1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetimes. The SASH Cancer Fund raises funds for cancer services at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. This includes the East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Support Centre (pictured), chemotherapy services (picture 2) and diagnostic imaging/scans at East Surrey Hospital, Crawley Hosptial and Horsham, and more.

Your donations have recently helped to refurbish the East Surrey Chemotherapy Suite with ten comfortable new chemotherapy chairs, new decor throughout, and a new end of treatment bell. (Details below). You've also helped enhance the East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Centre garden, and providing tablet computers for the chemotherapy suite.


At the request of Cancer Centre users - we need your help to create a new space for people affected by Cancer here in Surrey and Sussex - a beautiful new sheltered and shaded gazebo in the garden of the East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Support Centre.

Your donations will help people enjoy the garden of the cancer centre all year round, providing a calming new space with fresh air, away from the clinical environment, with shelter for rainy days, and shade for sunny days.

The summer house will be for anyone using the cancer centre. Somewhere to shelter from the weather whilst feeling the therapeutic benefits of being in the garden. A sheltered space for reflection and privacy will provide an area to accommodate a different social environment and provide additional stimulation through the colours, smells and sounds of wildlife in the garden.

Centre user Gill says:

The Summerhouse would be an all weather peaceful sanctuary, a restorative oasis surrounded by the garden away from the hustle and bustle of the hospital for therapy, relaxation classes or just a private chat. For many people, their skin can be very sensitive to burning from the sun during radiotherapy, so a covered area/Summerhouse surrounded by the beautiful garden here where you can go for a private chat or therapy will be a great asset to recovery

The new summerhouse will be funded 100% by your donations. To make it happen, we need to raise c£30,000, to complete the necessary preparatory work, and purchase, install and furnish the new summerhouse.

Any additional funds raised will help further enhance cancer services here at Surrey &andSussex Healthcare NHS Trust, for patients, families, and staff who care for us all.

About the centre

The East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Support centre was opened in 2017, jointly funded by Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (SASH), and the generous support of Macmillan Cancer Support. The centre offers additional holistic care and support in a friendly and non-clinical environment for people affected by cancer. Whether a patient, carer, family member or friend, the centre provides a welcoming atmosphere where people can receive practical advice, emotional support or simply a listening ear, at any stage of their cancer experience.

Fundraising for the East Surrey Cancer Centre is now through the SASH Charity Cancer Fund. This fund supports the centre itself, and the related cancer services here at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.

Update on the Chemotherpy Suite Refurbishment

THANK YOU - Your donations to the cancer fund have helped complete a facelift of the chemotherapy suite at East Surrey Hospital. Read more about it HERE. There's so much more the team would like to do in the chemotherapy suite, elsewhere in cancer services at SASH NHS Trust, and in the East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Centre, so every penny raised is hugely valued.

Donations, however large or small, are ring fenced specifically for the cancer services here at SASH NHS Trust, to help us go further for people affected by cancer here in Surrey and Sussex.
