The Lynda Jackson Centre has been a haven in our community for many people affected by cancer, and it offers a range of support and information services enhancing the clinical care provided by Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. It was the first clinic of its kind to open in the country, recognising the need for emotional and practical support and over the last 25 years, 100,000 face to face conversations have been had at the drop in centre, and over 52,000 through the telephone helpline.

Inspirational speeches were given by both hosts, along with Lynda Jackson’s sister and a previous patient of the centre. The charity aim to raise in excess of £240,000 this year, to continue with this important work. So this September 30th, we will once again be privileged to support the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre at the Moor Park 10k run by offering pre and post run massages – we will try and raise as much as we can in support of them so come along, say hello, and if you are running – book yourself in for a massage!
