THE MARY HOW TRUST. Registered Charity No. 1122393
Following Mary How’s death from bowel cancer, the Mary How Trust was formed in 1988 by her husband and GP.
Their goal: to make health screening available to men and women from all walks of life, regardless of their ability to pay.
Today, we undertake over 1000 screenings each year. We receive no funding from the NHS.
Our screening rooms and our charity shop are in Pulborough, West Sussex.
BUT you do not have to live in West Sussex to book an appointment – everyone is welcome!
In 2005, readers of the West Sussex County Times voted the Mary How Trust the most outstanding charity in the South Downs area.
In 2006, the BBC Radio 4 programme, Case Notes, featured the Trust as a remarkable charity and interviewed one of the clients whose life had been saved following a Mary How Trust screening. Listen to the programme.
In 2007-8, the Chairman of Horsham District Council, Cllr Roger Paterson, chose the Trust to be his Charity of the Year.
In 2009 the Trust celebrated its 21st birthday. A series of fundraising events and activities marked this special anniversary.
