Angmering-based cancer support charity, Cancer United, has received £750 funding from CALA Homes for its support bus as part of the housebuilder's new Bursary scheme.
Cancer United provides advice and support to locals affected by cancer. Founded in 2012 by Jan Sheward, the charity offers support groups and a specialist cancer exercise facility. The donation from CALA Homes has been used to help maintain Cancer United's support bus, which provides mobile support around the community. The CALA Community Bursary was launched last year and the housebuilder invited local charities, organisations and groups to apply for help to fund projects which make a vital difference in and around their communities.
John Kennedy, Regional Managing Director for CALA Homes South Home Counties, said: "After receiving lots of amazing applications from many worthwhile causes, we faced an incredibly tough decision when selecting the final successful groups for the Community Bursary initiative. Cancer United does wonderful work supporting locals who have been affected by cancer and plays a vital role in helping them get their lives back on track following diagnosis and throughout treatment and recovery. With community firmly placed at the heart of CALA, Cancer United perfectly mirrors this ethos. We are delighted to provide this funding for the charity's support bus and hope that this will help it continue its wonderful work in the community."
Jan Sheward, founder and trustee at Cancer United, said: "We are thrilled to have received this funding as part of CALA's Community Bursary. Cancer United aims to act on behalf of the community by providing a link between clinical care and community support, working on other aspects of care, such as mental health and dementia care. Our support bus specifically supports the elderly affected by cancer, where they can visit us and have a cup of tea and chat. This donation means that we can maintain the bus and continue to reach out to this group in the community." For more information on Cancer United visit www.cancerunited.org.uk.
