Flybe's festive appeal for kids with cancer

Passengers urged to help fund soar

Flybe is encouraging passengers to dig deep over Christmas to help young people with cancer.

The airline is running a month-long donation drive onboard its flights, in aid of Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens.

Now in its eighth year, Flybe staff and customers have raised more than £0.5 million for the charity.

Almost 2,000 young children and 2,400 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year in Britain - more of them now beat the disease than ever.

Kids & Teens director Claire Rowney said: "there is still more to be done to bring forward the day that every child survives cancer", and added that the charity is very thankful for Flybe's support.
