Please note that the Centre will be closed from 31st July until 29th August 2017.

ANNOUNCEMENT: 3rd July 2017

I am pleased to announce that Pat Whittle has been appointed as Deputy Manager of the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre, on an interim basis, for an initial period of six months commencing on Monday 10th July 2017.

Pat will provide support to Azra in her operational tasks while Kathy is away. This will give Azra more time to focus on improving what we do and developing the Centre as well as providing much needed cover for holidays and sickness.

Pat has been a volunteer at the Centre for several years and knows it well. She will, I’m sure, be able to put her experience to good use in her new role.

Welcome Pat!

Ted Sage for the Trustees






An enormous THANK YOU to Jacquie McBride and her team for organising this magnificent event, to everyone who took part and to all who supported us.

£13,000 raised and rising! We’ll let you know the final amount raised as soon as we know it.



Many of you will know that the Centre was featured on Radio Cambridgeshire last Thursday lunchtime. Janet Hickman and members Amanda Norton and Harry Gelsthorpe joined Jeremy Sallis on his Lunchtime Live show to talk about the work of the Centre. Here’s the link if you’d like to listen to the interview on BBC iPlayer Radio. You’ll find the start of our bit just a little after 20 minutes into the recording. Well done Amanda, Harry and Jane!
