A quick fundraising update…

We’re pleased to report that we now have collection pots in 32 locations in and around Axminster and Lyme Regis. We’re incredibly grateful to all those businesses who have agreed to have a collection pot at their premises… and look foward to counting the contents in the coming weeks and months. We’ll keep you posted on how much we’re collecting and which businesses they’ve come from. So far, we’ve raised £47 from collection pots at our events and £46.68 from pots at our drop-in sessions.

If you know of anyone who could take a collection pot for us, please email info@axminsterandlymecancersupport.co.uk .

Recommended Reading
We are currently building a library which is available to anyone attending our drop-in sessions. The library contains books on a variety of topics, all of which are aimed at helping people living with and beyond cancer.
At this time of year you may like to consider spending some time to be mindful before enjoying some chocolate!”David Michie demonstrates a fine knack for capturing the essence of this important topic and presenting it in a fun and accessible way. In Mindfulness is Better than Chocolate he perfectly explains what mindfulness is, why it’s important and, most notably, how we can practice and integrate it into our lives. I know for a fact that mindfulness can enhance health and happiness; this book will help any reader become more mindful.”

Supplier Of The Month
When we first looked at hosting our drop-in sessions, we had to decide on a Lyme Regis location – no mean feat in a town as busy as Lyme! So we would like to thank Ali McLoughlin at the Pop Up Kitchen in Broad Street for allowing us the use of her premises free of charge for our sessions in 2018. The Pop Up Kitchen offer a variety of different food and drink options, with a regular vegan kitchen on Mondays and Tuesdays. Their website is regularly updated with new events at www.thepopup.kitchen/  or if you need a venue for a catering event you can contact Ali on 07803 574548 .
