One of the best known charities in Wales that gives advice, support and help people living with cancer and their families is Tenvous Cancer Wales.
Tenvous Cancer Care is a non for profit organisation that offers and gives advice, support and help people living with cancer and their familes. Tenvous has been running for 75 years and in that time it has given advice, hope and help to thousands of people with cancer in Wales. As a charity, they dont get any government or local authority funding, and all their funds comes from public donations. One of the ways that Tenvous raises money for the valuable work they do is through their charity shops which are located all over Wales.
