Ten-year Celebration Event Thanks Cancer Awareness Volunteers

10 July 2018 Local News


A celebration event to mark 10 years of support offered by a cancer awareness team in the city has been held today

Around 20 passionate, dedicated and caring volunteers make up the team. They give their time freely to offer peer-to-peer support on breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancer, advice on screening programmes, how to self-check and symptoms to look for.

This is the 10th year these local residents have been providing support within their communities, often sharing their own personal experiences of being diagnosed with cancer and stressing the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.

The event has been arranged to recognise the much needed support they have provided.
