HEALTH AND WELFARE

The Mary How Trust is a local charity which gives free health screenings to spot cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We make no charge, simply inviting donations: we want to give everyone the chance to benefit from a health screening.

Mary How died of bowel cancer aged 46. Earlier detection of this disease could have saved her life, and so the Trust was set up in 1988 in Mary's memory, to give others the chance of free health screenings.

We test for bowel cancer, prostate cancer, abdominal aortic aneurysm and other serious illnesses like diabetes and heart disease. If results reveal abnormalities, you and your GP can take immediate action. Find out more about the Mary How Trust at our website here.

Mr Smith's Mary How Trust bowel cancer led to an urgent colonoscopy. Mr Smith was diagnosed with bowel cancer, but this early intervention meant his treatment was completely successful.

We receive no funding from the NHS. Donations, fundraising and gifts in wills sustain our work. Our wonderful supporters make our service possible - helping us to transform people's lives.

Our Film Society at West Chiltington Village Hall is a popular monthly event. You'll find more details here on the News Page .

"This was a lifeline that I couldn't get elsewhere. I am very grateful."

The Mary How Trust is where it is today - and where it will be tomorrow - because of strong support from the local community. Together, we are giving people a healthier future!
