Drop-in Sessions

Our first drop in session was on Monday 1st October at Scott Rowe meeting room at Axminster Hospital. We were delighted to see new faces and be able to offer refreshments and a friendly chat. One lady said she was so pleased to be able to have a local support group as she had been travelling to Exeter. October is breast cancer awareness month and we had lots of information to display. We will be featuring different cancer types throughout the year and are arranging some specific meetings looking at lifestyle and other relevant topics.

Dates for your diary :

October 1st to 31st
October is breast cancer awareness month. This is an annual international health campaign organised by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. 
27th November
There will be a CPD (Continued Professional Development) course for all our therapists on 27th November. We are delighted that Julia Williams will be delivering this session.  The main focus of this will be the lymphatic system. We will be discussing how to deliver treatments to those who are living with or beyond cancer. Please note, this session is by invitation only due to the specialist nature of the content. However, we do welcome all our volunteers to attend if they feel this would help them in their various volunteering roles. 
Join us for a fun-filled quiz night on Friday 16th November at Uplyme Scout Hall, Rhode Lane, Uplyme, DT7 3TX. 6.30pm for 7pm start. Teams of 4-8, £3 entry fee per head. There will be refreshments available, a raffle, and a prize for the winning team! Numbers are limited, so please let us know if you’d like to attend.
