WESSEX Cancer Trust has appointed a new trustee to help bring in more supporters and boost donations.

Peter Boucher brings two decades of sales and marketing experience to the charity and, having lost his own mum to cancer, knows only too well how devastating the effects of the disease can be.

Wessex Cancer Trust (WCT) is the only regional cancer charity that supports people with all types of cancer.

Peter said: “WCT adds important extra layers through its wide range of resources.

"We don’t replace other organisations, but when you are on that journey of life affected by cancer, you, your family, friends and colleagues need access to every bit of local support and information.”
