Who we are
The Bath Cancer Unit Support Group is a small local charity, run entirely by volunteers, which supports the work of cancer facilities at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. We do this by raising money to purchase equipment facilities and services that the NHS are unable to fund. The aim is to improve outcomes and the well-being of local cancer patients.
Welcome from the Chair, Mike Taylor
Welcome to our new-look website which we hope you will find much easier to navigate…
The Charity is run entirely by volunteers, meaning there are no paid staff. Approximately 95% of all monies raised goes straight into equipment and resources for the Cancer Unit at the RUH. The other 5% is spent on vital administration costs. During the past 33 years, our enthusiastic volunteers have raised over £5 million
We exceeded our target of £500,000 at the end of 2023.
Please can you help us by providing your email address?
We would like to communicate with you more regularly than we do now – maybe a quarterly update by email. We are therefore asking for your email address. We promise we won’t bombard you with stuff and there will be an opt out on every mail message we send. By going digital, we’ll be able to reduce our overheads even further, let you know about forthcoming events and our successes at more appropriate times.
The click through will ask for your e-mail and name, and confirmation that we may email you with our news and updates
