A NEW cancer support group has held its inaugural meeting in Daventry.

The first meeting took the form of a coffee morning on Friday last week at the Reach for Health gym.

The group was set up by Jo Davis, whose own battle with breast cancer inspired her to want to help others.

Mrs Davis, who works at the gym, said she was pleased with how it went.

She said: It went really well, we had eight people turn up for the coffee morning overall which was designed to be an introduction to the support group.

“I think this will be one of those things that grows over time but I was very pleased with the first meeting.

“I wanted to set it up to be able to provide support for people who were in that position.

“People included those who have come through their treatment through to those who have just been diagnosed and there were also people there who were able to help them out.”

Further meetings of the group are also planned but no dates have yet been set.
