The retreat will be a place were patients can stay with their loved ones to indulge themselves in the tranquillity and peace of the countryside. A place were they can escape the constant radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other forms of hospital treatments they have to endure. The trust has already been granted use of land on the Forest Mere estate, where we have full planning permission. The fundraising will be possible with the help of our friends, supporters, patrons and sponsors with hard work, dedication and commitment, we will achieve our goals.
