The Charity

Barnet based charity Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is an independent charity committed to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer, their carers, family and friends.

They work alongside the clinical care of the NHS in an area centred on Barnet and covering much of North London and South Hertfordshire. They also have an Outreach Service with an impact across the borough of Barnet, concentrating particularly on providing information and support to members of black and minority ethnic groups. Our Befriending Service provides additional support for people in their own homes.

Cancer continues to be a priority for the NHS, and the last decade has seen real progress in the diagnosis and treatment of many different types of cancer. Survival rates in the UK are now significantly better than before, but the number of cases is rising each year and national resources are stretched. There is an unmet need and a growing demand for the services we provide.

Cherry Lodge CC provide these services free of charge, and focus on the provision of high-quality cancer support, information and complementary therapies. These are delivered by cancer nurse specialists and by therapists with appropriate qualifications and insurance. All their staff and the many volunteers who work alongside them, attach great importance to the practical, emotional and physical well-being of their Members (the people who use our services).

Cherry Lodge CC is now completely dependent on voluntary contributions following the cutting of the NHS and local government grants that previously covered a small percentage of our running costs. Please help their work by fundraising, volunteering or donating money or goods, or by visiting their shop in Church Passage, just off the High Street, Barnet.

Cherry Lodge CC welcomes everyone to join them in their interesting and varied programme of events – check their programme on their website by clicking on image below. A list of events are regularly advertised in their Monthly Programme, Newsletters, at the Cherry Lodge Centre and in their High Street, Barnet shop.
