At Penny Brohn UK, we recognise that people affected by cancer need more than medicine. Responding to a rising need Penny Brohn UK is now partnering with the NHS to offer the Living Well Programme to patients recently diagnosed. It’s an amazing boost to be so acknowledged by the NHS. It also means of course that patients do not have to travel, that the charity’s work is now more accessible to so many more people.
Courses now run in many areas on London including at several hospitals like Barts, Kings College, St Thomas’, St Marks, Tower Hamlets, as well as Kingston, and Croydon University Hospital.
We are delighted to the holding our annual afternoon at former Midlands bank turned members club The Ned. Thanks to the amazing ongoing support of Soho Group founder and Chief Executive Nick Jones. Since its creation the event has raised over £80,000 to support people to live well with cancer in Greater London.
We are aiming to raise £15,000 at the event to fund 60 people to attend our Living Well Course, in London, to help them develop the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to better manage the impact of cancer on their lives. Help us to ensure we are here to support people every step of the way, for as long as we are needed.
The tea will be attended by 100 business men & women, high net worth individuals, supporters of the charity and those who have benefitted from our services. The event is supported by many well-known organisations including The Ned, Jo Malone and Aesop.
About Penny Brohn UK.
At Penny Brohn UK, we recognise that people affected by cancer need more than medicine.
We are the only charity in the UK specialising in an integrated whole person approach to cancer, known as the Bristol Whole Life Approach.
We see each person as a unique individual with their own set of hopes and needs – a whole person made up of mind, body, spirit and emotions.
We are the only charity in the UK to take an integrated whole person approach to cancer support. Using evidence-based therapies that work alongside standard medical treatment to achieve the best health and wellbeing.
Our Bristol Whole Life Approach shows that there is more to health than simply what is going on in our bodies and that to be resilient and to function as well as we can, we need to pay attention to our mental, emotional and spiritual health as well as our physical health.
Exploring areas like diet, exercise, emotions, relationships and managing stress, our free courses, one-to-one therapies, and group sessions, help people to make small but sustainable changes whilst nurturing themselves at the deepest level. We help people to manage the impact of cancer through:
• Residential and single day courses at our National Centre near Bristol
• Living Well services throughout the UK including London
• One-to-one complementary therapies and counselling service
• Access to a dedicated helpline staffed by trained volunteers
• Provision of a range of evidence-based information.
This support includes:
• Information and advice on healthy eating and the benefits of physical activity • Self-help techniques including meditation, relaxation and imagery
• Body related therapies such as massage and shiatsu
• Emotional support through counselling and group work
• Creative therapies such as music and art therapy
We also work with those supporting someone with cancer and help them to build their own personal resources.
