Thanks to our members and the businesses that offer their deals to you, we are able to donate 20% of our profits to a local charity close to our hearts- CancerCare.
CancerCare is a unique local charity, dedicated to helping families affected by the impact of cancer living in North Lancashire and South Lakeland.
More of us than ever before will be affected by cancer at some point in our lives, and whilst a cancer diagnosis is not always life-ending, it’s nearly always life-changing, for everyone involved. Whether someone has a diagnosis, is the relative or friend of someone who has, or, has lost someone they care about to the disease, CancerCare exists to support everyone in our community who needs us.
With two centres in Lancaster(Slynedales on Slyne Road) and Kendal (The Lakes Centre on Blackhall Road), CancerCare provide a wide range of professional support services such as counselling, support groups, and complementary therapies, completely free of charge, available to all. Founded by a local G.P in 1983, the charity has helped over 25,000 local people across North Lancashire & South Lakeland to date, and is currently supported by 20 staff, 32 therapists and over 120 volunteers. It costs £1million to provide the charity’s range of free services in the community every year, raised almost entirely through fundraising and donations.
