s a big one filled with absolutely everything I could want for my journey with breast cancer, I feel very supported and loved.’ – Rachel Dann, Clatterbridge Hospital via Little Kindness Fund
‘What a lovely gift, and thanks Nick who packed my Box. A genuine little lift, amongst all the serious faces and concerned family.’ – Jane Melling, Addenbrooke’s Hospital
‘I want to thank you all for my lovely, lovely box of luxury treats. All more expensive than I could buy myself regularly and of course completely out of the blue too. I had a challenging patch of life even before having cancer ‘part one’ (in 2020). Now that it is back and is stage 4, your box lifted me more than I can properly express. I still cry when I think of how much you have cheered me up. Bless you all. – Anonymous, via Make 2nds Count
‘It was lovely to have something nice at a scary and overwhelming time. The gifts were all so thoughtful and made me feel cared for, supported and understood. I was fortunate enough to get both the chemotherapy and radiotherapy Boxes at these stages of my treatment and I really appreciated the specific targeted goodies in each Box. I have recommened you to to other people going through breast cancer treatment. Thank you again for such wonderful support and for making me smile.’ – Lucy Yeomans, Royal Cornwall Hospital, via Little Kindness Fund
We have big ambitions to distribute even more Boxes in 2024 and we cannot wait to start spreading kindness. Thank you for being with us!
