Gunnell champions charity Cancer Support UK

Olympic champion and health and wellbeing advocate Sally Gunnell OBE is to support national cancer charity Cancer Support UK.

Gunnell’s work with the charity will focus on helping it achieve its mission to help those impacted by cancer in the workplace.

“Since my introduction to the excellent work being carried out by Cancer Support UK I have been impressed by the quality of the services provided and I am now acutely aware of the huge need for people affected by cancer to receive more emotional support,” commented Gunnell. “I am therefore delighted to announce my involvement with this important charity.”

Gunnell has become the charity’s latest workplace cancer support ambassador, having undertaken a specialist training session covering the different aspects of cancer, treatment, side effects and the emotional and physical impact. She has joined a growing number of ambassadors developing key skills such as active listening, empathy and the importance of language.
