What We Do

A better life for people living with and beyond cancer


Weston Park Cancer Charity raises around £2million each year to improve the lives of people living with cancer. Weston Park Hospital is the region’s only specialist cancer hospital, providing care for thousands of patients across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire.


Through the dedicated and tireless efforts of our local community, corporate partners, donors and volunteers, the charity has raised over £22million, since beginning in 1994, to improve the lives of those fighting cancer.


The challenge ahead


One in two people born since the 1960s will develop cancer in their lifetime. That’s one in two. Chances are we all know of someone who has had their life turned upside down by cancer, and whatever the outcome, expert care and support is needed to help rebuild the lives of patients and their families.


With improved diagnosis and survival rates, the number of patients needing treatment and ongoing care is increasing year on year.


We are here to help meet this challenge through:


  • the funding of vital cancer research that takes place locally
  • providing support to ensure patients and families manage their illness effectively
  • enabling local people to access the very best cancer care services
