The health care professionals and trained volunteers who work at Cherry Lodge provide a range of support to meet different needs. These include the following:

Drop-In Sessions

The regular Drop-In Sessions at Cherry Lodge provide an opportunity for people with cancer to meet each other, overcome isolation, offer mutual support and receive a complementary therapy.

Hairdressing and Headwear

We regret that our hairdressing service is currently not available. It is hoped that this service for people whose hair has been affected by cancer treatment will be resumed later in 2016. We are still selling Buffs and have a small selection of wigs available.
