SUPPORT GROUPS & CHARITIES
Cancer Research Campaign: Holmes Chapel Local Committee
The object is to raise funds and collect donations for Cancer Research UK.
If anyone has any donations or feels that they could help to organise a fund raising event for us, please contact:
Guide Dogs: Holmes Chapel and Congleton Fundraising Group
We are a group of volunteers who are focussed on raising funds for Guide Dogs. We aim to run something fundraising most months, including collections, bag packs, coffee mornings and afternoon teas, stalls at events and are very happy to try other ideas.
We usually include children’s activities at our events and specialise in excellent home-baked cakes!
New volunteers are welcome, whether they wish to help occasionally or more often
St Luke's (Cheshire) Hospice: Holmes Chapel Support Group
We organise events from Coffee mornings and Street Collections to Jazz/Country/Blues evenings throughout the year to raise funds for the Hospice.
The Committee meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at members’ homes to plan activities, and we have a network of ‘friends’ who assist at events.
Christian Communicare: Holmes Chapel & Area
We are a Voluntary Caring Group working in co-operation with the Health Centre to provide, for those in need in our local community, a transport service for medical reasons, a befriending / visiting service and a weekly service for visiting the village for a social coffee morning.
We are always in need of new drivers for the car service.

If you or someone close to you has been given a recent diagnosis of dementia we understand that you may not want to talk to us straight away.
You may be feeling a range of emotions and unsure where to turn to for help. The Dementia Reablement Service is here to support you, and those around you, to take positive steps towards your future.
The service is free and provides lots of information and practical advice to enable you to:
