Working locally to support anyone affected by cancer

At FORCE Cancer Charity we believe that anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support, face to face and close to home. Since 1987 we have been funding local research and buying equipment to improve patient care. In 2004 we opened our Cancer Support and Information Centre in the grounds of the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital. The Centre is open every weekday, except Bank Holidays, 9:30-4:30 (Wednesdays 6:30) for people needing physical, emotional, psychological and practical support at a difficult time in their lives. We also offer support and information sessions once a week in Okehampton, Tiverton and Honiton. All our services are free. Learn more about our charity

We are saddened to report the sudden death of our patron Martin Cooper. There are no words to express the deep sorrow we feel. Our love, thoughts and sympathy are with his family and we will try to support them in whatever way we can.  

CHRISTMAS CLOSURES: The Centre will be closed from 4:30pm on Friday December 21 until 9:30am on Wednesday January 2. There will be no services in Okehampton, Tiverton or Honiton during that period.

It’s so nice to see so many people getting involved and raising money for a brilliant charity.

It’s A Knockout competitor

It gives you motivation even when the weather’s absolutely terrible that you know you’re doing it for a cause.

We’ve had an absolutely brilliant time, we’ve raised a lot of money for FORCE and we’ve loved every minute of it so thank you very much to everybody for organising it.
