Cuppa and a Chat 2024

Online peer facilitated support group

Upcoming group sessions on Zoom:
Monday 26 February 2024

11am and 7pm (two sessions on both days)

Tēnā koutou katoa 
I'd like to invite you to share an informal Zoom 'cuppa and chat' with me on 
Friday 26 January and Monday 26 February.
I'm hosting two sessions on both days, one at 11am and the other at 7pm, and I hope you'll be able to join me. 
We'll share our experiences of breast cancer 'over a cuppa', and give and receive support within a confidential and peer-facilitated space. 
Please pre-register for the group you would like to attend - there's more information below - and I'll look forward to seeing you at one - or both! - of our sessions.   

- Liz Pennington, Chair Breast Cancer Support Aotearoa


What we'll do
We'll talk and share our experiences with others within a confidential and safe space.

We welcome anyone with a lived experience of breast cancer (of any age and stage of their breast cancer journey) to participate in this peer-led online support group. The group provides a welcoming space to connect with others who share similar experiences, a place to give and receive support.

We know lives are busy and so we're offering two group sessions, one at 11am and the other at 7pm. Both sessions will run approximately one hour.

If you'd like to talk, listen, and share with others, grab a cuppa and join us. Both sessions will be facilitated by BCS Chair, Liz Pennington, who is a breast cancer survivor and works within the health and wellbeing space.
