The Mulberry Centre, the independent charity and award-winning cancer information and support centre based on the grounds of West Middlesex University Hospital (WMUH), has received a boost with the news of continuing support from a local business.

Feltham-based Russell Finex, which specialises in fine mesh separation technology has reaffirmed its commitment to centre by selecting them as their Charity of the Year Partner for the third successive time.

Throughout the last year, employees at Russell Finex organised and participated in various fundraising initiatives from charity runs to 77km cycle rides, a Christmas raffle and many more.

The funds raised will provide crucial support to The Mulberry Centre, a charitable organisation dedicated to providing practical and emotional support to individuals facing the challenges of cancer. With services ranging from counselling and complementary therapies to support groups and workshops. Its team of over 130 volunteers, together filling 158 roles, enable the centre to offer services free of charge to anyone who needs them, while contributing to the sense of community at the Centre. It is wholly dependent on donations for its operation.

Raj Athwal, Executive Director of The Mulberry Centre said: “It gives us great pleasure to announce that Russell Finex has agreed to collaborate with us, to raise money and awareness for The Mulberry Centre for a third year. We can help those impacted by cancer deal with the stress of a cancer diagnosis or a bereavement, but we can only do this with the help of supporters like Russell Finex. We are appreciative of Russell Finex’s entire staff and their support for our charity.”
