How your donations help!
The Pink Place depends on donations and fundraising events to pay for the services it provides for adults affected by cancer. Due to COVID-19 we have had to cancel our programme of fundraising events, including our 10th Anniversary Celebrations. So although our premises has been closed, we still have rent, utility bills & insurance costs etc.
Our staff are busier than ever adapting to working virtually to support our guests, liaising with NHS staff and now running 9 regular support sessions per week. If you can spare the cost of a coffee, glass of wine or beer & donate to us, we would appreciate it. Monies raised will allow us to continue to keep our guests connected, informed and supported.
