professionals, welfare benefits and financial advice, complementary therapies, a wig salon, nutritional advice, support groups, counselling and access to many friendly faces who can help share the load. A service like this, within our community, will help to ensure that nobody in Sussex faces cancer alone. No one should face cancer alone, so it’s imperative we make local people aware of the support Macmillan is offering in Sussex. Macmillan Cancer Support is a large national charity but it is run on a local level with teams dedicated to assessing the needs of people affected by cancer in each county. Sussex is in desperate need of this new support and information centre. The difference it will make to those affected by cancer in Sussex will be immeasurable. We are keen to help everybody in the community understand what we’re doing, and why, so that we can come together and reach our fundraising target of £3.7m. Cancer affects us all and we can all help. If you would like to get involved either as an individual, a group or through a company charity partnership, please get in touch with me directly and make a contribution to the care of those affected by cancer in your community.
