SAILING charity Sail 4 Cancer has set up a new office in Fareham to help families in the area.

Sail 4 Cancer takes people affected by cancer on sailing days and adventures to get away from the stress of living with the disease.

The charity has now opened an office in Park Gate to better help families in the area.

Fundraisers are now looking for people to raise cash by running the BUPA London run later this year.

Fundraising manager Lizette van Niekerk said: ‘Families who live with cancer experience enormous stress.

‘From the moment someone is diagnosed, family life is severely affected and often financial strain is added to an already heavy burden.

‘We give families the opportunity to spend time together away from the stress of their everyday lives.’

Last year, Sail 4 Cancer helped 400 people and this year they hope to send even more away on trips.
