  • Where your money goes

    As a charity, we depend on donations like yours to improve the quality of life for people living with cancer and their families.

    Your support means that we can provide emotional support through counselling and complementary therapies to 1,900 cancer patients, their families and their children every year.

    We only receive a small amount of funding from the NHS – enough to keep our doors open for around two weeks. That means that, for the rest of the year, we rely on the generosity of donors and supporters to keep the centre open for the next person who needs us. You can be assured that 100% of all donations goes directly to keeping the charity running, meaning we can continue to support people in our community.

    In 2019 it cost over £900,000 to run our charity. Here’s how it was divided up:

    · Charitable activities 79%

    · Fundraising 18%

    · Other 3%

    “When I founded Cavendish Cancer Care some 25 years ago, I never imagined that we would become so embedded into the cancer support system in our region. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we can support the next 20,000 families through our doors at a time when they need us most.”
