£4,000 Fife Cancer Charity Funding

Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland has awarded £4,000 to a Dunfermline charity that offers free massage, aromatherapy and reflexology to Fife cancer patients.

Circle of Comfort, set up in 2007, provides complementary therapies in patients’ homes or in hospital. Anyone with a cancer diagnosis can contact the charity or have someone do so on their behalf. The charity also encourages referrals from healthcare professionals.

Bill Walker, MSP for Dunfermline, said: “This is very good news for Circle of Comfort and their patients.

“Circle of Comfort is a registered charity that provides a complementary service for people diagnosed with cancer. Their fully qualified therapists report that patients find the treatments beneficial.

“I am glad to see funding going to this worthwhile cause, and I’d encourage anyone who feels the service would be of benefit to give them a call to discuss suitable therapies.”

Circle of Comfort can be contacted on 01383 728699. Alternatively, their email address is circleofcomfort@btconnect.com.
