How does it work?

The Big Summer BBQ is here and it’s time to enjoy well-overdue time in the company of our loved-ones with great food and drink!

Invite your family, friends, neighbours or colleagues round to show off your BBQ skills and raise vital funds for Cure Leukaemia at the same time!

All funds raised through the Big Summer BBQ will go to blood cancer charity Cure Leukaemia and will be invested in the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) a network of specialist research nurses in 12 of the UK’s biggest cities which enable patients from a catchment area of over 20 million people access to potentially life-saving treatments through blood cancer clinical trials.

The idea is simple…
