What We Do

Climb for Kenzie

Seven years ago, Rebecca lost her mum to leukaemia. Kenzie’s Gift helped her by providing 1-to-1 therapy to support her through this incredibly difficult time.

Now, Rebecca’s giving back by organising a fundraiser for us. A keen rock climber, she’s organised a special casual climbing event on Saturday 5th September. With spot prizes, raffles and delicious food stalls, it promises to be a brilliant day out!
