Talks about our new services

Oct. 17, 2018

If you belong a local group in Bonnybridge, Denny or Banknock and would be happy for one of the volunteers to come and give a brief talk about our new services please contact us using the details on the site.

We are very proud of the fact that we are offering relaxation, gentle massage and reflexology to people who are struggling with cancer and a close family member. People who are having chemotherapy or radiotherapy can also have hair cutting, wig and scarf advice, nail cutting and manicures in their own homes.

We run periodic courses on mindfulness for people with cancer and their families to help make it easier to cope.
