Video - The Brigitte Trust Presented by Nicholas Owen

Sadly, many of us are touched by cancer it can be a family member, a friend or business colleague and the news can be devastating.
The Brigitte Trust offers a free volunteer service of emotional support and practical help in the home. Practical issues like driving, shopping and getting to hospital for treatment can sometimes be hard to manage, and our volunteers can make a real difference. In partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, the Trust offers a volunteer who will visit weekly and build up a relationship with the patient and carer offering respite, company and time to listen without judgment.
Volunteer training is free. We ask for a commitment of four hours each week to visiting. More information below:
