Welcome to CREST Cancer Support
Many cancer charities support just the patient, but CREST believes that families and carers often suffer as much, so we are here for them too.
CREST is different because it is a local charity run entirely by volunteers who give their time and expertise for free.
Relax and calm your mind and body
Keith has been treating CREST members with Reiki at the Shepperton Wig Company for some time now. As we are unable to meet face to face at the moment he has kindly recorded a short piece to help us all relax and calm the mind and body.
Some breathing, relaxing and physical exercises on YouTube
Our October Relaxation Day at the White Lodge Centre
It was a lovely sunny day for our Autumn Relaxation Day. We were spoiled for choice with Massage, Reflexology and Reiki complementary therapies and Extend exercise, Relaxation and Flower Arranging group workshops. Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing day.
Our visit to Frogmore House in August
In August a large group of CREST members and volunteers had a magnificent day out at the rarely open royal residence, Frogmore House, in the grounds of Windsor Castle. Do look out for news of future events in our next newsletter.
Our visit to the Royal Pavillion, Brighton, in June
Our coach full of CREST members had an amazing outing to the Royal Pavillion in Brighton in June. The building has survived arson, storms and fire, and is a much loved treasure of the people of Brighton. We all want to go back again!
A Day with the Household Cavalry in May
We felt an honoured party when we visited the home of the Queen’s official bodyguard, the Household Cavalry in Windsor to learn about the history and current operational role of the Life Guards. We had a very enjoyable day!
Spring Flower Planting at Notcutts in March
CREST members went to Notcutts Garden Centre in March to learn how to make a spring planter. After all that hard work we enjoyed fresh cooked scones with lashings of clotted cream and pots of tea, giving a feeling of satisfaction all round and a very positive start to Spring.
