Cork ARC Cancer Support House is a special place for people with cancer and their families to come for practical help and emotional support free of charge. It is a safe haven for cancer patients and their families where they can seek support through our drop-in and telephone service.
The support centre is currently open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 4pm when anyone affected by cancer can telephone or drop in, without an appointment, and talk in confidence with one of the trained volunteer listeners.
Cork ARC is a voluntary organisation and registered charity, who could not exist without the immeasurable support they receive from volunteers and generous supporters.
For many years people from West Cork have been travelling to Cork for cancer support services and the centre in Bantry helps to avoid these long journeys. The Bantry centre serves the needs of the local community as well as the wider regions of West Cork from Clonakilty, Dunmanway, Skibbereen, Sheep’s Head, Mizen and Beara Peninsulas and their islands, and beyond to Kenmare, South Kerry. For years, Cancer Connect has been bringing the people of West Cork to Cork ARC in the city and now they do so for Cork ARC in Bantry.
Unfortunately we all know someone who is suffering with cancer and we have all lost someone close due to cancer and we know the immense strain this can place on familes. This is a fantastic service which essentially provides counselling and psychological services for those in need of it.
Last year we raised almost €1800 for Cancer Connect who transport cancer victims to hospital for treatment in the West Cork area, now I think this is a brilliant follow on.
But, WE NEED YOU !! We you to buy in and get behind this wonderful charity.
We are going to run an all day event on Saturday 11th of November with 100% of all funds going to this charity.
We are going to run a fun and simple partner workout. But you can only bring a non member as your partner ;) The idea behind this charity is offering support to those who need it, so we are going to run a workout where you get the support of a buddy !!
