In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are quickly evolving our support services to ensure that we have resources available that are easy to access from home. Whilst, our support centres are currently closed for the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers, we have introduced a telephone support service and set up an online support group. We'll be continually updating our online resources, which will include videos and helpful advice, streaming of classes and meditation and telephone counselling.

Our transport services are still running, with increased precautions for clients. We're still here for you, and we're committed to being here for you for as long as we possibly can be.

While we continue to support people affected by cancer during this difficult time, the financial impact of Covid-19 poses an unprecedented challenge for us. At the moment we don't know just how big an impact the pandemic will have, but we've had to cancel or change plans for much of this year's fundraising programme and we've also now had to close our charity shops across the region.

The period from March until the end of July is incredibly important to us, and the postponement of the London Marathon, along with other challenge events, will hit us hard. Our flagship fundraising event Walk for Hope was due to take place in June, but we've had to postpone it which means the predicted income is now in doubt. As well as events and community fundraising activities being cancelled, many of corporate friends are not at work to support our fundraising efforts.

Please do consider making a donation to help us through this uncertain time and thank you for continuing to support Wessex Cancer Trust. We're extremely proud to be part of a wonderful community and of the work our teams do to support local people affected by cancer, and we're determined to get through this tough time too.
