1,000 face masks donated by ‘Coping with Cancer North East’

Coping with Cancer North East

The incredibly kind folk at Coping with Cancer North East have made a very generous donation of 1,000 medical grade face masks in aid of our transport service. Two of our team; Fleet Coordinator & Driver, Tom, and Bookings Coordinator, Nicola – both pictured here with the centre’s Complementary Therapies Manager, Angela – visited the organisation’s head office at The Woodruff Centre in Cramlington to be presented with the face masks. CEO, Maggie Bailey very kindly showed our representatives around the centre to view their facilities and to meet members of the team.

The team offers a wide-range of social, emotional, mental and physical care support services. We encourage you to visit their website to find out more about the important work they do : Coping with Cancer North East

” Coping with Cancer North East was set up in 1982 by a group of people whose lives had been touched by Cancer.  Led by Irene Smith (who passed away 20 March 1985) they set up a volunteering group to share their experiences with others through emotional and social support, with practical support and information.

Judith Woodruff joined the charity in 1994 as a volunteer coordinator after leaving Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge where she was involved in medical training and research in psychiatry and neuroscience.  She became the Chief Executive and manged the organisation through many changes and growth over twenty years until she died suddenly on holiday at the end of 2018. During her time with Coping with Cancer North East, we were involved with many services at hospitals and health centres throughout the North East. “

A huge, deeply heartfelt THANK YOU from all of us at the Berwick & District Cancer Support Group for the kindness and generosity of the team at ‘Coping with Cancer North East’ for their donation and for the wonderful work they do!
