The Crafty Creatives- Cancer Support Group

Parkside Methodist Church
Wakefield
WF1 2PN

Following a cancer diagnosis last year, Claire Stewart (Director of The Crafty Creatives) established a support group dedicated to providing assistance for individuals affected by cancer through providing weekly craft sessions specifically designed for this purpose. These sessions are open to beginners, making it accessible to anyone without prior experience. The group fosters a welcoming and friendly environment, where participants can engage in various crafts and activities.

The primary objective of the support group is to offer individuals diagnosed with cancer or those affected by it an opportunity to acquire new skills and engage in enjoyable and diverse activities each week. To ensure a more personalized experience, the group size is intentionally kept small, accommodating individuals who may experience anxiety in larger group settings. Due to the high demand for participation, we operate on a booking system to effectively manage the group dynamics and ensure everyone receives the necessary attention and support.
