Our purpose is to provide respite and financial support to as many  individuals and families as possible within Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire . We support individuals and their families of all ages with any type of cancer at any stage . We also support those living beyond cancer who find themselves in financial difficulty as a result of losing a loved one.

For more information on how we can help click here 

We are 100% volunteer led, including our Board of Trustees. This means there are no salaries and minimum overheads, so almost all funds raised go directly to helping those in their time of need.

We also know how it feels to lose loved ones to cancer. We’ve all been directly affected and, as such, can empathise and truly understand the needs of our beneficiaries. If you’re looking for a local charity that supports local people with almost all of your donations going back into the community, then please consider making Lasting Memories one of your charities of choice.

There are many ways you can donate or fundraise on our behalf. You can find out more here

Below are examples of how your donations have  helped local families. We’re already making a difference and, with your continued support, we can help improve the wellbeing and quality of life for more individuals and their families across our local area.
