The Pink Place Cancer Charity Basingstoke

The Pink Place Services​

Cancer support & services for women in & around North Hampshire

Support Sessions

The Pink Place welcomes our Guests (ladies with a cancer diagnosis) at any point from initial diagnosis, through and after treatment. A range of weekly sessions provide an opportunity to benefit from our Wellbeing Services which include Complementary Therapies, Counselling, Mindfulness, Yoga,  Hair Advice, Talks, Crafts and other Activities.

Our aims are to reduce your sense of isolation by being with others who understand, help improve your mental health and feeling of wellbeing and get peer support and information to help increase resilience.

Most of our services are provided free of charge, though donations are always gratefully received as we rely on donations and fundraising events to fund all our services. Occasionally there is a small suggested donation for certain activities.

New to The Pink Place?

If you have just been diagnosed with Cancer, or are looking for emotional support during your treatment, why not come along to meet us, get information, and find out how we can help. Half hour appointments are available on Monday mornings - please contact us to book in.
