The Hub is staffed by Olive Tree Support Worker, Harpinder Bilkhu (pictured above with volunteer, Penny Kennedy), assisted by a full-time administrator and a small team of volunteers.   The Olive Tree Information Hub will provide a central point for local cancer patients and their families to access information about local and national cancer services and will also offer an opportunity to discuss any help needed. You can access help from the Hub team by calling 01403 627240 or emailing horsham@olivetreecancersupport.org.uk .

We are starting our programme of support services in Horsham with two group workshops at Horsham Hospital; Pranic Healing on Monday 30th September 2 - 4 p.m. and Yoga on Friday 11th October 11.30 a.m. - 12.30 p.m.  Please contact the Hub team to book a place.

Many cancer patients from Horsham and the surrounding area have benefited from the services at the Olive Tree in Crawley over the years and will continue to be welcome in Crawley until such time as we are able to provide more services in Horsham.  Details of the ever-increasing range of complementary therapies, support groups, emotional support, wellness activities and workshops on offer at the Olive Tree in Crawley will also be available via the Hub.

The newly appointed Olive Tree Fundraising Manager, Ava Harding, will also be based at the Hub.  The Olive Tree relies almost entirely on fundraising and donations in order to provide its valuable services to local people affected by cancer.  We are grateful to the many wonderful people who have donated money or raised funds for us in all sorts of ways over the years to enable us to continue our work.  If you are interested in fundraising for the Olive Tree, please contact Ava.
