Birstall BAGS prepares for the Live Band Night, Birstall Social Club January 2009


Birstall BAGS host and attend a number of events throughout the year.

Head to our ‘Upcoming events’ page to join us.

We also fund local charity, Coping with Cancer in Leicestershire and Rutland (established in 1981) to deliver their regular ‘Time-out’ group – a drop-in complementary therapy group for anyone affected by cancer (patients and their families) in Birstall and Wanlip. The sessions provide an informal environment to access support and speak with qualified therapists.

In 2017 BAGs will begin funding three other support groups. The Mayflower Group is for people affected by cancer who wish to learn coping techniques to relax the mind and share worries with others in a similar situation. Led by a complementary therapist and counsellor.

The Bereavement Support group is led by LOROS bereavement volunteers and is for those who have been bereaved as a result of a terminal illness. It’s a chance to talk to others for support and understanding.

The Prostaid Group is a support group for men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
