1 Newsletter Autumn / Winter 2013 Fay s Decidedly Nifty at Fifty! determination and a lot of planning, Fay took on the challenge to trek to Everest Base Camp and organise a multitude of varied fundraising events, both for Coping with Cancer and a Bangladeshi Slum School, which she visits and supports during her regular trips out there. With the aid of her many local, national and international friends, including some made through the Hinckley Time Out Group (which Fay attended during her recovery process from colon cancer) here s a taste of what she got up to: Three Stressbuster events, aided by some of the CWC volunteer therapists (with particular thanks to Lynn Jackson) / A Curry and Cabaret night, which packed her local Indian Restaurant, The Bangla Lounge / A Christmas Cakes and Choruses afternoon / The auction of a beautiful piece of work, kindly donated by local contemporary textile artist, Michelle Holmes. Fay also organised two further events in Devon (for her friends there) and received many, many donations from friends and family, both online and in person. Amongst all this, Fay still packed in her sponsored trek to Nepal, battling altitude and the harsh conditions! Survivor, adventurer, fundraiser and all-round lovely person. That s how I would sum-up Fay Poggi - an inspiration to us all. Back in our Winter 2012 newsletter, we reported on Fay s decision to celebrate her 50th birthday year in style and with two close to her heart causes in mind. So, with All this hard work paid off enormously, and Fay should take immense pride in having raised an amazing 3, for Coping with Cancer, which was presented to us in June. Fay also raised a similar amount for her Bangladeshi Slum School Project, which will help children receive an education they would otherwise miss out on, providing them with opportunities for a better future. Pictured is Fay outside the St Francis Centre, Hinckley, which hosts our Time Out Group on the second and fourth Tuesday every month from 1.30pm 4pm. Thank you Fay! Car Parking at Helen Webb House Westleigh Road and some surrounding roads will soon be subject to the Westcotes Residents Parking Scheme, which will vastly limit the amount of street parking available to visitors. We will endeavour to keep our car park as clear as possible for client parking and with the support of the Westleigh Christadelphians Church, utilise their private car park at times of significant need. Please note that the parking restrictions do apply to disabled badge holders. Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Fayre on Saturday 9th November - we raised ! 1

2 Welcome Dear all As many of you will have read in the update that Lorna Allen, Charity Manager, sent out in September, Coping with Cancer is currently going through some significant changes. I mentioned in the Summer newsletter that the Charity has to operate within an awareness of the pressure on public funds, budget constraints, changes in the health and social care landscape and a need to continually find more efficient and innovative ways of working. With this in mind Lorna has made a proposal to the board, which has been approved, to restructure the Charity so that we can be better aligned to meet the needs of the people that we support and secure more funding to support our work and develop services. As a result we are currently in the midst of a formal consultation process with staff which may result in some roles being made redundant. I am sure you can appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all involved but I would like to reassure you that these proposed changes are necessary for the future sustainability of the Charity, especially in these challenging times. I must stress that no decisions have as yet been taken and will not be made until the formal consultations have concluded. As always, we re incredibly grateful and humbled by the support that we receive on a daily basis and we re always looking for ideas about how we could increase our profile and generate more income in the future. If you d like to share any ideas with me, you can contact me via uk or in writing to: Kalv Garcha, Helen Webb House, 35 Westleigh Road, Leicester, LE3 0HH. Please mark your correspondence as Private and Confidential. Thank you for your continued support, we re proud of what we ve achieved thus far in our 32 year history and we know that, with your support, we can do so much more to help people affected by Cancer in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Kalv Chair of the Management Committee Hello all I d like to start off by thanking so many of you for making me feel so welcome since joining the Charity in late June. I m also grateful for your ideas and suggestions for the future of the Charity and I m already proud to be a part of such a wonderful organisation that makes such a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. As Kalv mentioned, we are in the process of formally consulting with some staff regarding a restructure. It s a difficult yet necessary process and your continued support is very much appreciated. If you would like to speak with me about any of the proposed changes please call or Inside this newsletter you ll find lots of updates including what happened when Mollie returned, dates for your diaries, an exciting award announcement, forthcoming events, oh and don t forget our Christmas cards are on sale at Helen Webb House now! Warm regards Lorna Charity Manager 2 Coping with Cancer Newsletter - Autumn / Winter 2013

