#Next25 – www.next25.co.uk
September 19, 2016
For the last 25 years, Cavendish Cancer Care has been supporting local families living with cancer.
We have been based in our Centre on Wilkinson Street since 1997. Our clients tell us it feels like home – a safe place that acts as a place of sanctuary, essential to them in making the best of whatever situation they are facing.

Our challenge is to ensure we have sufficient funding in place to create the best possible environment for our clients.
We need to provide a setting that fulfils all health and safety requirements for vulnerable clients, allowing us to renew worn therapeutic equipment, while also providing easy access for all and at the same time offering a welcoming homely and therapeutic setting.
However, in our anniversary year, our current rented premises are no longer fit for purpose. It would require extensive work to bring it into good repair and it would still not meet the needs or provide the environment our clients deserve – one that is accessible to all who might need our support.
Fortunately, we have been offered an alternative building, just up the road from our current base. It retains all that is good about the existing building while also offering the potential to offer an enhanced therapeutic environment to all, regardless of their needs.
In addition to a welcoming reception area and well-equipped treatment areas, we will also have the opportunity to create a communal therapy area, providing a vital addition to the support currently available to our clients.
The Church Burgesses Trust has generously agreed to renovate the building to meet our basic requirements and is making a significant investment on our behalf in order to do this. But, we still need your help.
