Blake Sweeting and Fiona from Hellen Rollason Cancer charity.
One 2 Three
Patrick Sherring

Blake Sweeting and Fiona from Hellen Rollason Cancer Charity talked about the  charity supporting 1200 people with cancer in Essex. They provide complimentary therapies, counselling and workshops to aid well being for people living with cancer and their families. Blake said that in April they began working with 174 new clients. Fiona told us that seven year ago she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. She talked about how the support provided by the charity was invaluable and has now resulted in her being one of the ambassadors. The charity is named after the late BBC sports broadcaster Helen Rollason who died in 1999 aged 43 years. Fundraising activities are essential to providing funds for the on-going work. ‘Ride for Helen Essex’ is on Sunday 12th of May. This  is an event where there are a range of different cycle routes available between six to one hundred miles all starting and finishing at Hatfield Peverell. Blake told us that 500 riders had registered so far. The target is 800. People can still sign up or just arrive at the start on the day.

More information about the support they provide, upcoming events, fundraising and volunteering opportunities can be found on the website.
