Centre News

Inside Welcome this Issue Hello and welcome to the summer edition of The Message. Here at Wessex Cancer Trust, we are extremely excited to reveal a number of new projects, including our new online community for anyone to find support at any hour of the day, and a new counselling group, specifically for men. We also opened our eighth retail store in Portchester, which is already busy thanks to the support of a great team of volunteers. As we head into summer, it is the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy the British Coast and countryside, or jet off to even sunnier climes. We have included some top tips to help keep you and your family safe in the sun on pages 8-9. If you have green fingers, or perhaps would like to get into gardening, we hope you’ll be inspired by our interview with the legendary Alan Titchmarsh. As well as sharing his passion for gardening and his long time connection with the Trust, we have included some summer gardening advice from our corporate partner, Hillier’s Nurseries. Our annual Cakes4Cancer appeal has seen more success this year, and we are extremely grateful to all those involved in ‘baking’ a difference. I would also like to mention a special thank you to our 2017 London Marathon team who bravely trained through the winter months and reached an incredible fundraising total, which you can read about on page 14. We are reliant on our loyal supporters to keep finding new and exciting ways to raise funds. Whether it is climbing Kilimanjaro with us, or holding an event to bring your community together, please consider turning your own passion into support for local people with cancer.

Bournemouth’s 1st Birthday Happy Birthday Bournemouth Centre! A year ago, we opened the doors to our Support Centre in Bournemouth. We have already made a big impact in the area, providing 1,800 counselling and therapy hours. During 2017 the Centre will be expanding their services even further, with dedicated children’s services and exciting themed coffee mornings and workshops.

Chandler’s Ford Centre Ladies Day Success! In memory of Joan Stroud, a client in Chandler’s Ford, the Centre held a spring Ladies Day. With local businesses holding stalls ranging from cakes & crafts to mini manicures, the event raised over £800. All money raised will go towards helping people affected by cancer in the Chandler’s Ford area. A big thank you to everyone who came and supported on the day.

Special Day for children on Piam Brown Ward Children from the Piam Brown Ward in Southampton General Hospital received a special day out this April thanks to Wessex Fire and Rescue Service and Paultons Park. Here is just one of the very happy children!

Inside Wessex

Inside Wessex

Hear from a Volunteer Don Hedges, Wessex Cancer Trust Community Champion Meet Don. He has been helping the Trust for a number of years now, and is somebody we are extremely grateful for. We caught up with him for a quick chat, to let you know what being a Community Champion really means. Can you tell us about your involvement with the Trust? Firstly, I support activities in the Head Office by providing my expertise from a background in business. Beyond that, I always aim to spread awareness of Wessex Cancer Trust and the important work that they do. I hope that by sharing this message with others, they will do the same, and as a result the charity will be able to support more people.

Do you enjoy your role as a Community Champion? Yes, I really do. It’s great being able to integrate and mix with people – as this is something I have been doing in one way or another my whole life, so it plays to my strengths. I also find promoting the charity very rewarding, as it is a little way of me paying back for the amazing way they have helped me in the past.

You mention that the Trust has helped you in the past. How did you first become involved with us? I first became involved by being referred as patient, after being diagnosed with cancer in 2008. I spent four years in hospital and was on a trial course of chemotherapy, and this of course was a huge knock to me.

Wessex Cancer Trust helped me through some very dark times, and in return I decided that although I could give money, my skills and experience in business and networking would be more sustainable and therefore worth more to the Trust.

To somebody considering getting involved with Wessex Cancer Trust, what would you say? Whether it’s volunteering, donating, or anything else, I would say just do it! Everybody has unique skills and knowledge that is valuable, and even if you are able to give one hour per week, it will still make a huge difference to the cause. Every minute and every penny is important, so if you can spare even a small amount of time or money then don’t hesitate to do so.

Thank you with a

Cherry on Top Throughout May, we called on supporters, community groups and local businesses to ‘bake a difference’ by taking part in our Cakes4Cancer appeal.

Over sixty events were held across the Wessex region, which will help us run our services and support those affected by cancer. A massive thank you to everybody involved, we have included as many of you as we can!