3 News Mollie Returned Tuesday 17 th September saw the return of Mollie Turner and Sue Young to Coping with Cancer. Sue Young is the founder of the Charity and Mollie is one of the original volunteers who came forward after Sue s BBC Radio Leicester appeal in Volunteers from the past and present gathered at Helen Webb House for an afternoon of memories and shared experiences, with both Sue and Mollie taking the time to share stories from the early days of Coping with Cancer. Mollie recounted stories of being in some questionable areas of the County and becoming a listening ear and shoulder to cry on to countless people; and Sue shared her experience of realising her vision by establishing a Charity dedicated to providing emotional support to local people affected by Cancer. Sue and Mollie said of the event It s been such a wonderful afternoon, full of surprises. Current volunteers and friends of Sue and Mollie from the early days spent the afternoon enjoying each other s company over a light lunch. Chair Kalv Garcha As a volunteer myself, it was wonderful to see so many people congregating to share their experiences of volunteering for Coping with Cancer. I heard so many stories of the great work our volunteers do and so many people sharing ideas about how we can support our volunteers in the future. From left to right: Sue Young, Kalv Garcha, Maggie Chaplin (Mollie s daughter), Mollie Turner and Lorna Allen Macmillan One Stop Changes Since September you may have noticed a change to our One Stop support. Upon the instruction of Macmillan, who fund the project, we are no longer running this programme at Helen Webb House and Gorse Covert in Loughborough. We have agreed to change this to become Health and Wellbeing events which will be held all over Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Our aim is to now offer more information and support to more people across the area by holding information fayres. There ll be lots of different stalls with experts on hand to offer advice and guidance to people about Cancer and where to get help from. For more information about these events, please contact Ellen Woodward on or Coping with Cancer Newsletter - Autumn / Winter

4 Volunteer News Volunteer News: What being a Volunteer with CWC meant to me, Frances Beeby It all started via a message in my box... complementary therapists wanted for local cancer charity. At the time I was working as a nurse in a city hospital but had been studying complementary therapies on one of my days off each week, and also trying to complete my diploma in counselling, both of which opened my eyes to how not only the body needs help to heal and recover but also our minds, our inner most thought processes, basically how we try to make sense of whats going on in our lives. My mum had died from breast cancer aged 59yrs.; I was 18 yrs. old when she started on the long journey of treatment, waiting period, followed by further treatments etc. etc. it becomes part of your life and your family s life. I suppose this made me think about how I could help other people, who were going through this period of uncertainty in their lives, feel able to relax and perhaps talk about whatever they wanted to talk about without feeling they were being negative or upsetting the rest of their family. I initially started visiting people in their own home providing aromatherapy or reflexology massage, which hopefully helped them to relax. I always felt quite privileged to have been accepted into their homes meeting their family and friends and sometimes making friends with the family pet. Working in the Melton Drop In with the other volunteers was a particular memorable period, we all enjoyed the twice monthly sessions and had many a laugh with the local people who attended. Sadly Melton is no more, but many new Drop In Centres have now opened and I hope they all go from strength to strength. They provide a relaxed environment where not only people who have, or are going through treatment are able to talk about their worries and fears but also other family members/ carers, can also do the same. A cuppa, a chat, and a lovely relaxing treatment. In 2011 I also started as a volunteer counsellor at Helen Webb House until my recent move to the West Country. I have found counselling a very rewarding experience and have felt very privileged to have been been allowed to share many people s journeys through the unknown that a cancer diagnosis brings, not only to themselves but to their family and friends. Working as a volunteer has opened my eyes to why organisations like Coping with Cancer are needed, they provide much needed support /advice to people throughout their cancer journey and provide support to their family and carers. The majority of people who provide this support are volunteer workers like myself who give a bit of their time to hopefully help somebody through a difficult time in their life. I am now living in the West Country having moved from Leicestershire this August, and I am already missing all the friends I have made, other work colleagues and the dedicated team of people who help Coping With Cancer run so smoothly. But most of all I miss helping to support people through one of the most difficult and uncertain chapters of their lives. Being a volunteer was a very rewarding experience and I would recommend it to anyone who had even just a few hours to spare from time to time. I hope once the house move has been successful I can find another similar position, and if that is not possible maybe consider further training that would enable me to start support groups! Watch this space. I know Coping with Cancer will go from strength to strength because it is supported by the local people, for the local people and I wish you all the success in the world. Thank you Frances. You will be missed by all at Coping with Cancer and we hope that you find some time in your busy life for yourself. Also: One of our complementary therapists, Alex Gutteridge has made the decision to leave her volunteer role at Coping with Cancer after 3 years of service. Alex has been with the organisation since September 2010, providing reflexology to many patients and carers at our busy Birstall group. Alex has been an asset to the group and organisation as a whole; proving to be an extremely reliable, dedicated and skilful volunteer. She will be greatly missed by clients, volunteers and staff both at the Birstall group and at Helen Webb House. We would like to wish Alex Gutteridge the best of luck for the future and if she does decide to come back to us, she would be more than welcome! Thank you Alex! 4 Coping with Cancer Newsletter - Autumn / Winter 2013

