THE voice of the com­mu­nity has spo­ken and a care cen­tre has been awarded a £3,000 grant from Lloyds Bank to con­tinue its good work.

The Com­mu­nity Can­cer Cen­tre, in West Dray­ton, was ear­marked for the wind­fall in the Lloyds Bank Com­mu­nity Fund 2014 fol­low­ing a pub­lic vote.

The cen­tre, in Fair­field Road, pro­vides support for can­cer pa­tients, their car­ers and any­one who is af­fected by can­cer, in­clud­ing be­friend­ing support, com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies such as re­flex­ol­ogy, mas­sage and yoga, as well as coun­selling, work­shops and so­cial groups.

Cen­tre man­ager Bren Fisher said: “The award will make such a dif­fer­ence, by en­abling en­hance­ment of the ex­ist­ing and new ser­vices we pro­vide, which will make an in­cred­i­ble dif­fer­ence in im­prov­ing the qual­ity of life and well­be­ing for those af­fected by can­cer.”
