Today Hope for Tomorrow launched their new campaign ‘Pay for a Day' at Cheltenham Hospital Oncology Centre.


Each Mobile Cancer Care Unit costs the charity £198 per day to keep on the road and the charity are seeking support from Gloucestershire businesses to help keep the wheels turning. In 2018 over 14,000 treatments were administered across their fleet.

Fundraising Manager Nikki Budding said"We are thrilled to have had such a great response from the local businesses here today who have kindly signed up to our Pay for a Day campaign by donating £198.  Their support is a fantastic way to start this campaign and we would love to hear from any other businesses who would be interested in helping us to keep the wheels turning. Our mobile cancer care unit means so much to local cancer patients as it enables themto save time by having their cancer care closer to home, saving them time and energy to be with the people that mean the most."

About Hope for Tomorrow


Hope for Tomorrow is a dedicated charity, bringing cancer care closer to patients' homes via our Mobile Cancer Care Units (MCCUs).

Fighting cancer is one of the hardest things any one will ever have to do, even without the additional stress of spending hours travelling long distances to hospitals to receive treatment. This is why Hope for Tomorrow brings cancer care closer to patient's homes, to ease the strains of travel and to give them more time with their loved ones.


We work in a unique partnership with the NHS helping to ease capacity challenges at hospital trusts. We now have 10 MCCUs operational in Gloucestershire, Somerset, South Wiltshire, East Kent, Lincolnshire, Cornwall, West Suffolk, East Essex, London/ Surrey and West Yorkshire, with two reserve MCCUs in place to ensure continuity of service during the maintenance schedule. We also provide a Nurses Support Vehicle with each MCCU, which allows the nursing team to travel to and from the daily treatment locations.

The charity won a Queen's Award for Enterprise - Innovation, in 2016. The Award is the UK's highest accolade for business success, and was made in recognition of our achievements since the Founder, Christine Mills MBE, set up Hope for Tomorrow in 2003.  

Our Gloucestershire Mobile Cancer Care Unit ‘Helen' visits Tewkesbury, Stroud, Cirencester and Cinderford on a weekly basis.
