"Wessex Cancer Trust supports those living with or affected by cancer in the local community. With lockdown measures in force during November, it is an anxious time for anyone living with cancer.  Many have had treatment delayed or are worried about a higher risk of infection and are feeling isolated and vulnerable.

So your support can really make a difference to our local community”
