A special welcome to anyone newly affected by cancer

We are conscious of the uncertainty, worry and loneliness you may be feeling, whether you are a patient or carer, through the additional isolation caused by the pandemic.  So do come to one of our meetings and enjoy the benefit of mutual support and social interaction with those who understand. 

If you would like to know more before you come, please call us on 07739 934524. You can hear more about what is on offer at our free support meetings and the range of free social outings we provide.

In the meantime, why not try our fun seated exercise and relaxation sessions. You can access these at home using your tablet or laptop, via the therapy tab above.  If you do, then please let us know what you think via the feedback tab or the email link above

Best wishes to you all; we look forward to seeing you.
