Welcome to the 'Nenna Kind' Centre Chesterfield's Cancer Drop In Centre

A new voluntary, self funding group will soon be able to offer families and friends of cancer sufferers a place to talk with and offer support to other people going through the same thing.

Situated in rooms 4/5 in Chesterfield's Market Hall, the Nenna Kind centre will welcome anyone affected by the disease and give them a chance to share their feelings in confidence and will also provide benefits advice and complimentary therapies such as reflexology and massage. All the services are free.

Barbara Wallace set up the group after her daughter Helen Hinde was diagnosed with terminal cancer two years ago. Needing someone to talk to other than family or medical staff Barbara realised that there were no independent services available.

With help from fellow supporters, the rooms donated by Chesterfield Borough Council, have been painted and furnished and will be open Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturdays, 10am till 5pm.

The name of the centre comes from Helen's family name, Nenna (her younger sister couldn't pronounce Helen and the alternative stuck!) and the fact that when Helen worked in New Whittington Primary school's nursery, a child sent her a Christmas card addressed to 'Mrs Kind'.

It's hoped that the facility will be open officially very soon, but anyone wishing to talk now or donate items of furniture or offer help would be advised to contact Barbara or the team on 07564 152921.















The Nenna Kind centre is situated in Room 5 on the 2nd floor of the Market Hall and offers support and advice in a welcoming environment for anyone affected by cancer. More...
