FACT - Fighting all cancers together

Read more ...


The charity FACT is based in Swalwell, Newcastle Upon Tyne and is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year.

FACT has 3 main areas to its work: 

Initially, FACT was set up with the aim of building partnerships with health professionals, statutory bodies, support groups and services, charities and voluntary organisations.  To help strengthen the network of support currently available in the area and to make it easier to access support at a time when people least feel like looking for help.

Secondly, Very early on, when we could not find what people were looking for we started to fill the gaps ourselves – either as a one off for an individual, or by developing a programme of regularly accessible support.  And so our direct support to those diagnosed with cancer, their family, carers and friends came about.  FACT now offers direct regular help, support and social opportunities for people going through the cancer journey.

Thirdly, FACT has gone on to develop Education and Awareness programmes and events delivered into schools, colleges and places of work.  We have an established Primary schools programme on ‘SAFE IN THE SUN’ and one on ‘LOVE YOUR LUNGS’.  Two more programmes are currently being developed … and we are working on converting these themes into programmes suitable for secondary schools.  We go into public buildings and places of work – either with bespoke presentations or with a range of health and wellbeing materials, and information on signs and symptoms of several cancers.”

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
