Wherever your cancer is, you will be welcome at our Group. We meet every Friday so come along and find out more about us. Our aim is to support and help you through difficult times. We CAN help you and improve your quality of life.

We are a local Group, totally independent of any other cancer charity or the NHS, we are non-political and non-religious. The mainstay of our Group is the Friday meeting and this has always been well supported which demonstrates how successful the Group is in providing just what the members want. Here is Alf celebrating a birthday ably supported by Albert. Our membership is now approaching 50 with attendance at the Friday meeting usually between 20 and 25 so you will always find someone to chat to. Twice a year, we throw open the doors and invite Members and the general public to the Spring and Autumn Fayres.

                                                           

                                                       Friday Group

We are based in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, but we extend a warm welcome to anyone in the surrounding villages and our neighbouring towns of Dunstable, Luton, Milton Keynes, Bletchley and Aylesbury.

 

          In fact it doesn't matter where you live, a warm welcome awaits you.

 

As a Group we try to support each other through the sad times and share our good times. This is done with lots of coffee and biscuits and a very inclusive, warm atmosphere at our Friday meetings. As you page through this web-site, you will see many photographs of people enjoying themselves at one of the events or activities put on to enhance the quality of life of our Group members.

Many of the photographs include friends and supporters of the group and we would like to point out that not everyone pictured has had a cancer diagnosis. Indeed the only criteria to being accepted as a member of the Group is to be over the age of eighteen and to have had a cancer diagnosis.

Our regular Friday morning meetings are supplemented by trips to outside activities. The following picture (on the left), was taken when our members were enjoying each other's company at a lunch at a local hostelry. The picture on the right is of a few characters taking part in a Murder Mystery production.

In the summer of 2017 we had a traditional afternoon tea aboard a horse drawn narrow boat on the Kennet and Avon canal but you'll have to take my word for there being a narrow boat at the other end of the rope ! Additionally, every winter the Group is treated to a Christmas dinner at a local venue which, last year, as you can see, everyone enjoyed.
