We appoint our patrons to help us raise the awareness and media interest we need to continue helping as many people as possible to live well with cancer.

We are exceptionally lucky to have some key patrons, who have dedicated their time to promote our work and help us to raise the vital funds that we need to provide our services.


HRH, The Prince of Wales

His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales , became our Royal Patron in 1997.  He has been a steadfast supporter and figurehead for over 35 years, having opened the original Bristol Cancer Help Centre in 1983.

“I have always admired the charity’s work to provide physical, emotional and spiritual support to people with cancer and their loved ones. When it comes to compassion in healing, the Bristol Whole Life Approach is second to none.”

The Prince of Wales’ official website is: www.princeofwales.gov.uk

Suranne Jones

BAFTA award-winning actress Suranne Jones, joined us a Celebrity Patron in 2014.

“It amazes me that such an important charity still has quite low awareness, and I think it’s really important that more people know about the support it provides. It really is an unbelievable place.”

Tara Arkle

Tara Arkle is a writer, producer and campaigner.

Tara became a Celebrity Patron in 2016, after her aunt, bestselling author Jackie Collins, named us as the UK charity beneficiary in lieu of flowers following her death from breast cancer in 2015.

John Miles

John Miles is a Talent Agent.

John became a Patron in 2017, but has been a committed supporter of the Charity for more than 20 years. He is very well known in the world of show-business for his business acumen, creativity and generosity, skills he is happy to use to the benefit of Penny Brohn UK.
