Centre Updates

Our cancer support centre is open Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm, please drop in and find out all about our free cancer support services or visit www.starthrowers.org.uk for more information.

Hair Loss Support Day

Our first ‘Hair Loss Support Day’ provided people with a safe and welcoming space to explore the options and support available to those experiencing hair loss as a result of cancer and its treatments. Our attendees learnt lots of scarf tying techniques, scalp care and make up tips from HeadWrappers, they received a free hand massage from Tropic Ambassador Cat and then they were given wig advice and fitted with wigs from our wig bank by Britta Wigs. All went home with a goodie bag of items to help them with hair loss. Contact us to find out more and watch this space for date of the next event: info@starthrowers.org.uk / 01953 423304

Mind-Full Mondays

From Monday 16th October we will be providing a free 30 minute zoom session to help create calm, focus, and a splash of good vibes to start your week for those affected by cancer. Grab yourself a cuppa, head to a quiet space and have a notebook and pen handy! Contact us to find out more: info@starthrowers.org.uk
