Giving back to the local community – The Triangle Centre in Tavistock

Triangle centreOver the last two decades Broadley Speaking has built a reputation for helping businesses develop new sales opportunities globally.

During this time Broadley Speaking has built a reputation by giving back to both national and local charities. A while back we decided that instead of focusing on one nominated charity we would take a “little and often” approach focusing on local charities.

We seek out local charities to help. Finding local charities is a lot harder than you might think!! A simple Google search doesn’t always work.

Our most recent chosen charity was The Triangle Centre in Tavistock. The Centre is staffed by experienced cancer nurses, therapists and trained volunteers. They are there to help cancer patients and their families navigate through their treatment and recovery. – linked to Mustard Tree Macmillan information and support Centre at Derriford Hospital, Plymouth.

The moment we stepped in the door on Friday we were greeted with a warm welcome, cup of tea and even a biscuit! The Triangle Centre in Tavistock acts as a drop in center to help cancer patients and their families navigate through their treatment and recovery.

We were lucky enough to spend some time speaking with the volunteers and patients to find out why the Triangle Centre in Tavistock is so important to them. Without the Triangle Centre in Tavistock patients and their families would have to travel over an hour each way into Plymouth for treatment and support. Having somewhere local has taken a lot of stress and pressure away.

We then had the pleasure to meet Lucy Figg who is one of the cancer specialists at the center. Lucy is a wonderful woman who gives so much support to so many people at a really tough time, but let still remains smiley and positive. Lucy does some amazing work supporting cancer sufferers and their families from diagnosis, through treatment and recovery. Providing a real life line to the people of the local area. From the small time we spent with Lucy and the team it was clear that everyone really goes above and beyond to help where they can.

Even in the small time we spent there on Friday it was clear to see great work going on.
