Dimbleby Cancer Care was established in 1966 following the death from testicular cancer of Britain’s best loved broadcaster Richard Dimbleby at the age of 52. The charity focusses on supporting people living with cancer, their families and carers, during and beyond cancer treatment, through information and advice, practical and psychological support, and complementary therapies to help relieve anxiety, stress and many of the debilitating side effects of cancer treatment.

Since 2013 the charity has been actively fundraising and has now established a core calendar of fundraising activity. In 2018 we launched a brand new national online resource to help anyone in the UK access care and support services in the local area, Cancer Care Map.
