Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service is visiting Norfolk later this month giving out free advice and support to people across the county.

The team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by, whether they’re living with cancer, or care for someone who is. Specialists will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and people should be aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease.

Information and support specialist Wendy Marchant said: “Knowing what changes to look for and when to see your doctor could make a real difference. Don’t be scared if you have symptoms. Get them checked.”
