Gainsborough Cancer Support GroupBack to Support
Our group is a supportive, inclusive group for people who are/have been affected by cancer in any way. We meet once a month for a tea, coffee and chat session to share experiences and offer each other support. There is a Macmillan representative at each meeting.
The group meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month, 10am-12pm, at The Venue, Roses Sport Ground.
You can find more information about cancer services and support in Lincolnshire on the Connect to Support website here.
This is good for wellbeing because
- It offers people affected by cancer to chat informally about their worries with people who have had similar experiences.
- It has a Macmillan representative to signpost people on for further help.
- It boosts morale through sharing experiences and being helped, and given the chance to help others.
Coming to the group has changed my life because I am with people who know exactly how I feel. I can say what I want and they understand without me having to explain. I can talk about my worries with people who aren't my family and who have felt the same fear as me.
