We are raising money to support those who are battling with cancer in their lives.. Whether it’s personally or through a family or friend. All of us in the team have been affected by cancer in some way.. But our team name is inspired by Steve Wright who fights daily with terminal cancer. Although the money won’t go specifically to him, we would like to raise money to help families in this position as our community has been extremely supportive to us, therefore we hope to do the same for others through Wessex cancer trust.

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.
