About the organisation

Breast Cancer Haven

Our Breast Cancer Haven London centre has been supporting people through their breast cancer treatment for 19 years. We provide a huge range of free services to those affected by breast cancer including counselling (for friends and family too), support groups, relief from pain caused by chemotherapy treatment by using things like acupuncture, nutritional guidance and money advice services. It costs £1000 to provide the Breast Cancer Haven programme for each Visitor and as we receive no government funding, the fundraising we do is essential.

Calling all savvy eBay sellers!

We need your skills to sell our donations. From beauty products to paintings, if you think you can shift our treasures to raise essential funds for our Breast Cancer Haven London Centre, get in touch!

This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in online retail for a great cause, as well as working in a friendly charity environment.

We are a national charity helping people through the experience of breast cancer. We offer information, counselling and complementary therapies through our welcoming Havens and outreach programme.

We are based in Fulham (soon moving to Kings Cross), and have quite a few donations we need to shift before we move, as the space we’re moving to is smaller.
