When Oli died at the Royal Free hospital in 2005, he was being treated on a ward with much older people, so whilst the care was first class, the environment wasn't ideal. When he died, his Mother, Sarah, and brother, Eddie, did some research, found Teenage Cancer Trust, and decided it would be the perfect charity to support in his name.


I don't think anyone could have predicted that by 2015 over £100,000 would be raised in his name. We actually  think it's more, but part of the 'problem' was that people did so much at different times it became impossible to track effectively. So, ten years on, we decided to set up an official Fund working with Teenage Cancer Trust and a movement of people, businesses & organisations called the Oli Mills Foundation which has seen us continue this work together to great effect - what a journey so far!


The total raised at this point is over £465,000 and we are aiming to raise £1,000,000 (yes, that's one million!). It sounds a lot, but Oli was a special young man, he has some very special friends and family and ultimately, a charity that supports young people with cancer will, unfortunately, continue to be relevant.


All money raised by the Oli Mills Foundation is donated to Teenage Cancer Trust and in continuing to support the great work they do, we make a huge difference to the lives of teenagers and young people (plus their families) who suffer with cancer - we know Oli would be proud to see this grow. There are lots of ways to support, from one off donations, taking on a challenge and raising money via sponsorship or taking part in one of the many events we put on throughout the year.


Please have a look around the site, check us out on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter, and also find out more about our  'Friends of the Foundation'. These businesses support us monthly and we are very proud and excited to have them on board.




Oli loved Cornwall and couldn't wait to get into the sea to surf or body board  - and he wasn't bad at it either!


It felt right to launch the Oli Mills Foundation at Watergate Bay.


Our Facebook page is the place to connect with other supporters, share stories, laugh and cry at pictures and keep up to date with all our latest news.


Look out for more news and offers from our Friends of the Foundation also.


Just £25 could pay for an hour with a Youth Support Coordinator to help a young person with cancer cope with the anxiety and isolation experienced during cancer treatment. It's why the work we do is so important and every donation counts. 

If you're able to donate today, don't forget to add Gift Aid!
