It’s Good 2 Give officially came to life in April 2010. We support young cancer patients and their families in Scotland. We may be tiny but we have huge ambitions. As an organisation,’ It’s Good 2 Give’ is hardworking, energetic and lively.

We support young cancer patients and their families in practical ways. Our goal to open a Retreat for those young cancer patients and their families was realised in May 2017. The Ripple Retreat allows families to use it for a short break together – a purpose-built, restful, safe place. The Retreat is situated on the shores of Loch Venachar in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

On a day-to-day basis, however, It’s Good 2 Give provides support of another kind – anything that can make the lives of those impacted by cancer in any way easier. Whether that’s a parents pack, ironing voucher or nutritional snacks, we’ll try to find a way to make it happen.
