Best wishes for the festive season

Published on: 21 December 2023

Thank you for your support in 2023.

Season's greetings

We want to thank you for your support during what has been an incredible and busy year for Lymphoma Action. Together, we have been able to do even more for people affected by lymphoma and here are just a few highlights.

We launched a whole new suite of online support meetings. Our What is lymphoma? animation was nominated as a finalist in the 2023 Smiley Charity Film Awards. A few months later, our latest animation, Lymphoma Symptoms was released and has been submitted for next year’s Smiley Charity Film Awards (please do vote for our animation to help us reach the finals if you haven’t done so already!).

Def Leppard guitarist Viv Campbell, who recorded one of six new Lymphoma Voices podcast episodes, was one of the many people who helped add to our range of online resources. Our closed Facebook support group achieved an important milestone too by reaching 4000 members who support each other through the ups and the downs of lymphoma!

Our volunteers are at the heart of our Charity. Their time, expertise and dedication are integral to the delivery of our services and supporting people affected by lymphoma. 2023 also saw us receive the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) accreditation – the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management as we continue with our commitment to good volunteering experiences.

This year’s Blood Cancer Awareness Month was our biggest ever, with over £85,000 raised to support our work and over 450 supporters raising awareness for us as part of our Let’s talk lymphoma campaign.  2023 also saw eight of our supporters take on the challenge of a lifetime with an epic trek across the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, and over 300 supporters took part in our flagship Bridges of London walk to raise funds and awareness about lymphoma. To everyone who has supported our work this year, we wish to say a heartfelt thank you.

A special thanks also goes to those of you who have shared your personal stories with us this year whether on our website, in the media or in our Lymphoma Matters magazine as we know how valuable they are as a source of support for people who have received a lymphoma diagnosis. In whatever way you’re involved in our lymphoma community, it’s your support that means no one has to face lymphoma alone.

From the whole team here at Lymphoma Action, we want to send you our warmest wishes for the festive season and the New Year.
