Charlie’s – For All Those Lives Affected by Cancer
Charlie’s is so special because of all our brilliant team
– director, therapists, helpers.
Charlie’s is so special because of our brilliant team, from our Director, Therapists, Helpers, Trustees, and our team of many helpers around the County. We all play a part in making Charlie’s a supportive place for all.
Without their tireless support and their selfless generosity we wouldn’t be where we are today.
We can be proud of the community we have built, the people we have helped and everything we have achieved together.
Charlie’s Patron Paul Mount
Charlie’s community cancer support and therapy centre is a testament to the vision set out by Jo and her team and the willingness by those being helped by Charlie’s to “give back” by being involved in the massive job of renovating the premises they use and decorating it to make it a warm and welcoming environment. People stopped being cancer victims and became builders, painters, carpenter’s, and tea makers all with the common goal of creating this wonderful space.
I have followed the progress of Charlie’s closely over the last six years, attending some of their events and contributing with my own local fundraising events, and was delighted when Jo invited me to become their Patron in March 2020. The announcement of me becoming Patron was held at the six-year anniversary celebration of Charlie’s and it was wonderful to see the centre full to the brim of those receiving support, supporter’s and volunteers. I expressed my feelings and thanks to Charlie’s, in my acceptance speech, and was a little surprised how emotional I became. Many others in the group also became emotional and it was a real reflection on how much Charlie’s means to so many in so many ways.
Meet our lovely team.
Charlie’s has a great team of volunteers that enable us to operate every day, providing support on many levels. We have a team of Therapists, Meet and Greeters, Helpers, Lunch time Helpers, Events team, and many friends available with a shoulder to lean on.
Without the support of our many volunteers Charlie’s would not be able to operate. We are very grateful to each and everyone for the time they dedicate to helping people.
