Gainsborough Cancer Support Group.

The Gainsborough Cancer Support Group is partnered with Macmillan Cancer and offers support and information to those either suffering from cancer or who are caring for sufferers.

This small informal group began late last year and is run by Sue and Jean who met when they were both dealing with cancer. At that time there was no organisation in Gainsborough where they could turn to for advice so they later decided to set up a support group themselves.


The group offers befriending, cancer information, bereavement support and most importantly the chance to share experiences and chat. In normal times they meet up on the third Thursday morning of each month from 10.00 – 12.00 at The Venue (Roses – North Warren Rd) where a warm welcome, tea and informal chat awaits. However due to the latest government rules re the Covid pandemic meetings are suspended as from 14th Sept 2020. However Jean and Sue are urging people to still make contact as their support is still there if anyone needs some information or a chat.

For more information contact Jean or Sue on 07707 707140 who will be pleased to take your call.
