Captains Charity for 2024

Andy & Helen's charity for 2024 is Sue Ryder

Many thanks for your wonderful support for the coming year.
Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness, or loss of a loved one – we’re there when it matters.
Our doctors, nurses and carers give people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can. We provide care to patients and their families locally at Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading. Our hospice, located next to Prospect Park in Reading, holds 15 inpatient beds. Through our inpatient hospice we offer round-the-clock assessment and specialist care to help manage patients’ symptoms. In addition to our inpatient unit, our day services help people living with long term conditions to avoid unnecessary trips to hospital, as well as offering social opportunities alongside others experiencing similar circumstances.

We also offer community services for people who prefer to receive palliative care at home. Our Community Nurse Specialist (CNS) team are based in Reading as well as South Oxfordshire.
Alongside our inpatient and CNS team, we also help people manage their grief when they’ve lost a loved one through our bereavement support, face to face and online, or we offer Grief Kind Spaces which are weekly, in-person drop-in sessions held in the local community and run by trained volunteers. We have 2 based in Berkshire Bereavement support has become so important during current times.

Our website can be accessed from the link below for more detailed information.

For any further support with Fundraising, please do reach out to me.

Best Wishes,

Sue

Sandys Charity for 2022 is Macmillan Cancer Care

Cancer information and support If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer, we're here to help. Find out how we support you and get information about different cancer types.

I am very pleased to have Macmillan Cancer Support as one of our chosen charities for 2022.

Formed in 1911 (as the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer) , Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest charities in the UK and provides specialist heath care, information and financial support for people affected by cancer. It also looks at the social , emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. It is their goal to reach and improve the lives of everyone who now has cancer in the UK.

With the rates of cancer, most of us will be affected by cancer in one way or another in our lifetime. And Macmillan Cancer Support will be there to support us in more ways than one. Not only do they provide support for individuals but also by helping services such as NHS Trusts.

The Frimley Park Chemotherapy unit was the first NHS unit to be ‘adopted’ by Macmillan Cancer Support. All the staff in this unit receive additional training and specialist support over and above that provided by our wonderful NHS. I am one of the lucky ones who was treated in this unit.

Selecting Macmillan Cancer Support as one of our charities for the year was an absolute no brainer for me.
