Macmillan cancer care specialists will be on hand to offer free advice and support on all aspects of coping with cancer in a series of events in Suffolk this month.

The Macmillan bus ‘Dougie’ features a team of specialists who will offer advice and information and answer questions to cancer sufferers and their families.

The bus will be open from 9am to 4pm, and be in Market Hill, Framlingham on January 23, Market Square in Stowmarket the following day, and outside Poundland in Bury St Edmunds on January 25.

A Macmillan spokeswoman said: “Cancer can impact all aspects of your life, not just your health.

“The team are highlighting issues around the financial impact of cancer.

“If you’ve been affected by cancer, your finances might not be your first thought, but many people are faced with extra costs they hadn’t considered.”
