We have a range of events throughout the year. From large events such as our summer and Christmas parties to smaller groups and support to individual families. Many of the events are free and most are subsidised by our fundraising activities. We aim to make our events enjoyable and to enable people to meet with others who are on the same journey. Come and share stories, tips and feel part of things once again. Get in touch:

Please come and join us at Shalford Village Hall (GU4 8BQ) on the third Thursday of every month usually 2.30-4.00 pm. (This can vary due to the speaker’s availability). All are welcome including friends, family and carers. If it feels a bit daunting get in touch and one of the team can meet you beforehand.

Our last session
The charity would like to thank Sue Bond for attending our Shalford Village Hall meeting.
Sue is an aromatherapist and Reiki Practitioner at the Fountain Centre based at the RSCH (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sue explained that Reiki is a type of energy healing. As a complimentary therapy it is sometimes used as a palliative or supportive therapy for people with cancer. It aims to relax you, ease stress and tension and help with well being.
Sue defined aromatherapy as a practice based on the use of aromatic materials, including essential oils. An interesting discussion followed on Olfactory & massage aromatherapy . The scents of certain oils can help to boost mood and promote relaxation. The group found it an interesting and informative discussion.
A thank you to Allan for providing the delicious homemade Victoria Sandwich Cake .
Was there any cake left?