What has been your most memorable moment since working with the Trust? At last year’s Anniversary Ball I was involved in the auction, and on a whim decided to sell a cow head my sister in law had sculpted for me from a building block. As this was a unique item, I was unsure of what the response would be. But, amazingly, it received a final bid of over £200! This was something that I will certainly never forget.

The Conversation


Hillier’s Top Summer Gardening Tips

Titchmarsh Alan Titchmarsh is not only a gardener, presenter and novelist - but also a friend of Wessex Cancer Trust. He was kind enough to catch up with us for a chat about his passion for gardening and his connection to the Trust, as well as his future endeavours. Hillier’s Garden Centres have also provided us with some top summer gardening tips, which may prove very useful! Hi Alan, thanks so much for speaking to us. Everybody knows you for your passion for gardening; could you tell our supporters how it all started? It all started when I was about 10 years old, as I loved being outdoors, and still do! I have been fortunate to do many things during my career, but at the heart of it all, I feel connected to the earth. I believe that we have a responsibility associated with nature, not an onerous one, but a privilege – to take care of our patch of ground and hand it over in better heart than when we took it on.

You’ve had such an incredible and varied career based around this passion. Have there been any particular highlights over the years that stand out in your mind? One experience that I will certainly always remember is making a garden for the great Nelson Mandela. I travelled to South Africa with Ground Force and created a garden around his beautiful home in Transkei. Not only that, but I was able to meet him, and I don’t believe I have ever encountered such quiet grace and a complete lack of bitterness in an individual.

Some readers may not know this, but you have been a great supporter of Wessex Cancer Trust over the years. Was there something specific or a personal connection that started your support? It was in fact a personal connection. A friend’s husband that sadly passed away found Wessex Cancer Trust extremely supportive and as a result I was a patron for over 20 years. I still support what you do, as I feel that you ensure people know they are not alone when suffering with cancer – which is one of the most important things.

Many of our clients say that gardening has had a positive impact on their recovery. Why do you think gardening makes such a big difference to someone’s quality of life? Because I believe it connects you to the real world, rather than what we perceive as reality. For example, we turn on the news and are only presented with the problems in the world. Gardening allows us to escape that, and watch things grow


Summer 2017

that you planted and cared for; reminding you that the future will happen, but it’s up to us to take care of it. With no pun intended, I believe gardening helps to ground us.

Some people may feel daunted by the idea of gardening, perhaps if they haven’t done it before or are returning it to it after illness. What advice would you give them? Firstly, I would say take it slowly. Do not rush at it like a bull at a gate. Work out what it is that you want from your garden and then plan accordingly and monitor the results over time. For example, if you would like to choose a nice spot for sitting in the evening sunshine, have a look where the sun lands, rather than just plonking things down randomly. Also, start with the part of the garden outside your kitchen window; as this is the part we stare at all of the time. Many people make the mistake of spending hours on the far end of their garden first and are left feeling defeated, as they can never see it.

One of our service users is desperate to know, what are your favourite plants personally, Alan? It depends entirely on the time of year. In the winter, I love the snowdrops and harley cyclamen that come up, then as time progresses it’s the daffodils and narcissus, and once I’m getting bored of them the tulips come out, and so on. This is the great thing about gardening in Britain – you do not have to limit yourself to one favourite flower, as they all come out at different times of the year - seasonality is a great refresher.

Finally, Alan, we were wondering if you have any new projects in the pipeline that you could share with our supporters? We will be filming a new series of Love your Garden in 2017, which I am very excited about. Also, another new series of a quiz I devised called ‘Masterpiece’. As a pensioner I feel I am doing pretty well keeping myself busy!

Alan will be supporting Wessex Cancer Trust at the Hillier garden as part of the Chelsea Garden Show this year. Find out more about at Alan at: www.alantitchmarsh.com


1. Water regularly:

2. Conserve water:

A good hose is essential and there are some great retractable hoses available now, which make life even simpler by putting themselves away after! The best time to water is early in the morning. If you water in the midday sun you can scorch your foliage, plus the water evaporates more quickly.

Prepare for dry spells with some simple water conservation ideas. To keep soil moist, add pot toppers or gravel pebbles to pots and containers and a layer of mulch to your beds and borders - bark is a classic material used for protection.

3. Spray, feed & water roses: To achieve top quality roses that provide fragrant flowers all summer, keep feeding and watering them and watch out for any disease. Sprinkle Rose Food around the base of your roses and spray with a specific rose product, like Rose Clear.

