HRCC are delighted to announce that following our entry into the 2021 Brentwood Business Awards, we have won the Best Charity/Community Interest Company Award!

This award gives recognition to charities and community interest companies whose voluntary and inspiring work underpins many vital but unacknowledged aspects of life giving a positive impact in the community.

The Brentwood Business Awards are designed to showcase the very best that the Brentwood business community has to offer and recognise the strongest, most innovative, and most determined businesses and people, based within Brentwood.

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity CEO Kate Alden said; “We are delighted to have won Best Charity/Community Interest Company Award at the Brentwood Business Awards 2021!

Our Support Centres offer a range of complementary therapies to patients in an environment of peace and tranquillity, including counselling, reflexology, aromatherapy, manual lymphatic drainage and support groups. We support men and women with all types of cancer at all stages – whether newly diagnosed or longer-term, throughout treatment and after treatment is completed.

We rely on donations, fundraising and money raised through our charity shops to continue operating our Support Centres; we encourage donations to continue the work we do.

I am very privileged to be part of a fantastic team of staff and volunteers that enable quality of life while living with cancer and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all for the time, passion and care that allows HRCC to support so many people in so many ways”.
