Our supporters

Together with our partner TK Maxx, we're very proud of our Star Awards. Some of the world's biggest stars from sport, TV and music have teamed up to support the Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People Star Awards and sign the certificates which will be sent to all the youngsters who receive an award.

TK Maxx supporting Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People

TK Maxx generously sponsors our Star Awards campaign, recognising the strength of children and young people across the UK who have been diagnosed with cancer.

TK Maxx has been supporting Cancer Research UK since 2004, and is the biggest corporate supporter of research into children’s cancers for the charity.

Since the partnership began, TK Maxx has raised £32 million through stock and cash donations. Of that total, £28 million contributes to pioneering research into new, better and kinder treatments for children and young people with cancer, with a further £4 million supporting general cancer research.

Tom Bourton, from Cancer Research UK, said: "We are thrilled that TK Maxx is continuing to support the Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People Star Awards. TK Maxx generously donates a £50 TK Maxx voucher to every star nominated, as well as supporting the annual Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People Star Awards Party, where stars and their families are invited to a special day out with some very special guests. The award raises the spirits of children and their siblings during what can be a very difficult time for the whole family. We are extremely grateful to TK Maxx for their ongoing generosity and support for our pioneering research into beating children's cancers sooner."
