About Us

The Sara Lee Trust

A registered charity, The Sara Lee Trust was set up in memory of Sara Lee who died aged 32 from cancer. It was Sara’s vision as a result of using complementary therapies during her two year battle with cancer, that a Trust be set up, to provide therapies free of charge, to people in Hastings and Rother, living through cancer and other life threatening illness.  Sara’s parents with the support of her friends carried out her wish and fifteen years on the Trust is continuing to keep that vision alive.  The Trust offers a full and wide ranging programme offering our patients access to:
