Information & Support Events

Our support events provide information and opportunities for discussion on areas of relevance to people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Anyone wishing to attend a session must meet the Sara Lee Trust Referral Criteria and be referred by a healthcare professional. On receiving a referral we will contact you to make your booking/s. Places are limited and all attendees must have a confirmed booking. Sessions are suitable for people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illness and their carers/loved ones, with the exception of some sessions, which are available only to people directly affected by the topic.

All sessions take place at St. Michael's Hospice in the Garden Room.

Creative Therapy

Monday 17 February, 2pm - 3.30pm

This session will introduce how working with metaphor, stories and images can help us play, express feelings, and also, perhaps more significantly, find ways through difficulties, by using what psychologists might call our ‘innate wisdom’. This is not about art, or being ‘creative’ and requires no skills. We will use ready-made images (postcard images) and our imagination, through visualisation and story, to explore the healing potential of the arts and imagination. 

Suitable for Patients and carers/loved ones.

Delivered by Deborah Kelly, Arts Psychotherapist & Group Facilitator at The Sara Lee Trust, and former palliative care nurse


Monday 24 February, 2pm - 3.30pm

Managing lymphoedema. Discussion, advice and support. 

Suitable for People affected by lymphoedema only.

Delivered by Jane Board, Lymphoedema Consultant Nurse Practitioner and Julia Anderson, Lymphoedema Practitioner / Lymphoedema Specialist Services

The Sara Lee Trust is a much needed service for patients who have a medical condition which is severely impacting on their lives. The service is invaluable for providing patients with supportive care either through complementary therapies or counselling, when they are struggling to cope with their situation. Not only is it a great support for the patients but this also extends to family members who are often just as stressed if not more so than the patient.
