Ark Cancer Centre Charity

For the people, by the people.

Ark Cancer Centre Charity is raising £5million to help fund a unique local cancer treatment centre.

The success of the fundraising campaign will ensure that the centre can provide a range of information, support services and complementary therapies alongside radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments in a calm and uplifting environment.

The cancer treatment centre is largely being funded by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT). It will be built in the Basingstoke area, and will serve the population of the HHFT area, which stretches from Newbury down to Eastleigh and Romsey and includes Basingstoke, Andover, Winchester and Alton.

Patients and user groups have played key roles in designing the new centre which will transform cancer care for those who use it and their loved ones.

This beacon facility will greatly enhance the care and support received by patients and their families throughout their cancer treatment journey.

Don't just take our word for it

The partnership between BIU Group and Ark Cancer Centre Charity is one that is really making a difference.

Merv Rees – Trustee

So far, nearly £40,000 has been raised for Ark as a result of the recycling of items in our branded banks in and around the Basingstoke area – an outstanding result. Thank you to everyone who has helped Ark by recycling clothing, and thank you to all the recycling bank host organisations.

Merv Rees – Trustee

The recycling partnership has been a massive boost to the ongoing campaign to raise awareness of the charity and cancer treatment centre project, and it has resulted in a welcome and regular income stream which will contribute towards the creation of the much-needed unique local cancer centre.

Merv Rees – Trustee

We look forward to the ongoing success of the recycling partnership and campaign, and thank you to everyone who has made a difference by supporting, and getting involved in, it.

Merv Rees – Trustee

We are delighted that BIU has chosen Ark Cancer Centre Charity as one of its charity partners in Hampshire. We are also grateful to the many organisations which have been keen to host banks bearing our branding – it is a great show of support.

The partnership with BIU, which started in August 2016, has provided a real boost to the campaign by raising funds for, and awareness of, the charity’s £5million fundraising appeal and the cancer treatment centre project that this campaign is helping to deliver.

Local residents know that recycling items in BIU banks that carry the Ark Cancer Centre Charity branding is a great way to help the charity, and also to make sure their unwanted items get a new lease of life.
