Macmillan Cancer Support will be stopping off in Wisbech to answer questions, provide support and give information on local cancer services.

A team of Macmillan’s cancer information specialists will be at the Market Place in Wisbech on Thursday September 15 from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

The team will also be providing specialist advice and information and skin cancer.

Wendy Marchant, a Macmillan information and support specialist on the unit, said: “Skin cancer, if caught early, is very treatable and actually has one of the highest survival rates of all cancers.

“Being sun aware is key. Our advice is to avoid sun beds, wear a high SPF sun screen with a four star rating or more so it will block out UVA as well as UVB rays, and cover up in the sun.”
