Will you help us fund a ground-breaking project?
As we grow older, things change and we can’t always live as independently as we’d like to.
A cancer diagnosis can amplify this – affecting people’s finances, relationships and emotions.
You can bake a difference for cancer patients locally…
Throughout the month of May, we invite you to host your very own tea party to support local cancer patients.
Whether you invite friends, family or colleagues, brew up and enjoy some delicious treats to help raise vital funds.
Every penny you raise will help fund two Independent Living Coordinators supporting older people to live well with cancer.
We are proud to work in partnership with Age UK Sheffield, to fund two Independent Living Coordinators, which is the Gold Standard service, for supporting older people to live independent and fulfilling lives.
By joining us for a cuppa and cake you will help deliver many benefits for older people living with cancer including;
- Improving financial circumstances
- Reducing loneliness and isolation
- Improving mental and physical wellbeing
- Enabling timely discharge from hospital to a safe home environment
£5 could help reduce loneliness
£15 could improve mental wellbeing
£25 could enable an older person with cancer to be discharged from hospital into a safe environment
With your help we can support over 350 cancer patients and help address some of the difficulties doctors and nurses alone can’t treat.
Once you have registered, we will be in touch to send you a special Time for Tea fundraising pack with lots of materials, hints and tips to help you raise as much as possible at your tea party!
“What needed to be done to overcome my difficulties was akin to climbing Everest to me and I would not have been able to do this by myself. The Independent Living Coordinator offered suggestions that were practical and helped me to see what I wanted and needed – the support I have had has made a phenomenal difference.”
