Spring newsletter 2015

It has been a busy few months at Uganda Cancer Trust UK…

Our new trustees, Liz and Mike Minton, and Chair Christine Whitehouse met with Dr Mhoira Leng from Makerere Palliative Care Unit on her annual visit to the UK. This was a great opportunity to catch up with progress on projects and forward plans.

Liz and Mike also visited Kampala before Christmas and Liz spent time with the volunteers supported by Uganda Cancer Trust UK, seeing the work they do and providing support from her experience with Maggie’s Caring Centre in Oxford. In her words:

‘there is no doubt that the volunteers provide an excellent and valued service and make a real difference to the lives of the patients they support’.

We were very fortunate to receive a second grant from ArcAid to fund the information nurse post for another year.

Uganda Cancer Trust UK is now registered with another donation website, Givey, and are also on the eBay charity list. And if anyone is into marathon running, or knows someone who is, please consider the Uganda International Marathon as a fund raising opportunity – and a fantastic opportunity for a unique experience. We already have one runner registered – more information on how to sponsor him in the next post.

You can read more about all of these activities in our Spring Newsletter.

Best wishes to all, and thank you so much for your continued support.
