Members of the public dropped in and enjoy cake and coffee and chat with representatives from both organisations.


Joint working between both organisations was established when a cancer information stand, an extension of the Macmillan Information Centre services, was placed in the library.  It offers a range of free literature with leaflets and booklets to take away on topics such as screening and prevention, financial support, the emotional aspects of cancer, hair loss, and also wider issues relating to health and wellbeing of those affected by cancer.


A Macmillan volunteer is also available at the library on the last Friday of each month, between 11am and 2pm.  Members of the public can drop in for general support and guidance relating to any of the booklets provided.  They can also talk about issues that can affect those facing cancer in a confidential and calm environment.


For further information on the help available through the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service contact the service on 650735.
