The Blue Space Services
Cancer support & services for MEN in & around NORTH HAMPSHIRE
The Blue Space is a branch of the Pink Place charity. We welcome Guests (men with a cancer diagnosis) to our Wellbeing sessions (in Alton) and run occasional evening meetings.
Guests may use our Blue Space sessions at any point from initial diagnosis to up to 3 years after the end of treatment.
Currently our Alton Wellbeing Session runs twice a month at The Maltings, Alton and welcomes men and women who are affected by any form of cancer. Contact us for details.
On arrival, Guests can enjoy refreshments and homemade cake in a relaxed environment. The session allows time to enjoy mini tasters of complementary therapies (eg foot reflexology, Indian Head massage), chat to others and discover our many resources. Any chosen therapies will be tailored to your own medical and personal needs
The Wellbeing sessions are provided free of charge, though donations are always gratefully received.
We rely on donations and fundraising events to fund all our services.
