Our storytelling project works with children with all forms of cancer,distracting them from the reality of their treatment and taking them into a world of pure imagination. It began in 2015 at the Paediatric Oncology wards at the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle, motivated in part by a desire to invest more in our own region. We now run projects throughout the UK, the majority of which are supported by BBC Children in Need.
