Sound Waves is a hit in first six months!

It started as a way to keep the Trust community connected when the country was in strict lockdown back in the spring. But since then, our Sound Waves podcast has established itself as a weekly 'must listen', bringing young people, experts and the Trust team together to chat about the issues that make the biggest difference in recovery after cancer.

Since launching in April, Sound Waves has been downloaded 1,600 times! THANK YOU FOR LISTENING!

The soothing Scottish lilt of host, Scott - who doubles up as our Communications Officer in Largs - has guided us through 19 Sound Waves episodes (so far) as young people, experts and the Trust team have shared their experiences and insight on the issues that matter in recovery.

We've explored isolation in lockdown, mental health and wellbeing in a pandemic, understanding survivor’s guilt, perceptions of body image and how it changed after treatment, and reflections on living with and rebuilding lives after sarcoma and blood cancer diagnoses.

Volunteers and fundraisers have talked about what inspires them, and why others should follow in their footsteps, as they fondly recall the smiles, laughs, and some tears that playing their part in the Trust brings.

The Trust team - including CEO Frank three times - have also gathered on Sound Waves to explain some of the tough decisions that have had to be made in a difficult year, as well as launching our first ever Virtual Summer and looking ahead to 2021 and what we hope that will bring.

Sound Waves has been a fantastic way of staying connected during this most arduous of years, and it has taken off in a way that's beyond our wildest dreams. There are so many stories to be told, and we can’t wait to hear every single one of them.
