The Lavender Trust is the Mayor of Lewisham’s chosen charity and Lewisham Council has been raising funds for the Trust since its launch in 1998.
The Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care was established to raise money specifically to fund information and support for younger women with breast cancer. It is the only fund in the UK dedicated to addressing the particular needs of this age group.
The Trust was founded by former Lewisham Councillor, Beth Wagstaff, who died from the disease aged 39 and Justine Picardie, whose sister, Ruth, died from the disease aged 32.
Information about breast health, and what changes to look and feel for, can be found on the Breast Cancer Care website
