Thanks to fundraising initiatives and generous donations by companies, individuals and groups, to date we have managed to establish the following:

  • A 24-hour confidential helpline.
  • We hold informal monthly support meetings and we hope to provide a safe and friendly environment where any women of any age or at any stage of their treatment or recovery can come and find support with other women
  • Purchased an extensive collection of wigs to help all chemotherapy patients when choosing a wig. We also provide wig care packs.
  • Purchased several state of the art reclining chairs together with personal stereos and a selection of CDs for use by all patients at Bulstrode House (chemotherapy treatment centre) to aid relaxation and even enable sleep during treatment.
  • Supported breast care staff on specialised courses.
  • Supported Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Care, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Macmillan Cancer Research, Les Bourgs Hospice & breast cancer research with Hope for Guernsey.
  • Paying for lymphoedema treatment for all breast cancer patients.
  • Paying for ladies currently receiving treatment to have regular holistic therapy.
  • Supplying Spa day vouchers to ladies who have finished their treatment, for them to enjoy some 'TLC' when they're feeling well enough.
  • Giving every breast cancer patient in hospital in Guernsey a pink bag with useful items to help them feel better during their hospital stay.
  • Training members of our group on effective Listening and Responding skills and Dealing with Loss and Bereavement.
  • The Look Good, Feel Better programme was set up in Guernsey in 2006, for all cancer patients - for further details please see
  • We have purchased a cupboard for Bulstrode House to properly display the different types of wig available, which we previously bought to help patients choose what suits them best.
  • We have set up a “help at home” service whereby we will organise cleaning/ironing help and pay for it if required, for ladies recovering from surgery or currently undergoing treatment.
  • We have helped fund the new Breast Unit.
  • We have furnished the complementary therapy room in the new Oncology Unit at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
  • We organised the hugely successful Sunset Coastal Walks of 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017. Funds raised from the walks have gone towards our ongoing costs in paying for lymphoedema treatment, the new 'one stop' Breast Unit at the hospital, and to pay for specialist diagnostic machinery for the Breast Unit. Funds raised from the most recent walks have paid for a new mammography machine which received an official 'opening' by Lady Corder in January 2018.
  • We set up Barney's Travelogue which documents the worldwide adventures of our mascot Barney with members of the Pink Ladies, which shows that there is life after breast cancer.
  • We set up this website which we hope is a useful resource for anyone affected by breast cancer.
  • We are working on a varied list of speakers for the forthcoming year which will ensure that women are fully informed about cancer, its treatments, complementary therapies, nutrition and anything else considered helpful.
Our aims for the future are to continue to offer emotional and practical support for breast cancer patients in Guernsey and to raise funds to improve wherever possible the comfort, care and facilities provided for them and to participate in local and national awareness raising initiatives.
