Total expenditure £2.3 million (2016)
Transparency and clarity about how we raise and spend money are important parts of any charity’s work. Our donations come from a variety of sources, but whether big or small, each one makes a real difference in helping people live as well as they possibly can with a cancer diagnosis.
Our work is made possible thanks to the incredible generosity of our supporters and our committed volunteers and staff, without whom we would be unable to offer our services free of charge to thousands of men and women across the UK. You can read our latest Report and Accounts here.
Working in partnership with other charities and healthcare providers enables us to reach even more people living with cancer. We are currently delivering services in partnership with GenesisCare, Simply Health, Macmillan Cancer Support and a range of local healthcare trusts.
Walk the Walk, a grant-making breast cancer charity and organisers of the famous MoonWalk, has been helping us to bring improved health and enrichment to people affected by cancer since 2000.
Thanks to Walk the Walk, more people than ever are getting the help they need to live as well as possible with the impacts of the disease. Through money raised by events, including The MoonWalk London, their support has helped us keep our services free and enabled us to take our Bristol Whole Life Approach into new communities across the UK.
For us it is transformational because it enables us to attract new partners and funders and to continue to innovate to make sure our services meet the needs of everyone affected by cancer.

“When I had cancer, I knew that I needed support that wasn’t available elsewhere and to be around people that were calm and positive. Penny Brohn became a second home to me. Sometimes, someone just putting their hand on your shoulder is all that you need.”
