About

This is the official fundraising page for the Mayor's Charity Appeal 2022/23 in support of The Pink Place, incorporating The Blue Space for Men

Our charity provides FREE wellbeing services, complementary therapies, counselling, mindfulness sessions and support to adults affected by cancer, living in our community, from initial diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond

Sadly, there are no NHS funds available for the holistic and wellbeing element of a cancer patient’s treatment. It’s well documented that this can form an integral part of their recovery, treating the whole person and not just the disease itself. Our charity aims to fill this gap and combat the impact on the mental health, anxiety, and isolation of those facing additional challenges due to a cancer diagnosis

Fact: 1 in 2 people will get cancer. People like Helen, Rob and Lesley who said-

Helen - “The charity has literally been a lifeline, shocked from my diagnosis, my head felt like it was going to explode but the support was amazing. Reflexology and mindfulness helped calm my mind and my body”

Rob - “I’m indebted to you. I don’t know what would have happened to my mental health without you being there for me, especially when dark thoughts creep in”

Lesley - “I wanted to say that the charity has been a life saver to me during this awful time of my life and has given me something to focus on rather than my cancer. Being able to talk to others in the same situation and hear how they are coping and sharing experiences has been so beneficial and has filled me with so much positivity. To have a chat over a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake and with the wonderful addition of support, friendship and laughter has helped me so much”

Your support TODAY will ensure our charity is here TOMORROW