4. Deadhead to rejuvenate:

5. Plan holiday care:

It is not just roses that benefit from deadheading in summer. You can prune back all plants that have flowered in spring. Use a light pair of pruners and regularly pick over your plants – we think of it as giving them a haircut! – to help them flower a second time in summer and produce decent growth for the following spring.

If you are going to be away, you want to make sure your garden and lawn is in good shape when you come back. If you have a friendly neighbour, you can ask them to stop in and water for you. If not, there are plenty of other ways including high tech watering systems, that allow you to control garden watering from anywhere in the world.

6. Plant late summer to early autumn herbaceous plants:

7. Tidy and compost:

If you are feeling energetic there are a number of plants that can be added to beds and borders in summer to give colour through to autumn. We particularly recommend Rudbeckia, Gaura and Geranium Rozanne.

To keep your garden looking beautiful, tidy up cuttings, weeds and leaves as you go, placing them into pop-up garden bags. Your plant material – lawn clippings, weeds, etc. - can be added to your compost pile if you have one, along with items like vegetable peelings.

Staying Skin Safe

in the Sun

As the summer approaches we’re all looking forward to days out, more time in the garden or maybe even a holiday abroad. Whatever your summer plans, the best way to enjoy the sun safely and protect your skin from sunburn is to use a combination of shade, clothing and sunscreen. Children and teenagers might need a helping hand, but setting a good example is a great way to help them set good habits and make sure the whole family is protected.

Who is most at risk of skin cancer? No matter how dark our skin is, or how easily we tan, the fact is we are all at risk. However, some people are at greater risk including: • Fair skin that burns easily

• A family history of skin cancer

• Red or fair hair

• A history of sunburn

• Lots of moles/freckles

Skin Cancer Facts • Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK • Malignant melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is one of the most common cancers in young adults (aged 15-34) in the UK



• Almost all skin cancers are caused by over-exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun and/or sunbeds • All skin types can be damaged by exposure to UVR and damage is permanent, irreversible and increases with each exposure

The 5 S’s of SUN SAFETY 1. Slip on a t-shirt • Clothing can be one of the most effective barriers between our skin and the sun • Clothing should cover as much skin as possible • Always keep shoulders covered, as they can easily burn • A closer weave will provide more protection • A high UPF rated fabric provides best protection

2. Slop on factor 30+ sunscreen • No sunscreen provides complete protection • Never rely on sunscreen alone to protect your skin • Always use a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or above, preferably water resistant • Make sure it’s broad spectrum and carries a UVA symbol (if it has a star rating, use a minimum of 4 stars)

• More people die from skin cancer in the UK than in Australia

3. Slap on a hat • Always wear a hat with a wide brim that shades the face, neck and ears • Legionnaire (with a flap that covers the neck and joins the front peak) or bucket style hats (with minimum 7.5cm brim) are the most effective • Warning: baseball caps do not shade the ears and neck, which can easily burn

• Store in an accessible, cool place and remember to check the expiry date

4. Slide on some sunglasses

5. Shade from the sun when possible

• Solar UV radiation can be damaging to the eyes so it is important to wear quality sunglasses

• Seek shade whenever possible, particularly at the hottest times of the day between 11am and 3pm, when UV penetration is strongest

• Overall protection depends on the quality of the lens and the overall design • Look for the European CE mark which indicates a safe level of protection

• Keep toddlers and babies in the shade at all times • Never rely on shade alone, always combine with personal protection measures

• Ensure they are close fitting and wrap around to stop solar UVR entering the sides and top

• Apply a generous amount to clean, dry, exposed skin • Apply 20 minutes before going outdoors and preferably once again when outdoors

Supporting local families with cancer

Brian and Linda, regular visitors to our Support Centre in Cosham, were kind enough to share their story with us just before Christmas; a story that dates back around 12 years. During this time, a lot changed for the couple - including their marriage in August last year. Having both been heavily affected by cancer, we decided to share their touching story of support, companionship and hope, as these are all values that mean a great deal to the Trust.

