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.

The trustees meet every week to discuss how they can support people financially. If you would like support from Team Solan please visit our How We Help page to see how you can apply for a small grant. Please be aware we can only allow one application per family in a calendar year.

If you would like to support Team Solan please visit our Fundraising Page or purchase some Merchandise to help us to help KO Cancer.

  • “Just a few words, for a special man. Who helps people because he can? He is a hero of that there is no doubt.”


  • “I cannot express how much we as a family want to thank you for your kindness and support. The positive difference you make to families who have been touched by cancer is immeasurable.”
