Spring symbolises growth, hope, new beginnings and fresh starts, so we’re definitely excited to see what it brings!
In this edition of The Nightingale Spring Newsletter 2021 we’re looking forward at what’s to come for our clients, our centre and our fundraising activities in 2021. There are some exciting announcements about our centre and a new community project aiming to use our lockdown crafting and creativity to help those going through cancer treatment.
As April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, we highlight the risk factors and symptoms of bowel cancer because early detection is the best prevention. We also shine a light on the diagnosis and treatment of one of our clients and how bowel cancer affected him.
It has been particularly tough providing support to new clients we haven’t met, for them and for us. When Covid-19 closed the centre to for face-to-face services, we were always worried about whether we could deliver our services remotely. Louise Boon’s story gives us the confidence that we can still support all of our clients and be there for them in the toughest of times. While Alastair, one of our counsellors, touches on how remote counselling differs from in-person sessions and how it’s been just as equally a rewarding experience for him.