All nominations are anonymous until the announcements are made and each nominee will receive an acknowledgement of their nomination. National Citizenship Service During the Summer break two groups of young people volunteered their time to help us with a variety of projects that we needed help with. The first group, pictured below, helped at Helen Webb House by doing the gardening, painting amd flyering to promote our upcoming events. They also arranged a market stall on Leicester Market to fundraise and increase awareness of the Charity. The second group arranged a family fun day in Broughton Astley and generated over 700 for the Charity! The two groups combined consisted of over 20 young people, many of whom have offered to become Coping with Cancer volunteers. Thank you to you all! This year the winner will be announced on 5th December, so get nominating! Nomination forms can be found inserted into this newsletter, on reception at Helen Webb House and in the news section of the website. The deadline for this round of nominations is Monday 2nd December, Happy Nominating! Welcome to Nisha Mistry, HR Officer Hello, many of you may have already heard from me or met me at Helen Webb House. I m Nisha Mistry and I have been at Coping with Cancer since May when I joined as temporary Human Resource (HR) Assistant. Having had the privilege of working with so many volunteers at the Charity, I decided to apply and was successfully appointed to the temporary role of HR Officer which also carries the responsibility for managing and recruiting volunteers for the Charity. I studied at Sheffield Hallam University for a degree in Business and Management and was involved in lots of volunteering activities. In my final year I decided to specialise in Human Resources having realised that this is where my skills lay. I have worked in HR in recruitment for an agency and at KFC where I got the opportunity to hone my HR skills. I am excited by this role at Coping with Cancer and I am in the process of updating the induction and training programmes for volunteers, seeking volunteer drivers and group supporters and updating policies and procedures. I know my experience in HR will enable me to develop innovative volunteering opportunities at the Charity. I look forward to meeting more of you and working with you. If you have a couple of spare hours to drive or help at our groups please let me know. My address is or you can call me on Coping with Cancer Newsletter - Autumn / Winter

