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.

Police Presentation on Scam Awareness

Last week our St Ives Group were visited by Sgt Caruana and PC Abdul from Cambridgeshire Police. The officers provided a very comprehensive overview and presentation on the sophistication of scams these days.

Members questions were answered and members were provided with ‘The Little Book of Big Scams’, which you can also download here.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Sgt Caruana and PC Abdul for taking our the time to visit us.

We also congratulate and wish the re-elected Mayor Pasco Hussain all the very best in continuing the great work from St Ives Council and his invaluable support for Acorn.

Trustees Wanted!

Acorn are seeking 3 new volunteers with management experience to act as Trustees for the group. These appointments provide a wonderful opportunity for the recently retired person to continue to use their skills to help the local community. However, vacancies are open to anyone with the necessary background and a little time to help this worthwhile local charity.

After a suitable period of induction there are opportunities to be involved with operational aspects of the charity, e.g., promotion, fundraising, social outing arrangements and the Hon Sec role.
