Paul Presents : Newbury Cancer Care with Dave Ormrod. Dr Paul Millard founded the Newbury and District Cancer Care Trust in 1984 and led the appeal for funds for the Rainbow Rooms in the Community Hospital. Newbury Cancer Care is an independent charity, founded in 1984 to help local people who have been diagnosed with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. They offer practical help and information to patients and their families living in West Berkshire and are the parent charity for the Rainbow Rooms and the Rosemary Centre at the West Berkshire Community Hospital. From transport to counselling or financial help they offer a variety of help and support Dave Ormrod’s qualifications and early career in computing focused mainly on design and project management in a large multinational, before taking up the I.T. Director role in a large city law firm. After the care and support that Dave’s wife, Lynne, received from the Sue Ryder nurses and Rainbow Room staff in her final weeks and days, Dave was inspired to join NCC as a trustee in early 2020, and took over as Chair in January 2021.
