Cork ARC Cancer Support House’s West Cork team have recently set up a fundraising committee to raise vital funds towards the development and delivery of their essential cancer support services for the communities of West Cork and South Kerry.

Community Cancer Support Co-Ordinator at Cork ARC in West Cork, Catriona O’Mahony says, “We are very grateful to the community for the fantastic fundraising efforts made by so many people across the area since we established the service here in 2015. Our fundraising committee would very much like to offer help or support to anyone who may wish to fundraise in the future. Cork ARC is a Registered Charity, and as all services are available free of charge, significant funds are needed each year to ensure the service can continue.

Catriona extends a warm welcome to all those interested in making a real difference for people whose lives have been affected by cancer, saying, “All those interested in getting involved in our fundraising committee are welcome to contact us at our centre, on 027 53891.”

Cork ARC Cancer Support House in West Cork is located between Bantry and Ballylickey, and provides a safe haven where people affected by cancer and their families are able to come for practical help, free of charge. Open each Tuesday and Thursday, the drop in centre is the focus of the service, where cancer patients and their families can call in or telephone for support.

Counselling, massage and reflexology are also available to provide emotional and psychological support for times when cancer patients and those who care for them are most in need. Since opening additionally on Thursdays in late 2016, the team has added a Mindfulness programme and regular information workshops such as Diet in Cancer, Hormonal Therapies and Bereavement Information to the calendar.

Interested members of the community are welcome to contact Catriona O’Mahony on (027) 53891/(083) 1988580 or email westcork@corkcancersupport.ie.
