The year 2022 brought its own challenges for Sarcoma UK. Hot on the heels of the impact of Covid-19, the charity continued to adapt while delivering a new and ambitious strategy.
This report highlights the impact of the charity’s work and activities; a demonstrable difference that has only become a reality with everyone working together for the same outcome. Sarcoma UK has gone from strength to strength, ending its tenth anniversary year with a growth in income and an increase in funding for world-class research. It has continued to provide much-needed support for those affected by sarcoma. The Support Line alone helped hundreds of people – a 14 percent increase on the previous year. The charity has transformed the experience of patients – of which I am one – with its support and information.
Although I did not know it then, my sarcoma was removed the same day Sarcoma UK officially became a charity in 2011. This was a time when good quality information for patients was woefully limited. As a former Chair, I have seen the far-reaching impact of Sarcoma UK’s work up close. With your help, I know the charity can continue to make a difference to people’s lives.
Long-term supporter and Ambassador for Sarcoma UK
