About – Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust

The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust was launched to help those touched by cancer.

The Charity is all about you and how we can help you deal with your cancer journey.

Our Story

The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust knows how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything. Everyone knows somebody who has been touched by this terrible illness.

Team Solan is here to support you and help you take back some control in your life.

No one should have to face cancer alone. Team Solan is a charity which was created to help people affected by cancer. Our aim is to help improve the quality of life of those affected by cancer in County Durham. Based in Spennymoor we provide help and advice and treatment rooms for people who need to escape from or relax even for a few hours from the turmoil that cancer can bring. We can help with small grants to help you to purchase equipment which may improve yours or a family member’s quality of life. We can also provide a small grant if you would like to enjoy a short break or a day out or even a visit to a beautician or hairdresser.


“Mark and his team have been truly amazing helping us as a family to cope with the devastating news we received August 2018 for my big brother. You always think you wouldn’t see yourself in these situations but unfortunately for us this isn’t the case! I can’t thank you all enough for been there through this awful time for me and my family! Don’t know what we would do without you guys!”
