FORCE Cancer Charity In Urgent Need Of Support
FORCE Cancer Charity believes that anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support available.
Since 1987, it has supported patients and their families; growing to become a hugely respected regional charity in the region.
Despite the impact of COVID-19 on services and income, the charity has dynamically restructured its provision of help. People in need of physical, emotional, psychological and practical support can still receive it when they most need it.
The FORCE Cancer Support and Information Centre in Exeter is temporarily closed along with its weekly community outreach centres in Okehampton, Tiverton and Honiton
But counselling, information and advice on claiming benefits and safe exercise is available via phone or video calls.
FORCE Working Hard To Raise Funds
The charity also continues to fund the specialist nurses who deliver vital chemotherapy treatment in Okehampton and Honiton.
The pandemic means FORCE is facing an income shortfall of at least £500,000. However, the charity remains committed to being there for local people when cancer turns their life upside down
Like many charities and businesses, FORCE is working hard to raise vital funds to maintain services through this difficult period.
“We hope that summer events like the Virtual Nello, Cream Teas for Cancer and Full FORCE ahead, will go some way to help raise income to continue supporting LOCAL people affected by cancer,” Olly Watts, fundraising development officer at FORCE.
“Whatever way you and your team can help support FORCE, we would really appreciate it and say a huge THANK YOU in advance.”
