​It's Good 2 Give are our Official Charity Partner.

About the Charity

​It’s Good 2 Give was founded on 20 April 2010 by Ian and Lynne McNicoll OBE.

​It’s Good 2 Give is committed to supporting the physical and mental well-being of young cancer patients and their families in Scotland.

They offer a wide range of support to both patients and hospitals. That includes practical support such as parent packs, ad hoc support for hospitals, mental health support for patients, and much more.

​It’s Good 2 Give works in partnership with hospitals and patient organisations to deliver the assistance that young patients and their families need. In 2021, It’s Good 2 Give proudly started funding four psychologist posts in Edinburgh and Glasgow’s children’s oncology wards. The charity recognises the importance of mental well-being in the patient journey.

As well as offering day-to-day support to those impacted by cancer they created and run The Ripple Retreat—a purpose-built, restful place on the shores of Loch Venachar. It provides a peaceful escape and opportunity to relax for patients and families during this difficult time, offering time away from doctors, procedures, and hospitals, in a safe and calming environment and at no cost to the families. You can find out more about the Ripple Retreat here.
