Macmillan takes to the road
FREE cancer information and support is coming to Ormskirk today.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s Mobile Information and Support Service will be visiting the area, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer any questions.
The team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by.
Now that summer is almost here, the team will also be providing specialist information about sun safety and skin cancer, although the team say they will be unable to perform skin checks.
The service will be at Ormskirk Market, on Church Street, Ormskirk, between 9am and 4pm.
Debbie Smith, spokeswoman for the mobile information team, said: “Most skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun.
“This may be longterm exposure, or short periods of intense sun exposure and burning.
“Using sunbeds can also increase your risk.
“Our team will be on hand to answer questions about sun safety and for any other cancer-related queries.”
