The Newton Stewart Cancer Drop In Centre held a very successful Information Day recently.

Volunteers and staff talked to members of the public at Sainsbury’s in Newton Stewart, providing advice and answering questions about the service. In return, passers- by supported the Centre very generously and raised over £273. Anyone who has any concerns about cancer - whether for themselves, a family member or a friend - is welcome to pop in for a coffee or a tea and time to talk with an experienced nurse who can provide programmes tailored to each individual’s needs. There are leaflets, access to the internet and the chance to meet others in a similar situation. The Centre is open from 10 am to 3 pm on Thursdays at the Riverside Day Centre. No appointments are necessary, but anyone wishing to have a chat over the phone can ring 07733 261808.
