Donate and you shall receive… a PINK Hi Viz VEST!
That was Mr McNally’s challenge to the gang here at EWT. No sooner had the words (with a slightly South African twang) left his mouth but this lot were thrusting £10 notes into his hands to give to CancerWise.
Ian’s way of raising money is typically creative and effective!
He hope’s it has a positive impact on staff and customers too, helping to raise awareness of CancerWise, a drop-in centre in nearby Chichester offering free support for people living with cancer. Ian has close ties with the centre and we’re glad he enlisted the rest of us to help.
Here’s a bit about the people at CancerWise and the kind of support they give….
CancerWise is a registered charity based in Chichester, West Sussex. Our centre in Basin Road has a warm, relaxed and welcoming feel, with staff and volunteers ready to support you the minute you walk through our door.
The charity offers support and information to cancer patients, their families and carers in the West Sussex and East Hampshire area. The service we offer is one of enablement and empowerment in a caring and compassionate environment.
Whether accessing counselling, complementary therapies or emotional care, the drop-in centre provides space to support the mind, body, spirit and emotional health through and beyond cancer.
CancerWise believes that healthy nutrition and lifestyle, together with a wide range of complementary care, contributes towards a better quality of life for the individual, whilst also supporting medical treatments provided by hospitals and doctors. We aim to contribute to the wellbeing of our clients, as they progress through their treatment.
The drop-in centre provides a wide range of free services including:
library and information centre
