Our objectives are to help new patients and their families to cope with any difficulties arising as a result of treatment, giving support and encouraging them to make a good recovery.
This is done by visiting patients in hospital, where possible, before and/or after treatment; establishing contact with them at home during their convalescence; providing information leaflets on matters of concern and arranging meetings of patients.

The sponsored walk was originated by Gerard Mitchell who decided to raise funds to support cancer charities following the death of two of his close friends.
The Dave Owens and Frank Goodall Memorial Fund sponsored walk is an annual challenge walk to raise funds for our nominated charities in support of cancer research, prevention, and treatment.
Originally a challenge walk across the three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales, we now organise a highly popular two distance walk around the beautiful countryside and villages of the Chatsworth Area in Derbyshire.
See other parts of this site for details of the our most recent walk, histories of previous walks, photographs and all accounts of the funds raised so far.
