County childhood cancer charity calls on Darren to join trustees

Evesham Editorial 3rd Apr, 2023   0

COUNTY business owner Darren Wilkins has been unveiled as a new trustee of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust (GKCCT).

Having supported the charity since Darren’s family business City Signs, celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2020, his dedication to the GKCCT team and their mission to support the local community has been unwavering.

Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust is a small charity with a big personality, with plans for growth to support to even more families within the local community and across the UK.

Worcester-based City Signs is an award-winning, second-generation county business founded in 1960 and a leading provider of business signage and displays,

“It’s a charity which is very close to my heart, as my sister Debbie, the owner of Happy Steps in Worcester taught Grace to dance,” he said.

“Since I’ve started supporting GKCCT through fund-raising and events, I’ve seen first-hand what an amazing charity it is and the invaluable support they give families in their darkest hour when given a cancer diagnosis”.




“I’m looking forward to bringing my experience and expertise as a business owner to support the ethos of GKCCT ‘Because the children of today all deserve a tomorrow’.

“Many thanks to Jen Kelly and the board of trustees for given me this unique opportunity,” he added.


Dr Jen Kelly, CEO of the Grace Kelly Trust said the charity’s champions were delighted to welcome Darren on board.

“As a hugely respected local businessman, Darren and his whole family have supported our charity in so many ways making it even more special,” she said.

“From volunteering to collect Christmas trees, printing signs and sponsoring events to volunteering his wife to do the Worcester run for us!”

“As a charity, we have so many local families that rely on us for support. With our trustees, the charity simply cannot run. Becoming a trustee of the charity is a purely voluntary role and we are so grateful to him for giving up his valuable time to share his business expertise and guidance.

The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust is a national charity working to help children and young people affected by cancer.

Focused on early diagnosis, raising awareness, supporting families and research, it’s a charity committed to helping both cancer sufferers and their families.
