The South East Cancer Help Centre’s (SECHC) Chairman, Jennifer Mollett, said “Dame June Whitfield had been a supporter of SECHC for over 25 years: first as a Patron, and then as our President. Everyone looked forward to June’s visits to the Centre where she would make sure that she talked to as many cancer patients, carers and volunteers as possible. She was happy to help SECHC in any way she could and often helped raise SECHC’s profile in the local area by attending our major events. One highlight was when she helped demonstrate Tai Chi to, then London Mayor, Boris Johnson when he visited our Purley Centre. We cannot thank her enough for the joy she brought us all.
“We will all miss her quiet strength and support and our thoughts are with her family at this very sad time.”
