AS WE start the new year, I felt it was the perfect opportunity for me to give my thanks to our brilliant community for the support they continue to give us.

We have achieved a lot that we are proud of; our research has led to discoveries like Tamoxifen, a drug used to treat millions of cancer patients worldwide, we have launched two mobile cancer support units that take support to the heart of communities across Wales and our Sing with Us choirs support over 600 people affected by cancer every week.

One thing that has remained constant is the support for our charity shops in the local community. The services we provide to cancer patients and their families across Wales would simply not be possible without it.

We all sometimes get that one present that we already have, so why not pop in and see us in one of our shops, donate your unwanted Christmas gifts and give them a new home? We’d love to see you and say a big thank you for your continued support.

On behalf of everyone at Tenovus, a big thank you and a very happy 2014.

Sue Hayes Retail area manager Tenovus
