Our Charity of the Year
This year we are supporting WOLO Foundation
In 2021, we are delighted to be supporting WOLO Foundation as our official Charity of the Year!
Wolo Foundation helps families living in Sussex through their cancer journeys. They support them in practical ways to make their day-to-day lives easier. They work with local businesses and communities to offer families a wealth of services to support them through their diagnosis, treatment and beyond.
Wolo registered as a charity in March 2020. Set up by a Seaford family following a cancer diagnosis of their own; they discovered a real lack of services within the support networks they were directed to following diagnosis. With treatment now completed and life getting back to normal, they set up Wolo Foundation to help fill the void they so needed - by offering practical support and services available within the local community, to help other families affected by cancer. They are working hard to establish relationships with local businesses, residents and volunteers around Sussex to offer families a wealth of services to support them at what is, a very stressful time.
Every cancer journey is different, and so the support Wolo can offer varies hugely. Wolo work hard to support everyone in a family to help make living with the disease, that little bit easier. Having something to look forward to or jobs done that they no longer need to worry about, gives them more opportunities to focus on spending time together, and to make the most of each other. Wolo stands for ‘We Only Live Once’, and it is something they strongly believe in - to make the most of every moment - as life is so precious.
