Making the Splash for Caring Cancer Trust

On 11 August, 9 children recovering from cancer and Charity Treasurer Don Haver who is blind shot down the rapids of the River Dranse in the French Alps to raise money for the Caring Cancer Trust.

The first ever Alpine Adventure White Water Raft Run to be undertaken by children, helped to raise donations for other children recovering from cancer to be sent on an Alpine Healing Holiday of Adventure.

76 year old Don Haver and the children aged between 12 and 14 years old shot down 5 kilometres of grade 3 and 4 rapids, with a 200 metre drop to raise money for children with cancer.

The Caring Cancer Trust gives hands-on support for Children with Cancer and their parents, providing in-patient amenities and where necessary, financial aid with the travel costs for parents.

The charity provide special recuperative Alpine and UK Healing Holidays of Adventure for children recovering from cancer, helping them to regain their self-confidence and re-ignite their passion for life after the trauma of their illness and lengthy treatment.
