Our Story

‘Our aim at the Old Mill is to provide physical and emotional support for people living with cancer’

Sarah set up The Old Mill Foundation in 2003 following the loss of her husband to cancer. Realising there was a need for support in the community she decided to open her home and salon, providing treatments and support free of charge.

The Old Mill started in Penclawdd, Swansea with 2 volunteers, but has since expanded to 3 centres across South and West Wales and over 50 volunteers.

We also have a charity shop in Haverfordwest and a not for profit health store in Port Talbot.

We achieve our aims by offering a wide range of services, including
complementary therapies, emotional support, diet and nutrition, manual lymphatic drainage, scar tissue massage, work shops and on line Tai Chi and meditation.

Our volunteers have a multitude of skills and a high level of training in cancer care. This enables us to provide the personal needs of each individual who attends the Centre.

Caring for a loved one can be a difficult and stressful time and carers can often need just as much support.

It can be a great relief for the person with the diagnosis to know a carer can receive therapies too.

How You Can Help

Every penny we receive goes directly towards providing this service. Every day we provide a warm, clean environment for people to receive therapies. Every massage oil, tea bag and clean towel comes at a price. That’s why any donations are vital to fund us to help people with cancer.

Donate To Our Cancer Charity
We value every donation no matter how small. Every penny makes a difference to those on a cancer journey.

A legacy to The Old Mill Foundation is a promise to ensure we can continue to relieve the distress of cancer for years to come. A promise that will see us provide supportive holistic therapies and helpful information with the hope of improving peoples wellbeing whatever their diagnosis.

Every gift in every will, however large or small, makes a difference.
