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.
Our mission, starting with young women, is to make certain that every individual going through cancer, is provided with personalised support and treatment services that best increase the chance of survival and quality of life.
To be a progressive force for cancer prevention; researching and communicating information that will drastically reduce the number of cancer occurrences and recurrences.
“The support from Victoria’s Promise has changed everything in my life. I couldn’t imagine what my life would be like now had I not found Victoria’s Promise. The needs that Victoria’s Promise meet, are absolutely huge.”
We work alongside the NHS to do all we can to maximise patient wellbeing
We believe in challenging cancer on three very crucial fronts. Firstly with prevention; with powerful research, sharing information, education and pioneering preventative methods, Victoria’s Promise aim to massively reduce the cancer incidence in the U.K. Secondly with support through cancer; we provide critical and impactful quality of life, physical and emotional supportive services to carry the individuals through their cancer diagnosis and beyond. Thirdly prevention of recurrence; Victoria’s Promise actively engages in aiding the reduction of recurrence and supporting recovery from cancer and cancer treatment.
