Paddle for Cancer Bosom Pals Team 
We are looking for anyone who would like to paddle in the Bosom Pals team this year. We like to have a large squad so that not everyone has to paddle 3 times. It is a great moment to get together, catch up on news and also to share the experience. If you would like to join us please contact Sonia Gunton by clicking the link below or call 022 361 63 89.

Are you driving to the UK this Summer or have UK visitors driving here?

Can You Help?

Thanks to a number of volunteers and their friends/family, we have continued to review, and add to, the collection of Macmillan publications available in the ESCA library.

When browsing the Macmillan website recently I noticed that some publications have been updated. I would like to be able to order these as soon as possible, so as to have the latest editions. This is why, once again, I am asking for your help. 

If you are travelling to the UK by car during the summer, or have visitors coming out by car and you/they would be willing to bring out a package of booklets, please contact me and let me have the postal address to which the booklets can be posted. 

Very many thanks for your help.
