In my own small way, together with my smashing friend Lisa and all the other participants I want to support this local charity. Advertising costs and sadly smaller charities like The Wessex Cancer Trust don't have the resources to market their service. Unfortunately this can mean that not all those who could benefit will be aware of the support available. My hope is that in doing this walk it will raise some much needed funds and raise awareness of this little known charity.

Ps It's 20 miles and a 7am start!

Wessex Cancer Trust believe that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.

Community is at the heart of Wessex Cancer Trust – we put services in local communities so people affected by cancer have somewhere to go at a time when they most need support.


A diagnosis can have a huge impact on the entire family. That’s why we’re committed to providing free support to anyone affected by cancer for as long as they need us. Our six cancer support centres are safe places for people to receive the emotional, practical and physical support they need.


From coffee mornings, to craft groups and wellness classes, people come together to meet people who understand what they are going through. We’re proud that our centres are a safe community for anyone affected by cancer.
