    Westfield Health’s incredibly generous donation of £50,000 will enable Cavendish Cancer Care to continue to develop their Family and Young People’s Service (YPS). For 18 years, Cavendish has been providing therapy for young people affected by cancer, whether themselves or somebody in the family has been diagnosed, including after bereavement.

    “It was wonderful to join Westfield for their Centenary celebrations,” said Executive Director Emma Draper. “There was such a fantastic atmosphere of philanthropy – the organisation are making a massive impact across the region with their charitable giving. Their donation to Cavendish will allow us to support even more families living with cancer across the region.”

    Thanks to Westfield Health, Cavendish Cancer Care can ensure children and families are given the time, space and support they need to come to terms with incredibly difficult challenges.
