South East London Breast Cancer Trust was formed in August 2010 as a result of patients leading a fund raising campaign to purchase a lymph node analyser for The Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough Kent since when our charity evolved. We raised over £120,000 for this project. We aim to buy equipment for local hospitals and chemo units locally. To date we have helped the following hospitals, The Princess Royal, Queen Mary’s, Queen Elizabeth Woolwich, Bexley & Greenwich Hospice and Harris Hospice Care as well as donating to the Brca Support Group at Guys Hospital.
We also run a buddy scheme for patients who would like support during their treatments. All buddies are Macmillan trained.
On the last Wednesday of the month we hold a support group meeting at The Sloane Beckenham for all breast cancer patients NHS or private. They can come along and have light refreshments, a chat and on some evenings we have a speaker or some complimentary small treatments on offer like mini manicure/reflexology etc.
Our aim is to help breast cancer patients and their families in South East London area.
