The Star of the Show

When Support Staffordshire held its 2019 Volunteer Star Awards at Westwood Golf Club, Leek on 13th June, the winner of the most prestigious award – the Lifetime Achievement Award - was unfortunately absent and the audience had to applaud a photo of her. There was a very good reason for this as the winner, Nancy Coates, was celebrating her 100th birthday that very day!

Life with cancer in Staffordshire is still life; we’ll help you live it.

The Cancer Support Programme (CaSP) is a partnership between the Beth Johnson Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support.

We are here to provide links to social, emotional and practical support to adults living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis.

The Beth Johnson Foundation has a long history of providing volunteering opportunities and are looking to recruit and train volunteers to give support to people living with and beyond cancer in Staffordshire.
