The Pink Place
Who we are
Despite COVID19, The Pink Place is proud to report that we are still able to provide much needed support services & counselling to adults affected by cancer.
With the use of technology, it has enabled our Support Groups to meet 'Virtually', weekday mornings for 'coffee & chat', counselling, sharing of information & tips, health & fitness, guest speaker presentations & talks, quizzes & music...including plenty of smiles & laughter. We are now starting to resume our face-to-face activities and preparing to move into new, more accessible and bespoke premises that will better meet our needs going forward.
This current situation is difficult for everyone but for those going through cancer, the overwhelming feelings of anxiety, isolation, loneliness & fear are accelerated and can be even more challenging to their emotional & mental wellbeing.
The demand on our services is growing daily. As a small charity this is placing additional demands & financial strains on our limited resources.
We are very grateful for your donation and literally every £ really does count.
In normal circumstances:
The Pink Place is a cancer charity providing wellbeing services and support for adults affected with any form of cancer in Basingstoke and surrounding area.
Men with cancer are supported through our Blue Space sessions and offer similar therapies for men. There is a monthly group for men whose partner/loved one is affected by cancer.
Social events include craft sessions, coffee and chat, lunch club and coach trips for adults affected by cancer.
We run information days/evening with guest speakers on a range of subjects.
The Pink Place relies on donations and fundraising events to provide these services.
We are based in Basingstoke and have been running since 2010.
