The Pink Place Services

Cancer support & services for women in & around North Hampshire

Wellbeing Sessions

The Pink Place welcomes our Guests (ladies with a cancer diagnosis) at any point from initial diagnosis to up to 3 years after the end of treatment. Our weekly sessions provide an opportunity to benefit from our Wellbeing Services which include Complementary Therapies, Hair Advice, Talks, Crafts and other Activities. An opportunity to meet and chat to others in a similar situation and receive support, counselling and information.

Guests arrive and enjoy refreshments and homemade cake in a relaxed environment and learn what is available that day. The rest of the morning allows time to enjoy the activities on offer, chat to others and discover our many resources. You may choose to be take part or sit and listen– the choice is yours.

The Wellbeing sessions are provided free of charge, though donations are always gratefully received as we rely on donations and fundraising events to fund all our services.
There is a suggested donation of £2 per session for refreshments.
