Charity for 2016/17 - The Fountain Centre
The Fountain Centre is a charity for cancer patients, their families and carers located in the St Luke’s cancer unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford. They offer advice, counselling and a huge range of complementary therapies, in a calming and relaxed atmosphere.
When a patient is diagnosed with cancer they often find themselves in a state of shock with their lives spiralling out of control, not knowing where to turn. The Fountain Centre is there for patients and their families from the initial cancer diagnosis until treatment finishes and beyond.
We provide information, counselling and complementary therapies, allowing patients to make informed choices and regain control of their future. Our reception and lounge are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, and complementary therapy appointments can be booked in advance either in person or over the phone.
The Fountain Centre is an independent charity. They rely on the generosity of their volunteers and donors and those who support their fundraising events to keep going – which costs over £200,000 every year. You can also help by volunteering, giving a donation, organising or coming to an event or leaving a legacy. Visit their website for more information.
