About Us

The Ridgeway Breast Care Support Group can offer support to anybody who has had, or is still going through treatment for breast cancer.

About Us


Learn more about our Swindon based breast care support group

We are a group of volunteers who have come together to help and support those affected by BC. We raise our own funds in any way we can - from selling trolley tokens, knitted brooches or cards, to holding a summer fair in the country or a fundraising Italian meal out at a local restaurant.

Totally self-funded

The group got together in 2010 when a number of patients and hospital staff identified a real need for a support group in the Swindon area.
The Ridgeway Breast Care Support Group (named after the geographical area rather than the hospital name) can offer support to anybody who has had, or is still going through treatment for breast cancer.

Friendly & welcoming

We welcome “other halves”, family members and friends as well. All of our meetings are very relaxed and friendly so feel free to bring someone along with you!

"Instead of telling you who WE are, the most important thing about this group is that it is for YOU!"

We like to offer a mixture of regular events – monthly coffee mornings which you can click here to find out more, monthly evening talks and socials. Read more about our evening talks, socials, and pamper sessions every couple of months throughout the year, by viewing our events page for more information.

Care Packs & Regular Events

We also give out “goody bags” or “care packs” at the Ridgeway and Great Western hospitals and are also planning some “one off” events such as: a summer walk in the woods followed by drinks at a local hostelry, afternoon tea with one of your supporters, a family fun day at the park, our annual fund-raiser at Fabio’s in November and a craft evening and social.  If we are blessed with a good summer, we are also planning to go down to the seaside!

If you would like to join us, we also take part in charity walks and runs such as the Starlight Walk for the Prospect Hospice on 22 June this year.

Evening meetings

Our evening meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at various venues. Our guest speakers cover a wide range of topics and include medical updates, complementary therapies and lifestyle advice.

All of our meetings are very relaxed and friendly – feel free to bring someone along with you. If you would like further information about the group, please contact us through the contact form on this website.
