NEW SUPPORT SERVICE
Talk and support
Introducing Bury Cancer Support Centre’s new online service via Zoom, available to all our Centre users.
Are you finding life challenging at the moment?
Would you find it helpful to join our weekly Talk and Support drop-in sessions? Starting Mon 5th October 1:30pm – 3pm (to include short break).
Each week there will be a different topic to start a discussion, where we can share our experiences and ideas in a friendly, safe and confidential setting.
Weekly topics will be: -
1. Changes / delays in cancer care and treatment due to COVID 19 pandemic.
2. Vulnerability and building resilience.
3. Coping with anxiety.
4. Improving confidence and self-esteem.
The sessions will be led by Debs our experienced Life Coach, supported by Linda and Barbara our Counsellors.
If this is something you would be interested in, simply contact Linda by email at: who will then email you with further details.
If you feel concerned about the use of Zoom, we are happy to explain and guide you through the short process of joining a session.
You are, as always, welcome to call us on 0161 764 6609 to speak to a Keyworker.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!

Relaxation - Haven of peace
Hi I’m Nalini
I have been doing daily relaxation session at the Bury Cancer Support for the last 9 years. As the centre is currently closed I have put a couple of relaxation recordings on YouTube which you will find under Relaxation Nalini, Haven of Peace and Haven of Peace 2 Coast.
Relaxation is beneficial to the body and mind at anytime not just when you are feeling stressed.
The relaxation lasts for about 20 minutes.
You can sit or lie down which ever is comfortable for you.
Cover yourself with a blanket, towel or wear an extra layer of clothing, as the body can cool down when you relax and it begins to slow down.
Let the room be quiet as you listen to my voice.
