Cavendish Cancer Care is a charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer. No one should face cancer alone, so we provide emotional support through counselling and complementary therapies. Our services are provided free of charge and are funded through donations.
The theme of the event is ‘East and West’ and will incorporate artworks in relation to the differences in culture between these two diverse areas. The exhibition will feature work from James Bowie to exhibit a collection of his works. Additionally, this night will include raffles, merchandise for purchasing, a live-performance by Alex Chow and other various activities. With 100% of profits going to Cavendish Cancer Care.
So, are you feeling excited?

This is Lynn. She used to work at Cavendish as Head of Therapy until her retirement but Cavendish is always close to her heart. Lynn has just completed a year long challenge walking 25 miles every month for our 25th anniversary year. That’s a whopping 300 miles or the equivalent of walking to Cardiff and back! She has raised a superb £987.Read more
South Yorkshire based solicitors Wosskow Brown have raised £2,240 for Sheffield based Cavendish Cancer Care.
Wosskow Brown raised this amount of money through many different ways; including: a firework display at Wentworth Woodhouse, a Charity Sports Quiz Night at Genting Casino and even two ‘Free Will Months’, in which Wosskow Brown provided a basic Will at a donation price where all proceeds went towards the charity.Read more
Cavendish Cancer Care allow you to know that it is ok to feel what you feel without shame or fear of guilt and therefore you get to deal with your emotions and find your own way back to who you were. Or even some place better! I cannot praise their services enough.
The thing about talking to Cavendish is that it gives you a chance to talk about the embarrassing cancers - bowel, bladder and prostate - you can talk about the nitty gritty you don't want to talk about it with people you know. That's a big relief.
People come in, broken inside, but Cavendish know how to put them back together. The primary benefit was that it refocused me. I learnt how to vent the anger that was all bottled up. I mean, 7 weeks of radiotherapy and chemo and it's got to come out. It's essential.
I didn't realise that art therapy is actually quite in-depth psychotherapy. You create images using any kind of media - pictures or clay - and use it to reflect on what it means to you in words, memories or images. This finally gave me a way to vocalise what was inside.
