M&G supported our lymphoedema clinic at Caritas House

At the end of 2014 M&G contacted St Christopher’s wanting to support one of our projects. They chose to support the Bromley Lymphoedema Clinic, based at Caritas House, by helping cover the cost of the equipment needs and pledged a grant of £6,618.

Lymphoedema is characterised by swelling of the limbs or parts of the body and causes acute discomfort. We help patients manage their condition through treatments in one-to-one appointments and in support groups which help them feel less alone, share their experiences and learn tips and ideas about how to cope. As the only clinic of its nature in Bromley, we were able to extend the service to patients beyond those being helped by the hospice, making a difference to those in our community.
