Hi there, on Sunday 10th June I will be walking 20 miles for the Wessex Cancer Trust. I have chosen to do this as this is sadly something that has affected my family and family friends. The money raised goes towards helping those with cancer and those who are supporting loved ones with cancer.

Thank you for looking at my page and any donations are greatly appreciated

Examples of how the money can help:
£25 could provide one yoga session to help improve well-being and pain management.
£50 could provide a free counselling session to help someone deal with the emotional impact of cancer
£100 could provide a play therapy session for a child affected by a cancer diagnosis
£250 could provide a full day of services in one of our support centres.

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.
