News for September 2022
The Centre will be closed on Monday 19th September 2022
Please be advised that the Centre will be closed on Monday 19th September, as a mark of respect for Her Majesty the Queen's funeral. We will be open as usual for therapies on Thursday.
The NHCISC and Macmillan Cancer Support Survey has been concluded and the feedback is being compiled to form a report which will be available to all. The response was very good.
The new furniture has been delivered to the centre and looks very nice. Our thanks go to those who undertook the job of selecting the new furniture and disposing of the old.
MONDAYS - We are staffing the Centre as usual with two volunteers morning and afternoon. Anyone, including volunteers, coming in should ideally do a lateral flow test before arrival, sanitise hands on arrival and wear a mask until they are seated. The volunteers should wear a mask when moving around the centre.
WEDNESDAY Mens Group - as normal Wednesday 15th June and 20th July between 2.30 - 4.00pm
THURSDAYS - Our Thursday therapy sessions continue as normal.
Yoga presentation. Iain Black has offerered to give a talk at the NHCISC about the benefits of Yoga irrespective of age or physical limitations. The initial response was quite low but this will remain an option as we move towards Autumn. Yoga can be tailored to individual abilities. If you are interested then please email Malcolm at: email@example.com
New volunteers - the centre relies heavily on its volunteers. The more volunteers we have reduces the pressure on a few. If you, or someone you know would like to volunteer at the centre then please contact a member of the committee to learn more.
