Geographical remit: 


Star Throwers is a cancer charity based in Wymondham, Norfolk that supports and empowers people affected by cancer. We help cancer patients and their families to take back control of their cancer journey by raising awareness and understanding of their treatment options, including whether there are any alternative / non-conventional treatments or clinical trials that are worth exploring.  We also offer holistic supportive services to support their and their loved ones' wellbeing, including complementary therapies, counselling, nutrition / diet advice, and lymphoedema support, from diagnosis to during treatment and after treatment.

All of our services are completely free of charge but this is only possible thanks to the support of individuals and organisations donating, fundraising and volunteering to help us to deliver these services and continue to improve the wellbeing of those affected by cancer.


We offer:

  • Help with deciding on treatment options by improving awareness and understanding of treatment options, from standard treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapies, to complementary and alternative treatments, and clinical trials
  • Complementary Therapies including massage, reflexology, reiki, acupuncture, yoga, and hypnotherapy for wellbeing support
  • Lymphoedema Advice and Support for people with lymphoedema or those at risk of developing the condition
  • Counselling and Wellbeing sessions at diagnosis, during treatment, in recovery, and for those in bereavement
  • Nutrition and Diet Advice through talks, demonstrations, and workshops on ways to support yourself nutritionally when faced with a cancer diagnosis. Can also provide a balanced view on conflicting information regarding different anti-cancer diets and foods
  • Support for Carers - all of the services above are available for carers too
  • A Homely, friendly Centre - situated by a serene garden area.
