In March we received a generous donation of £675 from Barnard Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners, based in Wymondham. The donation was made up of £175 from Barnard and £500 from the East Anglian Mark Benevolent Association and will go towards supporting local people affected by cancer.
The members of the Lodge were invited along to of our ‘Supporter Open Mornings’ where they get the chance to have a look round the centre and meet staff, patients and volunteers.
Richard Pryor, Provincial Grand Senior Warden, said of their visit: “The Nurse, Tina, immediately told us that this gift would enhance the work of the self funded centre. As part of their presentation, we were introduced to a patient who uses the services of Star Throwers. It became apparent that she was the person she is because of the support, encouragement and friendship she received; powerful stuff! A great local charity providing an immense benefit to the local community and beyond.”
We will be holding our next Open Day on Wednesday 8thMay from 10am – 4pm where you can find out more about the free support services they offer and even book a trial treatment.
