The Cancer Wellbeing Service at Peterborough City Hospital has just turned three years old and is looking to expand its team of volunteers.
The Service, based at the Robert Horrell Centre on the hospital site, is looking for volunteer qualified Complimentary Therapists who want to work with people who have been affected by cancer.
Complimentary therapy for these patients promotes relaxation and reducing stress, which might help to calm emotions, relieve anxiety and increase a general sense of health and wellbeing.
As a Monday to Friday drop-in service for anyone affected by cancer and their families, people not only drop-in for a friendly, supportive, listening ear, but have the opportunity to learn skills to cope with cancer, from fatigue management to craft sessions, and acupuncture for hot flushes.
Caroline Lansell, Cancer Wellbeing Specialist at the Robert Horrell Centre at Peterborough City Hospital, said: “We are really proud of what we have already achieved and would like to continue to build on the services that we offer to our patients. More and more people are benefitting from our service, and we would love to be able to provide relaxing treatments for patients such as massage, reflexology, Reiki, manicures and pedicures, make-up sessions and colour therapy.”
If you would like to know more, or can help, please contact Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on 01733 678566.
