Bullet PR are delighted to announce we are now the retained PR agency for Children with Cancer UK.

Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against all forms of childhood cancer.  The charity funds life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer and works to protect young lives through essential welfare and campaigning programmes.

Cancer is the biggest child-killer disease in the UK.  3,600 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every year and the incidence has been on the increase.  There are more than 50 types of childhood cancer. Thanks to research funded by Children with Cancer UK survival rates for the most common form of childhood cancer, leukaemia, have increased dramatically over the past 50 years, but for some rare types of cancer survival rates remain at zero.

The team at Bullet are very much looking forward to working with the charity.