6 Complementary Therapy Hypnotherapy We offer a wide range of complementary therapies here at Coping with Cancer, but one you may not have thought of previously as being beneficial for you is Hypnotherapy. In this article we are going to highlight just some of the benefits of this wonderfully relaxing therapy. What is Hypnotherapy? Hypnosis involves reaching a deep and natural state of relaxation, which helps your mind and body to bring about positive changes. Using a gentle, reassuring and calming tone, your hypnotherapist will guide you into a relaxed state (somewhere in between being asleep and being awake). Once you are in this daydream state your conscious, or alert, mind is relaxed and the therapist can then work with your subconscious promoting positive messages. During all hypnotherapy sessions you will remain in full control, you will be able to feel, hear and speak and will be fully aware of what is happening around you. How can Hypnotherapy help? Hypnotherapy can be particularly useful in alleviating stress, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias (needles, hospitals etc), sleep disturbances, nausea and pain. It can also assist to increase your confidence which in turn aids your ability to cope with stressful situations. At Coping with Cancer, we have three fully qualified hypnotherapists, who are registered with professional hypnotherapy bodies. If you would like further information on hypnotherapy please contact Lucy Pugh on or her at Meditation Open to the public, our Mindfulness Meditation Programme runs every Thursday between 5pm and 7pm here at Helen Webb House. It may help with easing stress and anxiety and improving health and wellbeing. Instructions can be provided to anyone interested in learning and the sessions are intended for beginners with no previous experience of meditation. The session leader has over 40 years experience. There is a nominal charge of 2.50 per session. Volunteers We are also in need of volunteers to help at the following Time Out Groups: Leicester Time Out Helen Webb House First and third Wednesday every month Volunteer to help with refreshments and chat to clients Loughborough Time Out Gorse Covert Community Centre, Maxwell Drive First and third Tuesday every month Qualified therapists (touch therapies) Volunteer to help with refreshments and chat to clients Birstall Time Out Birstall Village Hall, Birstall Road Second and fourth Wednesday every month Qualified therapists (touch therapies) Market Harborough Time Out Lubbenham Village Hall, Lubbenham Second and fourth Thursday every month Qualified therapists (any therapies) For all our Time Out Groups, the volunteers would need to arrive at 1.15pm (to be ready for when clients arrive at 1.30pm) and be able to stay until 4.15pm In the first instance, please contact Lucy Pugh on or her at if you wish to discuss these volunteering opportunities Important Message for the Winter Months: For the health and well being of all at Coping with Cancer, could clients please refrain from attending the groups, if you currently have a cough or cold, or have recently had sickness or diarrhoea, as many of the attendees at the grous have compromised immune systems due to cancer and its treatments. Thank you. Relaxing...Reduces tension and anxiety...helping you cope 6 Coping with Cancer Newsletter - Autumn / Winter 2013

8 Fundraising News The Ultimate Reunion Coping with Cancer was delighted to be presented with a cheque for 1,000 from supporters Winston Bowen and Jeff Chaplin, raised through their Ultimate Reunion event on 22nd June. What started off as an idea for an old school reunion, quickly snowballed into a huge event at the DMU Students Union. Winston & Jeff invited old school friends, teachers, family, friends & work colleagues, inviting those to also invite their friends Sainsburys Fosse Park, Leicester and so it grew. There were even teachers and school friends that came from America and Uganda!

10 Fundraising News Coping with Cancer Runners Cindy Barlow runs the Great North Run - 15th Septmber Here s how the run went in her own words: On the morning of the run the weather was awful, it had been raining all through the night and there was a strong wind. Dressed in our winter woollies we headed for the start line and after what seemed like an eternity the gun sounded and we were off, at mile 2 the heavens opened and it poured down, luckily only lasting for a couple of minutes and then stayed off for the rest of the run. The Red Arrows fly over just as your running over the Tyne Bridge is a memory that will stay with me forever. Mile 9 was a struggle but with the encouragement of my husband Pete and the amazing crowd I managed to carry on and finished in 2hrs 19mins a personal best for me. I would like to thank Coping with Cancer for all their support during a very difficult time if it wasn t for them I can t imagine how I d be now. For all their hard work I managed to raise which is absolutely brilliant BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR KINDNESS AND SUPPORT x Clare Dalby runs 5k at the Great Eastern Run - 13th October Well we did the race although the weather was not kind to us, we had torrential rain, very cold and strong winds but we did it. My brother sponsored us 50 and said if we did it under 35 minutes he would give us an extra 25. My best time in other 5k runs had been 38 minutes so we went all out on the training and for the past month my best friend Sam and I have been training 3 times a week as desperately wanted to get the extra money for CWC. We have definitely got the running bug now and so have decided we are going to try the half marathon next year and again raise money for CWC. Clare has raised around brilliant!
