Care Days providing cancer patients the opportunity of being pampered free of charge for a morning


Care Days© enables those in the Paphos district who have been diagnosed with cancer in the last 3 years (including their partner), or anyone recently bereaved through cancer; the opportunity of being pampered FREE of charge for a morning and to 

“ Live the Dream!”

Care Days© can now offer 7 options to around 300 cancer patients a YEAR and also to those recently bereaved through cancer. Since Care Days began, we have raised an incredible €18k in services offered to cancer patients free of charge! 

Care Days© was launched on Viva FM Radio in mid May 2021, thanks to the most generous support offered by Dave Asher of Viva FM Radio and Charlotte Hadjikyriacou, we had our first patients enjoying Care Days© from the beginning of June 2021. 

The Care Days© project would never have got started without encouragement and support from Viva FM who have been supporting Care Days© from day one. Care Days© would also like to thank CPSG and PASYKAF for their support.



Care Days is delighted to confirm that the beautiful seafront Sea Caves Lounge Bar Cafe & Restaurant in Peyia has very kindly agreed to join the Care Days team of supporters!

They offer anyone diagnosed with cancer in the last 3 years plus a partner or carer, or anyone recently bereaved through cancer plus a friend, one free drink overlooking what must be one of the finest seaviews in Cyprus with sunsets thrown in as well!
This offer is available once, even if you have already enjoyed a different Care Day, but MUST be prebooked using the booking form.
You are more  than welcome to enjoy a second drink or a delicious home cooked meal at your own expense and if you wish to have a meal, please tick the box on our booking form and, depending on availability, we will try to book you a seafront table. 
This offer is available either for lunchtime or evenings on a Tuesday and is strictly limited to only 2 people a week. 
Our Founder, Andrew, is a regular customer there and he has found that the magnificent seaview helps put cancer in perspective. 
All of us at Care Days would like to thank the owners of Sea Caves restaurant and bar for their very generous and thoughtful offer. 
"Care Days is bringing light into what can be a real scary and dark place for cancer patients.
Thank you for the great job you are doing. Keep doing it."

If anyone who has lost a child would like someone to talk to about it, who has had the same awful experience, please email Andrew at
and he will arrange for one of our Care Days volunteers who has also lost a child, to contact you.


Donate Your Locks!

Pasykaf and Orizondas currently collect hair over 20cm long for cancer patients who have lost their hair through chemotherapy, and they then pay for this hair to be used to make wigs for cancer patients free of charge in Cyprus and Crete; as wigs are very expensive to buy.
We would really appreciate those who have long hair over 20cm cut, to please donate it to Care Days.
Markos Hair Company Ltd will ensure that hair 25cms and over is delivered to PASYKAF through Care Days and hair 20-24cms long will be delivered by Care Days to Orizondas in Crete.
Please do something really great today and help people with cancer at no extra cost to yourself.
