April 2018


Welcome to;

Headstart's Head & Neck Cancer Support Group website for Kent & Sussex.


They've gone and done it again !!!!!

A wonderful charity group who are committed to doing everything they can to

fight Cancer have just donated the amazing sum of £2000 to Headstart.

Not so long ago they presented us with another donation of £1000.

Headstart is indebted to their quite incredible generosity.

Find out more about Penquins Against Cancer ........ here

In their own words this is what they say what they are about.

"Penguins Against Cancer is a charity set up on 6th Nov 2013 simply to combat cancer.

Its founders were drawn from Guy's Hospital Penguins, the oldest team in the

oldest rugby club in the world, but now its members come from a wide range of ages,

backgrounds and professions, all uniting to support Cancer Research, Cancer Treatment

and Hospices.  Penguins Against Cancer has no start-up or running costs:

every penny donated goes to the fight against cancer."

As always, the most recent news is on our Headstart events  and Latest news and info pages.
