Yorkshire Cancer Centre

From the proceeds of Beyond Cancer Annual Fundraising Ball in May 2014, £2,500 was donated The Yorkshire Cancer Centre, where it was greatly welcomed and will be used to purchase three  rise-recliner chairs for the Oncology Day Unit from their Wish List. These comfortable chairs are continually in use for patients receiving chemotherapy in the Unit.

St Gemma's Hospice

“Thank you very much for your donation of £1,500. Through your gift, you are helping us to provide the best possible care and quality of life for local people with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.  The services provided by St Gemma’s Hospice are free of charge to patients, families and carers but are not free to provide.  

Every penny we receive is much needed and we are so very grateful.  In fact, the money you donated is already being put to good use, helping us to reach out to another local person in need of our expert care. This could be provided in the Hospice building or in the patient’s own home.”

Robert Ogden Centre

“Thank you for the wonderful donation of £600 raised at your Annual Charity Ball.  As you are aware, all donations to the Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre are used to improve and develop services for cancer patients and their families.   Thank you, once again, for your amazing support.  We are always extremely grateful.”

Football Tournament

Stuart Bailey from Wetherby Veterans and Andy Blair from Brazilian Soccer School decided to raise money for charity. Their aim was to organise a football tournament and the winners would take the Cancer Awareness Trophy.  The event on 26 May 2013 was a success, as men of all ages came forward to support the cause.  Four teams, comprising of veterans, ex-professionals and young, up and coming players.   A great day was had by all.  The event raised £400 which was shared between Beyond Cancer Charity and Voices of Cancer.

African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT)

The ACLT has helped to raise awareness and recruit new potential bone marrow donors and blood donors since 1996.  The charity raises awareness that enables potential donors to come forward at ACLT registration drives, which are held regularly across the UK and abroad, and be involved in the process of offering hope to people suffering from leukaemia and blood related cancers.  Beyond Cancer donated £150 towards their campaign for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust.

The money you raised will go towards helping more young people from across Yorkshire fight cancer and have a better quality of life, people like Matt 19 who said, “The facilities at the Teenage Cancer Trust unit were amazing, it was great to know there was always something to do and the staff were amazing, they became like a second family to me” Thank you so much for making a difference to the lives of young people with cancer."

The Yorkshire Haven

The Yorkshire Haven received a donation of £1,000 from Beyond Cancer.  The money is being used to continue providing support to women and men with breast cancer from Yorkshire and beyond, at any point during their experience of the disease.  The Haven aims to provide support and services to help visitors cope with the physical and emotional side effects of breast cancer and it’s treatment.  Since opening in Yorkshire in October 2008, over 900 women and one man have benefited from the Haven programme.  Haven Programme Manager Debra Horsman, thanked Beyond Cancer for their kind donation and said “It is important that awareness is raised of the different issues faced by women and men from ethnic minority communities when it comes to cancer diagnosis”.
