Checking out the chill-out room!

We are delighted to announce that on Monday 19 June 2017 the chill-out room for young people with cancer opened at St George’s Hospital. We were delighted to come to see the room and meet Nikki, the TYA nurse who will be using this room as a base for counselling and therapeutic activities.

 Over 6 years we have raised almost £20,000 to enable St George’s Hospital transform a small tatty staff room into a relaxing oasis for young people with cancer, as well as being a base for Nikki, a specialist nurse (funded by Macmillan Nurses) who will provide support and therapeutic activities – which we are hoping to support in the future.

This has only been possible thanks to the support of Furzedown neighbours, local schools, businesses and friends. Including the generous donations from Heyland & Whittle, plus fundraising and support from Graveney School and FCN.

There will be a full opening later in the year
