The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity (HRCC) held an evening event to honour and thank Graham Hart for his long-standing contributions to the charity. Graham initially accessed the services offered by HRCC but soon became an active member of the charity, joining as a Trustee in 2000. In 2014, while on holiday, he was elected as the Chair of Trustees, a position he held until January 2020 after the completion of the rebuilding project at the Hatfield Peverel Cancer Support Centre.
Throughout his time as a Trustee and Chair of Trustees, Graham played a significant role in the development of HRCC and the Support Centre. He used his business experience, which covered sales, marketing, general management, and company direction, to guide the organisation’s growth and direction. Prior to his involvement with the charity, Graham worked as a university senior lecturer, specialising in online management.
In recognition of Graham’s legacy, the Trustees decided to name the community room at the Mid Essex Support Centre after him and named it the Hart Community Room. During the evening, Graham expressed his gratitude for the recognition and his emotional connection to the charity.
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity provides care and support to adults affected by cancer through a range of complementary therapies, counselling, mindfulness, yoga, and more. The organisation is dedicated to supporting men and women with all types of cancer at all stages of their journey, whether they are newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment, or in recovery.
Graham and his wife Gwynne were warmly welcomed by HRCC, and the organisation expressed their appreciation for Graham’s ongoing support as a Member of the Charity.
