CHARITY IN FOCUS


 July / August - Primrose Centre

This  is the Primrose Centre, a converted 1864 chapel in Prudence Lane which is adjacent to the PRUH. The Centre is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am - 4pm as a support for people suffering from Breast Cancer. It is a registered charity depending totally on charitable donations. www.primrosecentre.org.uk

Tel: 01689 880218 info@primrosecentre.org.uk

If you would like to visit you can pop in and we will be delighted to share with you how the centre can help.

The charity is so very grateful to you all for your support for the Primrose Centre. Most of you will know from members of your church community what we do and why we need your support. We are a breast cancer support centre helping those who are receiving treatment for, or recovering from, breast cancer and their families who often go through a very difficult time. We offer our breast cancer visitors Reflexology, Reiki, Mindfulness, Lymphoedema Drainage, Talk Therapy and Nutritional advice. Family members may have Mindfulness and Talk Therapy which can be really helpful to them.

We do not receive any financial support from the NHS and are dependent on donations, fundraising and legacies we receive with no inheritance tax paid by the donor’s family which is excellent.

The Centre, located in the old chapel by the PRUH, has a lovely, calm and tranquil environment with beautiful gardens and is loved by all who come. We are so pleased it is a charity local to you and we welcome you to visit post COVID if you would like.

Thank you again for your support!
Mary Spinks (Chief Executive

Your Support for the Primrose Centre is much appreciated.





About Charity in Focus

In matters of faith and religion talk can be easy.  The bible teaches us that if we cannot love the brother or sister who we can see how can we love God who we cannot.

At St. Giles we seek to put love into action by supporting a range of charities and good causes.  

There is obviously a tremendous amount of need in our own country and across the world with many charities seeking our support. During the course of the year a number of designated charities are supported by our community.  Funds are raised in various ways including Coffee Mornings, Cake Sales, donations and sponsored events. 

There are specific charities which are supported each year on a regular basis,  the remaining months are available for parishioners to choose a charity whose aims and objectives are close to their heart.  


If you would like any information about the Charity in Focus scheme, do please get in touch with us.
