The Art Group from Vine House is led by local artist Sharon Steingold who helps participants learn and develop new artistic skills.

Cancer has impacted all the participants’ lives, either directly or through supporting a family member.

The group, which meets regularly at Vine House, CancerHelp’s Cancer Support Centre on Cromwell Road, Ribbleton, also acts as a support group where members can help each other through difficult times.
