The Trinity Holistic Centre is looking for walkers to take part in its Sunset at the Summit challenge. Those taking part will walk up Blencathra in the Lake District to experience a sunset to remember while raising sponsorship to support patients with cancer and other long-term conditions.
The Trinity Holistic Centre is holding two information days to encourage more volunteers to join its highly valued team. As a charitable service the centre relies heavily on its volunteers and following significant expansion it is looking to recruit to a number of roles covering The James Cook University Hospital, Redcar Primary Care Hospital and Friarage Hospital sites.
The Macmillan cancer information and support centre at The James Cook University Hospital is appealing for volunteers. Up to 20 new volunteers are needed to take on a number of roles including meeting and greeting centre users, providing advice, information and signposting to other local services, admin duties, supporting patients, carers and staff in clinical areas and offering a listening ear to anyone who needs it.
Current and previous patients are very welcome to come along to the group and the next meeting will be held on Thursday 26 March at 1pm in The Beefeater Restaurant, Premier Inn, Morton Park, DARLINGTON DL1 4PJ. The guest speaker will be Linda Sergeant, community development worker, Healthwatch Redcar and Cleveland.
The bowel cancer support group at The James Cook University Hospital will meet at the Trinity Holistic Centre at the Middlesbrough hospital on Thursday 5 March.
We would like to find out whether we should be providing specific support for children and young people affected by a cancer diagnosis and/or other long term conditions at the Trinity Holistic Centre. We are holding two informal focus groups at the Trinity Holistic Centre, The James Cook University Hospital where you can come along and share your thoughts.
