A warm welcome to The Living Tree
We are a self-help support group for people who have experienced cancer and for their families/carers. Our group is based in Bridport and is open to any cancer patients from West Dorset, East Devon and South Somerset. We’re all at different stages of cancer – some recently diagnosed, others undergoing treatment, some in remission, others post-cancer.
The sudden loss of support – and even routine – after treatment has finished can lead to depression, loneliness and anxiety. We find that companionship, creative activities and relaxing therapies can really help.
UPDATE September 2021
The Living Tree is once again hosting our meetings in-person.
From Friday 15th October these meetings will be held weekly at the Friends Meeting House on South Street, Bridport.
We shall continue to post our monthly newsletter by email to everyone on our mailing list which includes information on local support services. Subscribe via the box at top right of this page. Hard copies of the newsletter are available on request for those without internet access.
Due to Covid restrictions with venue hire, the kitchens at both venues will not be in use, so we will be unable to provide any refreshments or snacks. Please bring your own drinks.
Members are now able to participate in our allotment project. As well as the pleasure of growing vegetables, the project offers the opportunity for mutual support, for forging new friendships and for reducing feelings of isolation in a safe environment.
If you would like more information, please contact us using the contact link on the website, email us at email@example.com or call our mobile 07341 916976
