Cake, Cancer and Coffee

Practical help and support groups

We meet on the 1st Sunday of each month from 3pm to 5pm at Red Gables in Stowmarket. Our sessions start with an introduction of new members with coffee/ tea and cake followed by an informal chat with space for members to break into smaller groups to discuss more specific issues or worries if they would like to. Our plans for speakers and activities so far include Suffolk Family Carers, Dietary advice, complimentary therapies, health care professionals, crafty sessions, meditation, mindfulness and controlled breathing exercises and outings such as picnics over the summer. We will post more up to date information on our facebook page at We have also started a local cancer information site called Stowmarket Cancer Network (SCaN) which is at: Group lunches are every two months on 2nd Sunday times and venues vary, emails are sent out to group members of the lunch details. Coffee meet ups in local cafes is a new service to help those who feel the need to meet someone from the group initially before our normal times, or need that extra pick me up to help them through their journey.
