The Duncan & Toplis Foundation are delighted to be supporting Sue Young Cancer Support in Leicestershire and Rutland with grant funding.
The Charity works with anyone affected by cancer, whether that be the patient or a loved one, through counselling, complementary therapy, wellbeing classes, and support groups. Each service user is assessed and allocated services according to their need of support and are provided free of charge.
Speaking about the difference to the donation will make to the charity, Courtney Nangle, Charity Manager, said:
“As all of our services provided by Sue Young Cancer Support are free of charge to our beneficiaries, the funding from the Duncan & Toplis Foundation has been specifically earmarked for this project, meaning we can provide more specialist support to more people.
“The funding will allow us to run a new, esoteric five-week course for those diagnosed with cancer. In the region of 50 people will benefit from this course in 2023, and will help the beneficiary manage their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing following a diagnosis and help them explore home practice of compassionate self-care.
Trustee of the Duncan & Toplis Foundation Niall Kingsley said:
“Undoubtedly the services that Sue Young Cancer Support provide are of vital importance to cancer sufferers in our regions. We are so pleased to know that our grant will directly fund this course, and complements the practical and emotional support that the charity already offers. We hope it’s a great success.”
