Before the pandemic, Cherry Lodge Cancer Care Members could choose from an impressive range of group activities, including exercise sessions, a singing group and an art group, held at the CL Centre and at off-site venues. During the pandemic it was necessry to suspend all our in-person group activities, with some replaced by online sessions via Zoom. Since then, our programme has been steadily building up again, and group activities are now taking place off site, at the centre and online.
