CLIMB cancer support
Registration is now open for Purple House's 'CLIMB' programme for children, starting on Saturday, September 14.
The programme is for children aged five to 12 who are experiencing the impact of a parent's cancer diagnosis.
Sessions run from 11 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. for six weeks in the Parnell Road centre.
CLIMB stands for Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery. It's an enjoyable, sharing, interactive experience and a time for the children to come together to deal with their feelings.
Throughout the programme the children will develop an understanding of cancer, and the myths and fears that children can hold about cancer will be dispelled.
The programme is creative, using drama, arts and play. They are also based on having fun together and meeting new friends. Call 01 2866966 to book.
