Newsletter No.16 – December 2019


Happy New Year to you all. After the Christmas and New year celebrations we are busy planning a wonderful year of support.
There are many new workshops as well as some repeats from those you liked last year. We will also be asking for some feedback at our drop in’s as we would really value what you all think about what we offer.
One of the most exciting thing to happen in December was the announcement that we were successful in our bid for funding from the Ammonite Fund. This fund is being donated to Lyme Regis Town Council from Fossil Films to provide a lasting legacy in memory of Mary Anning and to celebrate the film Ammonite which comes out shortly.

The idea came from a local family who come to our drop in and we are very excited to get going and make this happen. The beach hut will be able to be used by anyone affected by any cancer and you will be able to book it out for the day. More details to follow.

Co-op Local Community Fund
Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support has been chosen to benefit from the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.
The funding has started so please do register your loyalty card so 1p of each £1 is given to ALCS.

Not a member?  Join here.  No matter which Co-op you use, the funds will come to the charity.

Christmas Cards and Wreath Making!
Thank-you to Ali from Busy Bee Florist for making the Christmas Wreath making workshop ‘such fun’! Over 25 wreaths were made, lots of laughter and chats. Some wonderful Christmas mulled drinks and nibbles, all in all an afternoon of festive fun.

Recommended Reading/Listening
This month we would like to suggest using our audio skills! Podcasts are a great way to learn new things, do research and relax. Whether in a car or just taking a moment with a cup of tea. Liz Earle covers many topics relevant to living well and is passionate about bringing up to date information to her podcasts with relevant international speakers.
Would you like to volunteer with us? Last month we welcomed two new volunteers Tiffany and Lynne, we look forward to working with them in the coming months. We were joined by a representative from Macmillan at our training session, it was great to have Sam’s input and support.  If you would like to join us, or know anyone who could help us with administration, hosting our drop-in sessions, fundraising etc, please get in touch. We are holding our next volunteer training session on 11th February.
