The Chartwell Charities
We want oncology families to holiday at "Sophie's Wish" Lodge located on the Isle of Wight, close to a Paediatric Oncology Unit, for respite, fun, freedom and normality – priceless.

About this cause
We provide support to young patients and oncology families undergoing treatment for cancer and leukaemia in South London, North Kent and East Surrey.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We offer over 100 oncology families who are treated in our local communities free use of Sophie's Lodge located on the Isle Wight, plus ferry transport throughout the year. Especially for vulnerable families unable to afford a break due to their deteriorating financial circumstances, this is found to be much-needed respite, with peace of mind that there is a paediatric oncology unit nearby.
