Meeting day and time
We meet on the second Thursday of most months from 7pm to 8.30pm, on the following dates in 2019:
11 July Speaker: Reiki practitioner Donnie Farago joins us for a talk and demonstration of this complementary therapy. New venue: Thanington Neighbourhood Resource Centre - see below for address and directions.
8 August Speaker: Jilly Vickers, Regional Development Manager with Lymphoma Action joins us for her annual update on developments at the charity
Going to a meeting
Anyone affected by lymphoma can attend a Lymphoma Action support group. You don't have to book or even let us know beforehand that you are coming along - just turn up, you'll be made welcome.
There is no charge for attending a Lymphoma Action support group, though donations help us to continue to provide local support.
At your first meeting, you will complete a registration form, which also enables us to keep in touch with you about future meetings. You can request other types of information, including our popular Lymphoma matters magazine, on the same form.
You can attend our support groups as often and for as long as you need - you aren't expected to come to every meeting and don't have to tell us if you won't be there. If you move on but then want to come back, perhaps because of a change to your lymphoma, that's fine, too.
Going to a lymphoma support group for the first time can feel like a big step. If you would like to talk to someone about it, you are welcome to call the Freephone helpline on 0808 808 5555 (Mon-Fri 10am-3pm) or email us at email@example.com
If you would like to speak with the Canterbury support group organiser before going to a meeting, just call our helpline on 0808 808 5555. We will take your telephone number and ask the organiser to call you.
