Free, Exclusive, Cancer Care Transport

The Berwick & District Cancer Support Group was founded in 1992 and our main service is to provide free transport to any cancer sufferer to all major hospitals in our area. The group is entirely made up of volunteers and we rely on the help and support of everyone in the community. Get in touch with us to find out more and help us by supporting the many events and activities that the community hold in aid of our charity.

Our main service is to provide free transport to any cancer sufferer to all major hospitals in our area e.g. Wansbeck, Newcastle, Borders General and Edinburgh for any cancer related appointment. When possible a friend or relative may travel alongside for support but please check a seat is available when making travel arrangements.

Our drivers try to ensure a comfortable journey and should you need any further assistance please don’t hesitate to ask, as other practical help can be arranged if needed.

OK, YOU HAVE CANCER!

We would love to take this horrible disease away from you but unfortunately we can't.  What we can do though is make sure you don't have to worry about travelling the 120 miles for your appointments each time.

We are a lovely bunch of people who all live in Berwick (you may even know some of us), we have 5 top of the range comfortable cars,  a smiling, happy driver who will come and collect you, show you where you need to go, wait for you and bring you home safely again.  All for FREE!

Let us help.......
