Ellie's Friends – free gifts and treats


We know how hard cancer can be and how tight money can get. That's why we offer free gifts and treats to give you and your family a bit of a lift at a difficult time.

From days out with friends or family to special packages delivered in the post, we do what we can to continue the vision of Ellie Jeffery, who found great comfort in being able to enjoy the normal things so often taken for granted.

Our freebies

Gifts are donated by generous people and businesses and are available to anybody either in active cancer treatment or recovering from cancer treatment within the UK. 

Visit the Ellie's Friends website to see the selection of gifts currently available.

We select a winner at random every month and you can reapply the following month if you didn't get lucky first time. 


How to apply for a gift

It's really easy – all you need to do is follow the registration steps on the Ellie's Friends website.


Donate a gift

If your company would like to give away a gift or treat you can get in touch with us by emailing info@elliesfriends.org

Our current friends include River Island, Nando’s, Give-a-Book and Decca Records.
