Simply phone, email or fax Blythe House, or drop in any time between 10am and 4.30pm, Monday - Thursday.
Our services are free, other than for snacks and light lunches. Blythe House receives some government funding but over two thirds of our annual running costs, currently £600,000 per year, needs to be raised through voluntary contributions and fundraising. Without the help and support of our volunteers, generous donors, local people and businesses, we could not provide vital services to our clients.
Supported by Macmillan Cancer Support and opened in 2010, the Centre offers a confidential drop-in service for anyone affected by cancer and provides access to current, high-quality information; empathic support and links to other local and national services. Access is via Blythe House or directly from Eccles Fold. Anyone can drop in during opening hours: Monday - Thursday, 10.00am - 4.30pm, or can book an appointment: 01298 875080.
