The £40,000 raised last December will go towards research into cures and kinder treatments for children and young adults with cancer. £40,000 covers the cost of a neuroblastoma clinical trial for a year, which looks to find better treatment for children with high-risk neuroblastoma and give more families more tomorrows, together.
Earlier this year, Flybe introduced donation envelopes which will be available on all flights year round, allowing passengers to donate loose change and foreign currency.
