I go out on a Tuesday afternoon. I go out to meet some lovely people and have a chat, cup of tea and quite often we have CAKE. How nice is that? The unusual bit about my social afternoon is the reason I am there, I am a volunteer and this group is run by a Cancer Support Centre.
Centres of this type are often set up by an individual who has suffered in some way relating to cancer and usually because there is not enough support outside the clinical environment.
Typically a centre provides a community based welcoming environment where emotional and psychological support is available for people who have been touched by cancer. They offer counselling, advice and information and complementary therapies as well as workshops and exercise classes.
