We are delighted to have Wessex Cancer Trust join us as Lead Charity Partner for the 2020 May Day Tri in Winchester!

"Every year around 23,000 people within the Wessex region are diagnosed with cancer. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family. That’s why we’re committed to providing free support for anyone affected by cancer.

As a charity we believe that everyone living with cancer should have a local place to go, to get the support they need, when they need it. We rely on voluntary donations and fundraising events like the Winchester Triathlon to fund our services.

Our five Cancer Support Centres are safe places for people to receive the emotional, practical and physical support they need. On arrival clients are welcomed by our amazing volunteer befrienders who are equipped to provide information, support and a listening ear. A team of specialist counsellors are on hand to help deal with the emotional impact of cancer, and complementary therapies aim to improve wellbeing, help with pain management and increase self-confidence. Our closest Centre to Winchester is in Chandlers Ford, alongside our Head Office."
