We help make a difference to local patients & their familes


I was diagnosed with bi lateral breast cancer on the 1st November 2016 , I received excellent care at the time from the hospital, which I am incredibly grateful for . I have since started working at the cancer well-being centre and am so incredibly proud of the centre and what we offer to patients diagnosed with cancer . I also run the Colchester Cancer choir and we are lucky enough to be able to use the centre for our rehearsals. This is such an important centre for cancer patients and their families and relies on charitable donations to keep it running .

I am doing the three peaks in June , climbing Ben Nevis , Scafell Pike and snowdon in 24 hours (which includes the travel between ) with an amazing team of 9 others made up of family and friends we are asking for donations to help support us in the challenge and for a donation you can choose a song to add to our playlist to keep us spurred on 😊 please put your song choice in the comments below and I will add them for you .

🎵 The hills are aliiiive with the sound of muuuusiiiic 🎵

Some ideas to get you thinking of songs for the playlist:

• Songs about mountains

• Songs about people who need a rest

• Songs about people who wonder why they are on a mountain and not in the pub

• Songs that mean something to you

• Songs that you know for a fact we wont like but you want to wind us up

And so on - thank you in advance (or not, depending on what you pick).🤣🤣

Thank you for your support!
