Every year members of the Gloucester Breast Cancer Support invite the community to join them in a service of remembrance and thanksgiving.

It's a day to take time out to pay homage to those who have passed, and give thanks for those who have survived any form of cancer.

This year's service will take place on Sunday, October 27 with anyone who has been touched by cancer in their own lives or the lives of those they love are invited to come along.

Taking place at St Paul's Anglican Church Gloucester on Hume Street, the service will include a symbolic Tree of Life upon which people can hang a private message to their loves ones.

Following the service, there will be morning tea in the church hall.

The service will be shared with the members of the Gloucester Prostate Cancer Support Group. Both groups support all women and men with any diagnosis of cancer and their families.

Each group relies on the generous financial contributions of community members and organisations to help support those affected by cancer.

The donations allow the members to provide emotional and practical support in a private and confidential manner, through home visits, flower deliveries to hospitals, fuel vouchers for transport to treatments and food hampers for those in need of a little extra support.

Gloucester Breast Cancer Support Group's annual service of remembrance and thanksgiving will be held at 2pm on Sunday, October 27. Everyone is welcome. For more information contact Denise Reilly on 6558 4175 or 0427 260 791.

Gloucester Breast Cancer Support Group meets on the first Monday of the month at 1.30pm.
