Welcome to CREST Cancer Support
Many cancer charities support just the patient, but CREST believes that families and carers often suffer as much, so we are here for them too.
CREST is different because it is a local charity run entirely by volunteers who give their time and expertise for free.
Waitrose Community Matters
support CREST in January
We are very pleased to tell you that the Waitrose store in Staines has chosen CREST to be one of their three Community Charities for January. Everyone who shops in the Staines store will be given a green token and they can vote for us by putting their token in our box in the store. Each month every Waitrose branch shares a donation of £1,000 between their three local good causes and the more tokens we get, the bigger the donation we receive. Please tell your friends and ask them to support us with their green token.
Ashford Horticultural Society Open Gardens
Members of the Ashford Horticultural Society opened their gardens to the public this summer. Visitors could see the varied and interesting gardens, buy some plants and have tea and cakes in the sunshine. All the hard work that went into the event was rewarded by takings in excess of £900, which they have kindly donated to CREST. We are very grateful to them all.
Our visit to Loseley House in June
Our visit to the beautiful sixteenth century Loseley House was a great success with tours of the house and garden . Mr Michael More-Molyneux, the current owner of the Loseley estate and new Patron of our charity, came to welcome us at lunchtime.
Our visit to Denbies Vineyard in May
This CREST social event proved enormously enjoyable as the Denbies Estate offers not only the story of British wine making, but amazing views over the beautiful North Downs. We enjoyed tours of the vineyard and cellars and still had plenty of time to visit the shops and restaurants!
Waterways of Shepperton ~ 2016
Louise, Nick and Jade raised a fantastic £205 when they took part in the 10km "Waterways of Shepperton" sponsored walk in May. CREST is very grateful to them and their sponsors.
