Paula has worked at the Sussex Cancer Centre for 14 years and oversees the day to day administration of the centre, including outpatient, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, receptions and bookings teams.
Paula said " I want to raise money for the Sussex Cancer Fund because they support the centre and cancer patients in so many ways. The SCF funded car park is an example of their support for patients, which appears simple but is vitally important to our patients. I see the amazing work they do every single day and in return, I would like to support them in what is a very difficult time for small charities."
Paula has supported the Sussex Cancer Fund by taking part in several events including abseiling down the i360 last year.
Julia Lenton, Fund Manager said “we are urging all those to donate that can, we have extremely low overheads compared to the big national charities so you know that even a few pennies could help. We are also very transparent and able to show our supporters exactly where and how any money is spent”.
