THE big green Macmillan Cancer Support bus visited Stamford this week with staff ready to answer any questions and provide information about the disease.

The Mobile Information Service was parked in Red Lion Square for most of Wednesday last week, equipped with a team of cancer specialists.

Macmillan lead information support specialist Helen Tuvey said: “Our Macmillan information team answer any concern about cancer, including information about treatments, side effects, benefits advice and what support is available locally. We’re here for anyone affected by cancer; those with a cancer diagnosis, friends, relatives and carers.”

In 2011, more than 26,000 people stepped onboard the team’s two buses, which cover the North of England and the East Midlands.
