My Dad lost his battle to cancer, the carers that helped him in his last days were absolutely amazing. I am honoured to be a part of this fundraising effort to help raise the money to provide a cancer unit on the island.
Cancer is such a horrible disease, it can affect anyone of us at any point in our lives.
Please help me raise this money for each and every one of us living on our amazing island, anything you can spare would be amazing and I would be eternally grateful.
I will be completing this race in memory of my Dad.

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.
