Mid Essex Cancer Support Centre now open!

We are very pleased to announce that our Mid Essex Cancer Support Centre in Hatfield Peverel has officially opened to clients!

Building work commenced in January 2019 with the ground floor being converted into a purpose-built Cancer Support Centre. The first floor continues to accommodate the Finance, Fundraising and Administrative teams.

To save on costs the teams and our loyal volunteers have continued to come into the office and have remained on site putting up with the noise, dust and disruption of a building site.

Pat Hume, Support Centre Manager said “We are very proud of our new Support Centre which provides complementary therapies including reflexology and aromatherapy, as well as counselling and support groups to those affected by cancer. For more information about our upcoming Open Days see below; we look forward to welcoming you!”

Open Days

The Fundraising Team are busy organising a programme of open days to welcome the local community, clients, supporters and volunteers to the new Support Centre. Our objective has always been to provide a calming oasis for our clients, a place where you can have enjoyable, relaxing and calming treatments in the knowledge that you are not alone – that everyone who comes through our door is experiencing the same feelings as you and facing the same difficulties.

Representatives from the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity will be attending the open days and will be on hand to answer questions about the Support Centre and refreshments will be available. 

Wednesday 2nd October; 1pm – 5pm
Thursday 3rd October; 9.30am – 1.30pm
Friday 4th October; 4pm – 8pm
Saturday 5th October; 10am – 3pm

Venue; Mid Essex Support Centre; Yvonne Stewart House, The Street, Hatfield Peverel, Essex, CM3 2EH.
