Breast Cancer Haven Bucket Collection Fri, 04 Jan 19 17:27:49 +0000 We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our audience members who donated throughout this year’s pantomime, Beauty and the Beast.  Your generosity raised £2,178.66 for Breast Cancer Haven.

Breast Cancer Haven is the charity that supports women through their breast cancer treatment. When breast cancer tries to rob a woman of her individuality, her confidence or her strength, we provide the tailored package of emotional, physical and practical support that helps her hold on to them. 

We support women and their families via a network of six welcoming centres around the UK and through an expanding network of other services.

We're there to provide women with breast cancer the support that treatment alone can't.
