Beatson Cancer Charity

We are delighted to welcome back Beatson Cancer Charity for their second Kiltwalk of the year! They’re joining us in Edinburgh, where they will be taking over Pit Stop 1.

Over the last five years Beatson Cancer Charity has been supporting people affected by cancer, every step of the way. They make the journey easier by transforming the way cancer care is funded and delivered. With your help, Beatson Cancer Charity can continue to provide wellbeing services, as well as fund clinical specialists, vital research and education, to invest in a better future for cancer patients and their families for years to come.

As more and more people are living with cancer, Beatson Cancer Charity are proud to provide comprehensive wellbeing and workplace support.

“The Wellbeing Centre is such a positive, uplifting place that it helped my outlook and in turn helped with my recovery.” – Patient supported at the Wellbeing Centre

There is a wide range of support available at Beatson Cancer Charity’s Wellbeing Centre; from complementary therapies, such as podiatry and massage, to hairdressing and wig fitting. These services, amongst others, are available for inpatients and outpatients who might be dealing with the side-effects of cancer treatment, such as hair loss, stress or aches and pains. The Wellbeing Centre itself, based on the fourth floor of The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre, is a retreat away from the hospital wards.

Beatson Cancer Charity have been well represented by their walkers at all four Kiltwalks this year.
Their services extend to include workplace support for people who are balancing cancer treatment and a job. Our Specialist Health and Work team can help to advise people on their rights at work, or help to communicate with their employers and work out the best plan of action for the person.

As well as supporting people and their families throughout a cancer diagnosis, Beatson Cancer Charity also helps to fund vital, life-changing cancer research and clinical specialist posts.
