Clear skies and glorious sunshine created the perfect backdrop for Summer Tea with the All-Wales Cancer Community on Wednesday 14th June at the Senedd.
Tenovus Cancer Care joined with stakeholders, Members of the Senedd, Sing with Us choir members, and members from their All-Wales Cancer Community to celebrate the first anniversary of the All-Wales Cancer Community.
Launched in 2022, the All-Wales Cancer Community provides a space for people affected by cancer in Wales to tell Tenovus Cancer Care about the issues most important to them, share their experiences and to give their opinion on a variety of cancer-related topics. Members of the community are given opportunities to help inform cancer services, research and policy.
On arrival and throughout the event, guests were invited to interact and get talking around four topic tables themed around diagnosis, treatment, information & communication and living with & beyond cancer. Tenovus Cancer Care staff and Steering Group members of the All-Wales Cancer Community were at the tables encouraging conversations between Community members, stakeholders and MSs.
Summer tea refreshments were served – including some vibrant cupcakes - before the beautiful sound of the Barry and Cardiff South Sing with Us choirs filled the room, marking the start of the speeches section of the event.
