The event features a number of stands from organisations including Keeping Abreast, The Pear Tree Fund, Cancer Research UK and St Elizabeth Hospice, and has already been well attended this morning.

Alongside these charity and health stalls you can also meet some of our team including our Macmillan Cancer Support Cancer Care Navigators, and some of our Specialist nurses, including some from our Palliative Care team.

The event is open until 2pm today if you’d like to drop in.

Among the visitors to the Centre this morning was Great Yarmouth Mayor Graham Plant, pictured with two of our Cancer Care Navigators Jo and Lyndsey.

Cancer Care Navigators Jo and Lyndsey are pictured with Mayor Graham Plant wearing his chain of office and robes. A green and white Macmillan Cancer Support pull-up banner and a table of  information from Macmillan are visible next to the three, who stand in front of a yellow wall with fundraising butterflies on.
