Challenge 21

For the last 21 years, The Mulberry Centre has been improving the lives of anyone affected by cancer.

Today, we are still the only local organisation providing free information and support services for anyone affected by cancer.

The services we provide include one to one counselling, support groups, complementary therapies, wellbeing classes, online workshops, community engagement, and a peaceful space to relax and meet others, including our garden. Since 2001, we have provided services and support to more than 15,000 people.

“I was a mess before I came into the Centre. I could not think. I was emotional all the time. I felt I was thrown a lifeline. I knew it would help me understand my emotions. I did not expect to be laughing so much! I found the service extremely helpful. I love coming to the Mulberry Centre because it feels such a safe place to be and exudes calm and care.”

To deliver our critical services, we need to raise around £500,000 in charitable donations and grants this year. We need your support to continue to help people cope with the impact of cancer in their lives and improve their well-being now and in the future.

Walk, run, cycle, swim or bake, whatever you can do around the number 21 to challenge yourself to celebrate our 21st birthday and help raise funds for those affected by cancer.

How can you take part in this challenge? You can get the whole family involved and be creative by setting each person their own 21 challenge.
