A Sense of Place, a linocut print on paper by Orlanda Broom (born 1974). Orlanda Broom's work - life drawings and designs - will be for sale at an exhibition being held next weekend at Tulls Barn, Standford, Hampshire, in aid of the Macmillan Service Midhurst, a branch of the national charity Cancer Relief Macmillan Fund, writes Joanna Gibbon.

Other painters exhibiting will be Emma Dunbar and Fiona Millais. There will also be metal candlesticks, clocks and mirrors designed by Saraj Guha; ceramic jewellery and pots by Camilla Lawson; and hand thrown and turned domestic stoneware by Robert Goldsmith. The exhibition, on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September, begins each day at 10am and closes at 5pm. For further information, contact: Dinah Hardman, Tulls Barn, Tulls Lane, Standford, Headley, Hampshire, telephone 0428 751233.

Like other branches of the fund, the Macmillan Service Midhurst cares for cancer patients and their families: it treats 130 patients in their homes each week, and supports a 12-bed unit for terminally ill people at the King Edward VII Hospital, Midhurst, West Sussex. The ward has two consultants, five Macmillan trained nurses, other ward staff and 100 local volunteers. Its annual budget is over pounds 800,000 of which 25 per cent is paid by the local health authority, the rest coming from donations. For further information, contact: Macmillan Service Midhurst, King Edward VII Hospital, Midhurst, West Sussex GU29 OBL, telephone 0730 816065.

The Carningli Trust, established in 1985, is a permanent residential community for young people with mental handicaps, aged between 18 and 35. The trust owns a nine-acre smallholding in West Wales. It keeps a variety of animals and has a walled garden, a greenhouse, a workshop, a weavery, a pottery and a crafts room. The trust aims to provide a secure base to encourage community members to develop. The conversion of the farm's barn and stables - to provide more accommodation and educational and therapeutic facilities - is nearly complete. The trust needs to raise about pounds 30,000 to pay off the mortgage.

The Carningli Trust, Glyntaf House, Login, Whitland, Dyfed SA34 OTU, telephone 0994 419401.

Calder Valley Club organises social activities, classes, outings, trips, lunches and constant care from qualified staff for physically handicapped people living in Calderdale. At present the club is restricted to offering facilities to 50 people for four days a week: it provides a meeting place for people with disabilities where they can learn new skills. The club is restoring and specially adapting a redundant mill in Hebden Bridge, so that it can increase its membership and the range of the programmes it offers. It needs pounds 200,000 to complete building work.

Calder Valley Club, 2 High Street, Blackshaw Head, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire HX7 7HY, telephone 0422 844708.
