How You've Helped
It’s thanks to your support that we can be at the forefront of cancer treatments: the latest equipment and technologies are essential to providing our patients with the best possible care.
The charity has funded a range of projects to help make this happen, such as bringing in new ways of treating cancer, bringing cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes and breaking boundaries by becoming the first in the UK to offer a number of treatments. We constantly need to fund new ways to provide these things for our patients. With your help, we can keep Clatterbridge as a place that stays in people’s hearts.
We are so grateful to the thousands of dedicated fundraising volunteers, supporters and donors, without whom the projects funded by the charity would not be possible. The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity has been proud to be part of a number of achievements and firsts at Clatterbridge, including
