100% of your donation works hard to keep this service free to patients wherever possible

How it works

We offer 2 free treatments of your choice, after which we invite donations for subsequent treatments.

Our therapists are all volunteers and give their time and expertise for free, as do the lovely people who answer the phone and welcome you when you arrive.

We pay for the continuing professional development of our therapists, car parking, all equipment – acupuncture needles, oils, phones and IT and even this website. Donations are vital in enabling us to continue.

100% of your donation works hard to keep this service free to patients wherever possible.

We make the most of every volunteer and make sure we avoid unnecessary administration costs.

Other ways to donate

In my will

Making a Will is an important way of looking after the future of your family and friends. After you’ve taken care of loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to your favourite charity.

It’s a little known fact that most charities wouldn’t survive without gifts in Wills. 

By remembering  My Cancer My Choices in this way, you’re ensuring that our work will continue to provide some respite for others.

If you choose to leave us a gift, we can provide you with our official charity name, address and registered charity number to give to your professional advisor and codicil should you need it.


Donate your clothes

Whenever you have a wardrobe clear our, you can donate your clothes to us.  Our sustainable clothing partner, Frankie and Ruby, will sort through them and resell or recycle every item and will donate up to 50% of the proceeds to My Cancer My Choices.    

If you click on the link below you can find out exactly how this collaboration works which has already raised over £2000 for the charity.  Turn your preloved clothes into sustainable fashion for others and raise money for us at the same time. 

Donating in memory

In times of loss, it’s often helpful to be able to honour the memory of someone special through a donation to a suitable charity, so that their legacy can live on.

For a recent loss, many also wish to ask family and friends to donate money to a suitable charity, in place of sending flowers to the funeral or memorial.

We have chosen Memory Giving to provide a safe, secure method of collecting donations in memory of a special person. They collect Gift Aid, which further increases the donation, and enable donors to leave a message in tribute to the person being remembered.




Corporate Donation

There are many reasons for businesses to give to charity, a need to be philanthropic, employee engagement, personal emotional reward, even tax benefits.

Whatever your reasons, making a donation to My Cancer My Choices, whether one-off or ongoing, will make an enormous difference to those living with or recovering from cancer.

“We decided to support a local charity as part of our corporate social responsibility and chose My Cancer My Choices when it was all still just a kernel of an idea.

As the charity has grown and developed it has been a joy to watch, an inspiration for our other members, and a privilege to be part of, particularly hearing the impact the charity has had so far on the people it serves.”

Tracey Miller, Director, Bigger Brighter Bolder Ltd, an organisation that supports entrepreneurial businesses.
