Me and Ebonie would like to challenge ourselves for a worthwhile and meaningful cause this summer.

Ebonie sadly lost two of her grandparents to cancer in the past years. So it is with heart that we would like to help to raise funds, to go towards financing a Cancer support centre on the Isle of Wight, to support those with cancer and their families.

Being on an island can force people to travel to reach services, during hard and challenging times.

Having a local centre could create a lot of support and relief to people who would otherwise need to travel and spend to reach these services elsewhere.

We will be completing a 3k course, over ten obstacles and 3 colour clouds, aiming to raise £50 for this worthwhile cause. Any help and support towards our target is very much appreciated. Every £1 helps.

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.
