Barnet and District CancerLink based in Union Street, Barnet have donated £50,000 towards the inpatient unit refurbishment at North London Hospice. CancerLink is a non medical service for people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Run by a fantastic team of volunteers they offer a drop in service every Wednesday 1.30pm-4.00pm where people can pop in for a friendly chat over a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy a complementary therapy. CancerLink gives people the opportunity to share their experience of cancer with others as a means of giving mutual support. Eve Greenway volunteers at North London Hospice and CancerLink said: “It’s really important for us to help other local charities who support people with cancer. The newly refurbished inpatient unit looks fantastic and it’s a privilege for us to have been able to help fund it.” Robin Langrishe, director of fundraising at North London Hospice said:” “On behalf of North London Hospice, I would like to thank all the fantastic volunteers at CancerLink for contributing to the refurbishment of our inpatient unit. It costs North London Hospice more than £7million each year to provide specialist care to our patients and their loved ones. We hugely rely on support from our local community to enable us to continue the vital work we do for our patients and families.” For more information: http://www.barnetanddistrictcancerlink.co.uk/index.html
