New Services Announced At Sunflowers Cancer Support

SUNFLOWERS Cancer Support has announced a raft of new services for people living with and beyond cancer in Liverpool. Founded in 1986, Sunflowers was set up by a group of people which had something in common; each had been affected by cancer and each had found a lack of information and support on the subject. They attracted a small amount of funding and established a successful drop in centre. Based at 21 Aigburth Road in South Liverpool, Sunflowers provides guidance, counselling, complementary therapies, exercise groups and support sessions for people living with cancer – whether newly diagnosed or in remission. Its services are free, confidential and let by a team of professionals. The services it is offering include:
  • Yoga
  • Papercrafts
  • Counselling
  • Yoga Meditation
  • Support groups
  • Tai Chi
  • Hobby Crafts
  • Textile Crafts
  • Pilates (mat based & standing)
  • Singing
  • Complementary therapies (aromatherapy, massage, reiki)
The centre also runs a range of social activities, such as quiz nights, pamper evenings and ‘Owl Therapy’. Discussing the services, Emma Squibb, CEO of Sunflowers, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer such a wide range of services to people living with, or beyond cancer in Liverpool. “We’ve worked hard to design a programme that has something for everyone, whether they want to make new friends, keep fit or just enjoy a bit of pampering. Our services are free and available to anyone living with cancer so we hope to see lots more people coming through out doors in the coming months.” To find out more about their services, visit: www.liverpoolsunflowers.com
