Cancer charity’s volunteer call
Centre offers information and support
A CANCER charity in Yiewsley has taken the opportunity of a special award ceremony to thank its supports and to also ask the community to get involved by volunteering to help cancer sufferers.
The Community Cancer Centre (CCC) in Fairfield Road held a celebration of its dedicated volunteers which was attended by the Mayor of Hillingdon Councillor John Hensley.
CCC currently has around 50 volunteers who help run the charity, which offers information and support to people with cancer and their carers.
The charity is calling on the community to get involved to help run services.
Natalie Etienne, who works with CCC, said: “A sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of the CCC volunteers.
“We have a total of 50 volunteers, some of whom work or are currently unwell so could not be with us at the centre today. You were all greatly missed. The Community Cancer Centre volunteers offer their precious time, dedication and commitment to supporting cancer patients and loved ones.
“They are all so valuable and make up a wonderfully close and strongly connected team. “Well done to you all.” The centre wanted to thank local businesses Peri Peri Chicken, Poppins Cafe, Go Go Pizza, Reena’s and Roses are Red who all donated to help run the award ceremony.
