Good Morning from Slynedales! We are just about to start a morning clean up, concentrating on the woodwork workshop and helping our gardener Simon do some winter grounds maintenance. Thanks to everyone who is lending a hand.


Well, as you will be aware, the group of us who “Jumped for CancerCare” last Sunday all did it and got back safely. It was an amazing experience and thank you to everyone who supported and made it possible, especially Helen.

The day before another group of supporters took part in the Badass Mucker Challenge which sounded like hard work, but loads of fun!


On Monday I went along to the Town Hall in Lancaster to meet up with Angela Jackson, Head of Human Resources. They are really keen to promote CancerCare within the workforce and for us to form part of the healthy workplace offering for members of staff who might benefit from our services.

The next day I was up in Kendal, firstly, at a meeting of the Kendal Gateway Partnership, who have finally approved their new constitution. Later, I had a really productive meeting with Jon Owen who is Development Manager for the Brathay Trust, and keen to work with us on the development of our youth service, by completing some research with young people.

Whatever you are doing have a good weekend (although no jumping from 11,000 feet this week!)

Regards, Neil
