Having cancer is a life-changing experience which often leaves people feeling socially isolated. This is particularly so amongst the more senior members of society.

To help combat this, we offer a range of opportunities for people to get together informally.

Social Activities

Walking and talking is great ‘therapy’! So, when the weather allows, we meet each week for a walk around Parker’s Piece. Having all gathered together, everyone sets off at their own pace: some slowly, some more quickly. We aim for a maximum of two circuits and then recover over tea and cake at Livingstone’s cafe!

We also like frequenting restaurants! Lunch at the Lazy Otter is popular as are visits to the WokNGrill and Zahra Grill. Every Saturday, a group of us meets for breakfast at Scotsdales Garden Centre. Occasionally we meet for breakfast at Fordham Garden Centre.

If you would like to join in any, or all, of these activities, you’ll be very welcome. Please speak to Ann Dingley for more details.


We also offer a variety of outings to suit different tastes. These are open to everyone although advanced booking is essential to secure a place. We do make a charge to cover costs.

If you’d like to know more, please speak to Ann Fleming.
