People We've Helped
We can’t do it without you!
As a charity, The Lavender Touch relies heavily on donations to provide support and complementary therapies to cancer patients and their families living in the Scottish Borders.
Each year, we need to raise in excess of £75,000 to achieve this – and that number is increasing all the time, as word spreads and requests for our treatments grow.
In fact, we’ve received 99% positive feedback so far, which has helped to raise awareness of our services, but also means we need your support more than ever.
