Supporting and empowering young women through cancer


Victoria’s Promise continues to support as many young women as we can during these unprecedented times.

Whilst we have had to suspend all of our in person support services, we have reacted quickly by assigning funds to organising a selection of webinars that bring our young women together online where they can listen to experts speak on a number of topics as well as interact with each other and have a catch-up. We will continue to run as many webinars as we can, as well as turning some of our in person support services to 1-2-1 video appointments where these are feasible, such as counselling and nutrition appointments.

We have, of course, been hit hard with so many fundraising events being cancelled and estimate the loss over the initial 3 month period of the pandemic being in the region of £34,000. We have, therefore made as many cost saving cuts as we can and still continue offering our young women all the support we can. Should the ability to run an event, or our supporters continue to be unable to participate in their various fund raising challenges in the following quarter we will have to undergo another review – but let’s all remain optimistic that get together will become possible again before the summer is out.

We are very aware that every person has been hit in one way or another in the last few weeks, and unexpected changes and challenges thrown at you. If, however, you are able to make a donation – perhaps donate what you would have spent on coffees, lunches or travel in a week – we will be enormously grateful. As they say ‘every penny helps’- just as every support we continue to offer our young women makes a difference to the additional challenges they are facing during these testing times.

Our thanks to the following 2 organisations for their support they have shown us and much appreciated funding to help us:

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation through their Emergency Funding @HIWCF @NatEmergTrust the #NetCoronavirusAppeal

Unum through their COVID-19 Emergency Funding.

Thank you for your on going support – together we are stronger.

Fiona, CEO

Alex Eastman, Victoria's Promise Co-Founder

“With 1 in 2 of us estimated to develop cancer, 1 in 4 adults obese and mental health issues rising rapidly, especially in the work place, it has never been more important to understand how to safeguard yourself and those that are important to you.”

Ellen, Head of Marketing, Reassured Ltd

“I found it really useful to learn how a bad diet and lifestyle can impact your health both now and in the future. Being in my 20’s, it’s easy to think ‘because I’m young, I’ll be fine’ but actually being part of the seminar helped me understand that investing in my health and fuelling my body well now, means that I’m less likely to suffer any illnesses later in life – and if I do, my immune system will be strong and healthy enough to try and fight it off! I’m really pleased that I took the time to learn more and am enjoying taking control of my diet and lifestyle!!”
