Breast cancer body aims to expand UK centres for patients

The Haven Trust is rolling out an expansion programme that will see it opening breast cancer assessment centres across the UK.

The Haven Trust runs one centre in Fulham, London, but plans to open a second in Hereford at the end of next year.

Although it has not set specific targets, the charity hopes to raise the funds to launch a string of Havens that will provide complementary treatment to women suffering from breast cancer.

It will launch fundraising events in individual communities and also target local trust and foundations to raise the funds to build new centres.

"We aim to open Havens when and where they are needed," said Wendy Smith, development director at the Haven Trust.

"We're looking to develop our fundraising strategy so we will be able to communicate with local communities and make sure that as many people as possible have access to our services."
