Our son Mark passed away when he was 31 and loved fast cars, fast motorbikes and fast women. He faced many health challenges from the age of 9. When he was feeling well he was a lunatic and tremendous fun and we are doing this in memory of him. He'd definitely laugh his socks off at us - and meet us with an ice-cream.

We will be walking, or maybe even crawling, 10 miles in the New Forest on June 9th.


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.
