Macmillan to hold day of wellbeing
PEOPLE affected by cancer are invited to find out more about the range of support available to them next Thursday.
The regular event in Southport takes a slightly different focus on November 1 with the emphasis on wellbeing and feeling better about yourself despite everything that you are going through.
Southport Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre, a joint partnership set up by Macmillan and NHS Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is holding a health and wellbeing event with Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, at the Royal Clifton Hotel in Southport from 2pm until 4.30pm.
The centre has asked its service users to demonstrate some examples of how can dress to feel more confident about how they look.
They have also invited companies that sell organic cosmetics and wigs.
And for a bit of fun there will be a caricaturist and a table magician.
Volunteers from Sefton OPERA have also been welcomed back to offer complimentary therapies.
Tanya Mulvey, Macmillan community navigator manager at Southport and Formby Macmillan Information & Support Centre said: “Following feedback from previous events we wanted to try something a little bit different this time.”
Anyone affected by cancer, either recently or in the past, as well as family and friends supporting others are welcome.
It is free and refreshments are provided, but booking is essential.
Call 01704 533024 or email sfccg. email@example.com
