We thank you and are thinking of you

Dear Ark supporters

I hope that you and your family and friends are keeping well in these challenging times.

As we approach Christmas, and the end of a year that has been like no other in recent memory, on behalf of all at Ark Cancer Centre Charity, I want to send you seasonal greetings, and to thank you for your ongoing support. I also want to say that we are all thinking of you. We know that this Christmas will be unlike any we have experienced, and that for many people, it will be a particularly difficult and challenging time.
