Concern Wadebridge, North Cornwall Coast PCN ,Age UK Cornwall & Isles of Scilly in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support are opening a Cancer Café for anyone in the Wadebridge area who is affected by cancer.

You may have a diagnosis, being going through or have finished treatment. You may be a family member or a friend and you may be caring for someone.

However, you are affected by cancer, you will be very welcome.

The café is free to anyone affected by cancer thanks to very generous donations from The Bridge On Wool in Wadebridge who has collected the money through its weekly Bonus Ball.

Wellbeing Project Coordinator (Macmillan) Mary Austin said: “It’s a chance to talk about how you are doing, share tips on what has helped you or just enjoy a coffee and some good conversation with people in a similar situation as yourself.

The café is non-clinical – meaning we can’t offer medical advice. However, there will be people from Age UK Cornwall & Isles of Scilly and a Social Prescriber to listen and help you decide and find the support you need.”

Manager of Concern Wadebridge Emma Burt said: “We are over the moon to be working with so many organisations to bring this wonderful facility to Wadebridge. Everyone has been affected by Cancer in some way so I am sure it will be appreciated and help bring some comfort in times of need.”

Starting on Friday 12th August, and every 2nd and 4th Friday in the month from 10.30am-12.30pm at The John Betjeman Centre ( Concern Wadebridge), Southern Way, Wadebridge, PL27 7BX.
