A Little Bit About Us

The Berwick & District Cancer Support Group was founded in 1992 by a group of people who through experience knew how difficult it was to get to main hospitals from our area for cancer appointments.  For those who don’t know where we are, our closest major hospital is almost 60 miles away. They started up in the hope that no one would ever have to worry about travelling to their appointments again.

Our group is run on a totally voluntary basis. Many of our members have experienced living alongside cancer in one way or another. All our members are committed to keeping the service we provide available to all who may need it. We are a local registered charity, {registered charity no.1040297} supported mainly by our fund raising.

Please get in touch with us if you think you might be able to help or contribute in anyway.

Cancer touches every family in some way or another, I never imagined it would touch me. The cancer drivers and staff... have been truly amazing, I cannot thank you enough - everyone of you has helped me and others through the most difficult times taking pressure off the travelling, and making me smile on the hard day's... you are truly very special people that volunteer your time for people that need you. xxxread more

Both myself and my brother in law have had to use the cars. Without them my family would of had to change days off... organise there families to get us to our appointments at the hospitals. The drivers had some very long days when I had chemo but they never complained and looked after me all the time. thank you for your all you have done for us and everyone you have helped you make having cancer just a little bit easier by us not having to worry about transport. xxread more

Cannot review this group highly enough. I never realised just what an amazing job they done until we found ourselves in... need of their help. The service is amazing and the drivers are all lovely. Takes the stress out of the whole experience of so many journeys to hospital and the characters that the drivers are help us through it all. Thanks so so much.read more
