Macmil­lan to hold day of well­be­ing

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

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.
