The Appeal to date has raised £3million for children’s and cancer charities nationwide. Through this event and continued funding and encouragement from supporters worldwide they are one step closer to the new fundraising target of £5million.

The Charity approached the York based communications rental specialist to support them with their communication requirements for the trip from Leeds to Istanbul. Cellhire will be providing mobile phones to the charity with a special European SIM card for travel throughout Europe. The solution will save the team on average 40% compared to International Traveller Service rates and incoming calls are free.
