The Boys Club Cork
The Girls Club Cork has achieved so much in the space of two years. Our member numbers are growing daily and the word is getting out there about the fun and positive cancer support we are providing for the women of Cork and their families and friends. So much so that the Club has been inundated with requests to start a "Boys Club" to provide support for all the men in Cork, their families and friends who have been touched by cancer. The answer, of course, was yes!
So over the course of 2012 and 2013 we hope to get The Boys Club Cork (Cancer Support Group) up and running with the help of our members and of course YOU! So guys... if you, your friends or family members have been touched by cancer and are interested in joining The Boys Club Cork or simply volunteering your time for free, please get in touch.
