Newsletter No.66 – February 2024

Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support
February 2024

We are nearly into March and I am sure I am not the only one who is loving seeing the bright yellow daffodils popping up amongst the grey clouds and rain.

We are are delighted this week to be hearing some of you on BBC Radio Devon, telling your story and the impact of cancer. Sharing our experiences really does help others and we are grateful to Jo from the BBC who came to record for the programme. You can see these by clicking the individual links here – Shelley – Yvonne –, Sami –, Rachel –, Barbara –

Since 2018 and starting ALCS I have not reached out and asked directly for support, however if you feel you are able to help us to maintain all we do going forward by making a monthly donation ,this would mean so much . Every pound makes a difference, it is easy to set up a direct monthly payment by following the link Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support | Localgiving and if applicable please do tick the gift aid option as this increase our funds significantly.

If you are interested in signing up for any of the events/workshops below please do and if you have any queries the team are here to support you.

2.  Thank you – The waffle House 

Thank you to the waffle house for the ‘Pink One’ special last year. This raised £64 and goes directly to support our clients.

4. Recommended Reading  – Being Mortal: Atul Gawande

We have a copy of this book available to borrow from our library.

Medicine and what matters in the end.

Have we exalted longevity over what makes life worth living? And do we infantilise the old? This is an original and moving exploration of illness and death?

If you have any of your own recommendations to share for cancer or health books and podcasts please do let us know for our resources.


5. Beach Hut

Do look out for beach hut last minute dates on Facebook and the ALCS WhatsApp group going forward. Please send a text or WhatsApp to 07512 279663 to be added if you are an existing client.

The booking system has been designed to give priority to those going through treatment or recently finished. The confirmation and information is sent within the Eventbrite ticket. You can also manage your booking by cancelling any dates you are no longer able to use.

6. ALCS Online Shop and ‘The Nook’ at Cross Keys House

If you are looking for individual cards, or a bespoke gift locally made please do consider our online shop.
Hopefully we have made it easier for you to purchase beautifully illustrated blank cards, recipe books, key rings and CDs – all the money raised goes directly to help our clients.

Just add your items to the basket and go to the checkout which is now using Stripe payments but Paypal is still an option. If you have any problems please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.

We also have a  little shop ‘The Nook’ at Cross Keys House with a selection of good quality reasonably priced items, where all profit goes directly to support local people affected by cancer. Please bring any donations to Cross Keys House for our Nook or Pop-Up Charity Shop we have another in April.
