New support group for cancer launch

Have your say

Cancer patients in South Holland and their families can get help and advice from a new group being launched this week.

The first meeting of South Holland Cancer Support Group is being held at St Barnabas Hospice Day Centre, Clover Way, Woolram Wygate, Spalding, on Thursday at 7pm.

People are invited to bring ideas for the group which has been set up by complementary therapist Ann Croucher from Sutton Bridge, with the suppport of Lincolnshire Carers Partnership.

Ann said: “I was helping a lady who has survived cancer and she said there was no support group in the area for people to turn to for help.

“I mentioned it to a friend of mine, Midge Clayton who works with St Barnabas Hospice, and we feel the group is for anyone who has been affected by cancer and needs that extra bit of support.”
