    Help us be there for those who need us

    Cavendish Cancer Care is funded almost entirely by the generosity of the local public. We are proud to work in an integrated way with our NHS partners to help support patients and their families, but we are not an NHS organisation. We are a local, independent charity, largely reliant on fundraising and donations to keep our doors open.

    We could not provide essential support for thousands of people affected by cancer without the generous support of the wider community. Our supporters organise and attend events, take on challenges, give one off or regular donations, run hundreds of miles, remember us in their Wills, pack countless bags and much more to ensure no-one has to face cancer alone. It’s thanks to people like you who mean we can continue to support these families but also grow, develop and reach new people who need our support.
