This is an opportunity for all those affected by cancer in any way to meet in relaxed environment and meet others.

Currently the Abbotts Barton Hotel are unable to accommodate us for any meetings, due to refugees and refurbishments.  We are trying to source another location but so far have been unsuccessful, we are struggling to match all the requirements needed costs, parking, space etc.

The meeting on 17th March is therefore cancelled, we are hoping to have a meeting on 21st April once we have found a venue.  Please contact one of the committee  the week commencing 11th April if you would like to attend.

Thank you

 

Unfortunately, we must inform you that after a short illness Daphne Woodcock passed away on 12th December 2021.   This will be a huge loss and it will leave a big gap in our team as Daphne’s devotion, enthusiasm, motivation and kindness was one thing that has kept the club going for so many years and to many she was also a good friend.

The Funeral will be on – Tuesday 18th January 2022

1240 Barham Crematorium short committal service.

1400 United Reformed Church, Canterbury for service followed by refreshments.

Family flowers only.

Donations to Cancer Care Club, through J Dilnot – Smith and Sons, Woodnesborough, Sandwich, Kent CT13 0PD

The family are not expecting everyone to attend the crematorium as the main event will be at the church.

Please feel free to pass to others  but  please let one of the committee know if you are planning to attend for catering purposes.

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to cancel the November lunchtime meeting (18th) and Christmas Lunch in December (9th)  at the Abbots Barton Hotel for which we are very sorry.  We will hopefully resume events in the New Year.

The lunchtime meeting is going ahead on 21st October, so if you are planning to come please make sure you contact Daphne on 01227 720631.

We will be reviewing the venue situation and update everyone as soon as possible.

In the meantime we hope you stay safe and well and have Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.

If anyone can spare a few hours we would value your support on the committee, again please contact Daphne.

Best Wishes from all of the Committee

Dear Members

It has been 18 months since we last met and things have been somewhat challenging.

Following our first committee meeting, things are now starting to look brighter and we are hoping to move forward and get the club events up and running.

Lunchtime meetings

We will be holding our first lunch event on Thursday 21st October and would love to see you, 12 noon until 2 pm at the Abbots Barton followed by the next one on Thursday 18th November.  We have spoken to the Hotel and they have assured us they will be able to support distancing restrictions etc in line with Covid. If you could let Daphne know if you are planning to attend so we can ensure we have sufficient refreshments.

Subsidised refreshments, tea/coffee, sandwiches etc, for which we ask for a donation of £5 per person which we feel is still good value.

We will be able to introduce Jenny who has taken over from Malcolm’s secretarial workload.  We would like to thank Malcolm & Sylvia Hodgson for their tremendous support both on the committee and with the lunchtime raffles.  We will also miss ‘Daisy the dog’.

Christmas Lunch

This will be on Thursday 9th December at the Abbots Barton, 12.30 for 1pm sit down.  We have enclosed an exciting Christmas menu which will be £28 per person (subsidised). Please let me know ASAP if you would like to attend along, with menu choices and monies.

There will be the usual drinks on the table, but feel free to purchase other drinks at the bar.  Raffle prizes gratefully accepted, please bring them on the day.

Christmas Cards

Daphne has the new Christmas cards which are the same price £3.50 per pack of 10

AGM

An interim Annual General Meeting will be held prior to the lunchtime session on 21st October 2021 at 11.30am, all welcome.

If you do not wish to continue receiving anymore correspondence, please let Daphne know. We will keep you posted regarding new events/plans for 2022 and we look forward to seeing you.

Best wishes from the Committee
