Crocus Fundraising A little over 10 years ago the organisation known as Crocus came into existence. The letters - C R O C U S stand for Cancer Resource Of Caring, Understanding & Support. Crocus is a Peer Support Group for those living with a cancer diagnosis, who are at different stages of their journey. A Cancer diagnosis is a traumatic time in a person's life. Crocus is there to offer support, no matter what stage of this very difficult journey a person may be at. It is also there to assist those most affected by their loved ones diagnosis. Crocus offers understanding, support and confidentiality in a caring and nurturing environment. Crocus has available a wide range of complimentary therapies and support programmes, which are available at various times throughout the year, such as: Tai Chi; Yoga/Pilates; Meditation; Art; Informative Talks; Counselling Services; Complimentary Therapies e.g. Reflexology, Reiki, Aromatherphy Massage, Indian Head Massage, Acupuncture. These services are available free of charge and can be availed of by family members. Calling in to the Centre for a chat and a cuppa is always welcome and talking to someone who has gone through, or is going through, a similar programme of treatment can be soothing and relaxing for mind and body. Originally Crocus was mainly for ladies but in recent years more and more men were becoming members and it was decided to set up a Mens Group within Crocus which is called ‘The Mens Den’. This group meets every other Tuesday in the Crocus Centre (next one is next week on Tuesday April 19th). We encourage any man who is awaiting test results or who has been diagnosed or who is going through treatment or who has completed treatment to pay Crocus a visit. Crocus depends completely on donations and fund-raising events and indeed the public have been extremely generous over the years. At the moment and for the past couple of months a big effort has been made to provide transport for members attending treatment or appointments. All members of Crocus are entitled to use this excellent service. I can personally recommend using this service as last week I was having tests in Dublin and was not allowed to drive for 24 hours afterwards and so I availed of the Crocus Cruiser which was excellent. To help cover these expenses Crocus has organised a huge Raffle for a Brand New Seat Leon car and the winner will be drawn at the big Quiz Night in the Westenra Hotel on Wednesday April 27th. Tickets for the car are still available at 1 for €20 and 3 for €50. They will be on sale in the Shopping Centre and Flemings Store on Saturday,16th and your contribution would be really appreciated. The Stall was in Emyvale on Friday and the people there have been very generous and we thank them very much and thanks too to Glynn of Centra there for his assistance.
