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. 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 or Autumn Fayres.

                                                           

                                                       

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 picture above. 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), which was taken when our members were enjoying the hospitality of Gordon and Carole at one of their garden parties , is a case in point.

The hedgehog was not invited but he appeared to be pleased to see us when our Group members paid a visit to Tiggywinkles.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Twice a year we run major events. In the summer of 2017 we had a traditional afternoon tea aboard a horse drawn narrow boat on the Kennet and Avon canal and every winter the Group is treated to a Christmas dinner at a local venue which, last year, everyone enjoyed.
