The Horsham Centre, based in Lavinia House opened its doors to the local community one year ago, and has had a significant number of new members join to access their vital services.

Securing this support from the National Lottery Community Fund will help immensely with the development of the new Centre in Horsham.

A spokesperson from the charity had the following to say: “We are delighted to share that we have been successful in our funding application to the National Lottery, to help support the growth of our Horsham Centre. Many thanks to The National Lottery Community Fund and its players – you are helping us to continue to provide services for those living with cancer and their loved ones.”
