I want to know more

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.

Festival of Christmas Trees

We are delighted to once again be a chosen charity of the Festival of Christmas trees at Tapton Masonic Lodge.

Cavendish Cancer Care have once again been adopted by Wentworth Lodge who will be our partner for this years festival.

Kurt’s story

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.

Holly’s story

With the support that Cavendish have given me, I now feel like I can give some more support out myself. I’m going to come across loss, grief and bereavement. Now I’ve seen both sides to grief and I can use my experience to help others.
Keep on with all the great work you are doing

Dallas’s story

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.

Wakefield Marathon & Half Marathon

The Wakefield Marathon is taking place over a new course in 2015, offering a flatter and less intense alternative to the Huddersfield Marathon which takes place in April.

There are half marathon and ‘Your Nuts Family Fun Run’ options, complete with goody bags and activities to keep all the family happy on the day.  Bring the family along, tackle a personal challenge and raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time.

Louise’s story

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.