They enjoyed going on days out and accompanying each other shopping, which really helped the loneliness they felt. After moving in together and taking numerous coach trips and weekends away over the following years, in 2015 Brian received the devastating news that he had cancer. Linda assured Brian that she would stay by his side and support him throughout his treatment, including chemotherapy every 2 weeks at Queen Alexandra Hospital. They also made the big decision to get married, and booked a registry office for the 16th August 2016. They had a wonderful day, with 39 friends and family attending. The service was followed by a pub lunch reception and beautifully decorated by their children, including a wedding cake made by Brian’s daughter.

Unity Lottery is operated by Sterling Management Ltd which is registered as an external lottery manager with The Gambling Commission.


Towards the end of 2005, both Linda and Brian’s partners sadly passed away after battling with cancer. They first met as members of a bereavement group at their local hospice, which provided people with an opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. Brian asked Linda to attend a remembrance event with him in 2006, and from this point, they began to spend more time together.


Being with each other gave Brian and Linda even more reason to fight the cancer and through visiting the Wessex Cancer Support Centre they both gained new friends, made memories and shared companionship together. Sadly, due to an infection, Brian lost his battle with cancer on 16th February 2017. The team at Cosham continue to support Linda, and our thoughts are with her at this difficult time.

We know that losing someone to cancer is incredibly difficult, and we are here to support you. For information on bereavement support, please visit www.wessexcancer.org.uk

In the Community Specsavers continue support for 2nd year

Taylor Made take on the Three Peaks Challenge Taylor Made Computer Solutions are taking on a mountain-sized challenge this September by climbing the UK’s three biggest peaks in 24 hours. Joe Jeffers, Director of Finance, says: “The Taylor Made team chose Wessex Cancer Trust as its charity partner for 2017 as so many of us are affected by cancer directly or indirectly. Wessex Cancer Trust is a local charity that supports not just the cancer patient, but also the family members. We are looking forward to taking on the three peaks challenge to raise funds.”

A huge thank you to the staff at Specsavers for their support in 2016. Thanks to their generosity and enthusiasm our partnership raised an incredible £5,718 to support local families. Rick Kocher, Director of IT says!:

You can support the 20 strong team in reaching their £15,000 goal at: www.justgiving.com/ fundraising/Taylor-Made-Three-Peaks

“Specsavers has a culture of supporting and engaging with the communities it serves, therefore it was a natural fit for our office to choose to support Wessex Cancer Trust throughout 2016 and we are delighted with the fundraising amount achieved!” For Specsavers, working with a highly regarded and admired charity in the Wessex region helps to reinforce our commitment to being a company that has the health and wellbeing of the community at the centre of everything we do.” We are delighted that Specsavers will be supporting us again in 2017, which will enable us to help even more local people living with cancer.

Cactus Business Solutions are very proud to support this year’s annual Golf Classic day at South Winchester Golf Club taking place on 21st September 2017. Simon Cartwright, Managing Director, says:


Summer 2017

Shockingly, 200,000 men are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK and many more are affected by their partners receiving a devastating diagnosis. At Wessex Cancer Trust we know that men are often less likely to reach out for support, which can have a huge impact on themselves and those close to them. At the core of Round Table is a determination to go the extra mile for friends, family and the community, so when we told them about our mission to support more men in 2017 they were keen to get involved. In partnership, we have launched a brand new community based support group, exclusively for men. Sessions will provide an opportunity to talk to other people who are in a similar situation and to share experiences. The group will offer a confidential space to express concerns that men might not want to share with friends and family. Another goal of our partnership with Winchester Round Table is to raise more awareness about male cancer and aim to remove the stigma around talking openly. Many men feel embarrassed about seeking medical help and, as a result, more lives are taken. We hope that by uniting, MEN talk will make more men aware of the early signs and take action sooner. The group will meet at Friends House, Winchester on the first Tuesday of each month from 7.30pm – 9.30pm. If you or someone you know could benefit from attending our male only support group, please contact men@wessexcancer.org.uk or call 023 8067 2200.

Cactus Business Solutions will sponsor our Golf Classic in South Winchester

“Cactus have always enjoyed attending other events they have organised over the years, which makes supporting Wessex Cancer Trust easy. We all know cancer is a terrible disease, every day you hear of someone, somewhere being affected, and with the good work that Wessex Cancer Trust do they should get all the support we can give.’’
