Why raise Sponsorship?

This event is aid of the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Cancer Centre , which provides a service that support patients and families by helping them cope with all aspects of the disease from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

The Centre works closely with our clinical staff to ensure that conventional treatments and procedures are fully integrated with a holistic approach that deals with the patient as a whole person, and not just with the disease. 

Your donations will enable the centre to offer:

  • Support which is responsive to the wishes of patients, their families and friends
  • Information which is accurate, up-to-date and relevant to the individual
  • A service which is available at any stage of a patient’s illness
  • Holistic care and free complementary therapy for patients.


£150 sponsorship could help to fund:

  • 15 weeks worth of acupuncture treatment
  • 7 plus weeks' worth of therapy oils
  • 4 complimentary therapy sessions to help ease the symptoms of cancer treatments
