The Chartwell Cancer Trust is a vitally important local charity – with an increasingly regional reach.

For the past 15 years, the charity has been raising funds to make improvements to cancer care for patients, families and medical staff across South London, North Kent and East Surrey aiming to change the lives of both adults and children suffering from cancer and leukaemia. Through a variety of fundraising initiatives, the charity has helped to transform healthcare and services across the region by providing funds to improve and enhance patient care.

The charity provides assistance to oncology patients of all ages and staff teams at The Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich, King’s College Hospital, Southwark, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital and Croydon University Hospital.

We operate from a small office in Tatsfield, Kent run by a small dedicated friendly team and supported by a growing number of volunteers.


A huge part of the fundraising we do is through our charity shops which rely on the generosity of local residents and supporters. These shops are lively hubs on high streets across South London and Kent, where people can connect and share while they pick up treasures and bargains.

All proceeds help us reach our fundraising targets allowing us to provide direct support for oncology patients and families, as well as much needed enhancements to NHS facilities and equipment.
