Castlederg Cancer Support Group

Practical help and support groups

We are still a small group, having started last January. We meet every 2nd Wed of the month @7pm in Derg Valley HLC. Thus far we’ve had some activities such as Reflexology and we ran a Macmillan Coffee Morning, raising £300. We’ve also had the Pink Ladies from Derry Down for a talk. Sadly in this short period 2 members have lost their fight with cancer, so those nights with just tea, nibbles and a chat were very much needed.
