For 40 years Wessex Cancer Trust has supported individuals, families and local communities in their time of need. We now need your help.
This year we’ve seen a 30% rise in the number of people using our Cancer Support Centres. We’ve also seen a considerable drop in charitable income, particularly from gifts in wills, and our charity shops, which has resulted in a serious gap in funding that we’re struggling to bridge.
We must raise £600,000 by 31 January 2020 or we face the harsh reality that our services will no longer be there for you when you need us.
This isn’t a Christmas appeal; it’s not a planned tactical campaign. We’ve never needed to run an emergency appeal of this kind before and, as a charity, we’re heartbroken that we’ve found ourselves in a position where we need to reach out to the local community in this way.
This is our last resort and we really hope you will support us during this difficult time. For more information.
