Walk, run, cycle, swim or back to raise funds for cancer support centre
You can cycle 21 miles to support The Mulberry Centre
The Mulberry Centre in Isleworth has been supporting people with cancer for 21 years.
Since 2001, It has provided services and support to more than 15,000 people.
It remains the only local organisation providing free information and support services for anyone affected by cancer.
One of the people it assisted from its base next to West Middlesex Hospital said, “I was a mess before I came into the Centre. I could not think. I was emotional all the time. I felt I was thrown a lifeline. I knew it would help me understand my emotions. I did not expect to be laughing so much! I found the service extremely helpful. I love coming to the Mulberry Centre because it feels such a safe place to be and exudes calm and care.”
To mark the milestone it is asking for help in raising the £500,000 it needs in charitable donations and grants this year to continue delivering its critical services.
It wants people to take on the 21 Challenge. Walk, run, cycle, swim, or bake, whatever you can do around the number 21 to challenge yourself to celebrate its 21st birthday.
How can you take part in this challenge? You can get the whole family involved and be creative by setting each person their own 21 challenge.
• Start a viral social media campaign by challenging 21 friends to donate to
the campaign and share the details with 21 of their friends.
• Walk around the local park 21 times
• Do 21 chores around the house in 21 days
• Organise an online quiz with 21 friends
• Walk your dog or anyone else’s 21 times

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
