The Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief was formed in 1983 by Jurat Dr John & Mrs Jackie Bulstrode to provide support to cancer sufferers by supplying items and services not provided by the Guernsey States under the Health and Social Services schemes.
In the early days we provided the £119,000 for the island’s first Gamma camera to help in the diagnosis of cancer at the PEH. In 1997 the Society handed over to the Board of Health a Day Hospice, Bulstrode House, which it had built in the hospital grounds at the cost of over £340,000. H.S.S.D. then provided all the staff and running costs and the Society provided volunteers to help the patients with drinks, hospital lunches and friendly chats.
All of our funds are used for the benefit of islanders
How can we help?
The main role of the Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief is to provide assistance to cancer sufferers and their families when the extra financial burdens are beyond the capabilities of the family.
