Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust

Giving Trees

Personalise a leaf to say thank you, remember a loved one or mark a milestone to help transform the lives of patients with cancer at Addenbrooke’s. 

The Giving Tree is a beautiful, handcrafted sculpture capturing your special memories while supporting future patient care. Located in the waiting area of the oncology department, it can be enjoyed by patients, families, staff and volunteers.

You might like to dedicate a leaf to:
  • Say thank you for the care you’ve received
  • Remember a loved one
  • Mark an important milestone such as receiving the ‘all clear’ or being five years’ cancer-free.

You choose the special message to be engraved on your leaf - and pick the colour too - copper, silver or gold.

You can set up a monthly donation and your leaf will remain on the tree for as long as you want. Or you can make a one-off donation for your leaf to be on the tree for one year. We will place your leaf on the tree.

You are welcome to visit as often as you like to see your leaf. After the first year, you can either renew your leaf or we will return it to you as a keepsake. 

All the funds raised by the Giving Tree will help transform the lives of people with cancer.
