Find out more about Macmillan in Berkshire
Because of the hard work and generosity of our supporters last year we were able to pay for:
A countywide benefit advice service based at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, with one day a week in Wexham Park Hospital in Slough. This service will be able to advise and help cancer patients and their families with the financial burdens a cancer diagnosis can cause.
And help pay for:
Grants totalling £61,306.00 to help 162 people throughout Berkshire.
The Macmillan CancerLine, which provides free information and support for people living with cancer. This meant that last year 254 people in Berkshire could be helped by our trained advisers.
Around 3,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Berkshire every year. With improvements in treatment meaning more people are living with cancer for longer there is an increasing need for Macmillan's services. Funds raised in Berkshire help provide copies of our Cancer Guide, which provides valuable information about cancer and its treament and care.
They also help provide training and equipment grants for our healthcare professionals. These are only a few examples of our many services, all of which can only be provided with the generosity of our supporters, including the thousands living and working in Berkshire.
