New support group for all affected by cancer

THE first drop-in session of the Axminster and Lyme Regis Cancer Support group was held on October 1 at the Scott Rowe meeting room at Axminster Hospital (pictured above).

Group administrator Tracey Grinter said: “We were delighted to see new faces and be able to offer refreshments and a friendly chat. One lady said she was so pleased to be able to have a local support group as she had been travelling to Exeter.

“October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we had lots of information to display. We will be featuring different cancer types throughout the year and are arranging some specific meetings looking at lifestyle and other relevant topics.”

Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support aims to support anyone with any cancer in the local area.

The next drop-in session will be held at The Pop Up Kitchen in Broad Street, Lyme Regis on Lyme Regis Tuesday, October 16 from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
