We are an independent charity that relies upon donations and fundraising to allow us to carry out our vital work. We simply could not do what we do without your continuing support. Every donation is appreciated, however small or large. All donations help towards maintaining and improving our services and our ability to support cancer patients and their families, friends and carers. Thank you for your support.

If you are celebrating a significant birthday or anniversary you might like to consider asking your friends to make a donation to the Olive Tree in lieu of presents/flowers. Likewise, we are very grateful for donations made in lieu of flowers at funeral services.
