Sherborne Cancer Support Group

Looking for support in Sherborne? Are you someone who has been affected by cancer as a patient, carer, family member or colleague? Macmillan Cancer Support, in partnership with the local patient groups, are looking to start a cancer support group in Sherborne where members of the community can offer peer support and help each other. We know it can be beneficial for people to share practical tips, experiences and provide emotional support to each other. It can also be fun and a chance to make new friends. We are holding an informal event in October (whilst maintaining Covid-19 social distancing) so people can see what a support group is all about, there will be a chance to meet members of other local groups to chat about how they got started and what they get up to. Please join us in the lounge at: The Guest Lounge, Manor Court, Retirement Housing, (Behind Sherborne Town Council Office) Newland, Sherborne. DT9 3JX 26th.October 2021 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm Coffee, tea, biscuits and cake will be available To find out more please contact: Vicky Morland, Sherborne PCN, Social Prescriber.
