Member of the Month / Harbour Cancer Support
Harbour Cancer Support is a local independent charity that offers practical and emotional support to anyone affected by any cancer across South East Hampshire.
The charity has been operating for over 18 years. The centre based in Gosport offers a safe haven for cancer patients, their families, carers and friends to come and spend time in a warm and welcoming environment, in which they can receive much needed support throughout their cancer journey.
A cancer diagnosis whether personal or that of a loved one can impact greatly on a person’s health and emotional well-being. It can be difficult to process the news and deal with the practical implications of a diagnosis, Harbour Cancer Support is here to support them through this time.
- Drop-in centre
- Support for children
- Complementary therapies
- An art group and a craft group
All our services are offered free of charge and are not limited to a set time scale, meaning people can access the vital support for as long as they need.
Harbour Cancer Support receives no external funding we rely greatly on our own fundraising efforts and the support and generosity of the local community, businesses and organisations to continue our vital work.
In the run up to Christmas we sell our charity Christmas cards and calendars to raise much needed funds, these are kindly donated by Pressplus so 100% of the sale of these go to Harbour Cancer. Our clients who attend the art group have produced a painting to go into the calendar.
If you would like to buy any of our cards or calendars or for more information on our services please visit their website.
