Cancer information event

ASHFIELD Voluntary Action is holding a Cancer Information Day next month for anyone who has been affected by the disease.

The event will take place at Kirkby’s Festival Hall on 3rd November, between 10am-3pm.

Organisers say there will be short talks, therapy sessions, nutrition, advice on entitlements and a range of displays complemented with a free lunch - which needs to be booked in advance. The Macnillan bus will also be in attendance.

Steve Shaw, of Ashfield Voluntary Action, said: “The event has developed with Macmillan, East Midlands Cancer Network and Department of Works and Pensions and promises to be informative and enjoyable.

“Cancer affects most people’s lives and this open event is the first for some time in Ashfield so we are hoping for a good attendance.
