Cancer Champions Programme

 

Qube have partnered with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund to deliver this fantastic programme across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin! The programme uses volunteer initiatives to help reach out to the communities that are most in need of the support and awareness of the health services, including cancer screening.

Social Groups

 

Qube run our fantastic social groups twice a week, and they are always well received by our members. Carol and Bella, our Well-being and Befriending Co-ordinators, always have a brilliant programme of events for the months ahead, but most of all the groups are great for getting out, meeting new people and having a good chat with friends!
