Neil Townsend CEO Cancer Care

President Richard Parsons welcomed Neil who was the guest speaker at the meeting on 1st September.  It was an extremely thought provoking talk outlining all the aspects of the responsibilities of what his job entails. He paid tribute to Malcom McMurray life long President and founder of the charity 33 years ago. Today it has 21 part time employees, 32 counsellors and a large number of volunteers. Since its beginning over 20,000 people have been helped from the range of varied therapies offered. A priority now is to improve the counselling available for bereaved children.  It was encouraging to learn that 75% of people diagnosed with cancer these days will survive.
