The Islands first ever Inflatable Rainbow Run on the 5th August 2018, a new 3k run with 10 giant inflatable obstacles and 5 colour clouds! Wessex Cancer Trust has a target of £100k, which will hopefully create a new Cancer Well-being Centre on the Isle of Wight! My work colleagues and I were looking for a team building activity to do together and stumbled across the Inflatable Rainbow Run, we thought this was a fun but more importantly, beneficial team building activity as it also raises money for such a good cause and particularly beneficial for our local area. Please help me raise as much as we can! Thank you!

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

 

Every year around 23,000 people are diagnosed with cancer within the Wessex region. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family.  Wessex Cancer Trust is committed to offering free support for as long as people need it.

 

At all of our cancer centre clients are welcomed by our volunteer befrienders who are equipped to provide information, support and a listening ear. Our team of specialist counsellors are there to help deal with the emotional impact of cancer and our complementary therapies aim to improve wellbeing, help with pain management and increase self-confidence.

 

Wessex Cancer Trust also provide dedicated children's services, singing therapy groups, programmes to help people move on from cancer and a transport scheme which provides over 20,000 passenger journeys each year. 

 

Each year Wessex Cancer Trust are able to reach over 8,000 people in the local community.
