A second support service event for people living with cancer is being held by a north-east charity in an Aberdeenshire town today.
Banchory’s Clan Cancer Support base in Banchory’s Ternan West Parish Church, on the town’s High Street, is offering people struggling with the condition to visit Estelle Robb, a provider of specialist salon services, today.
The event was spurred on by a well-attended open night at their centre which gave cancer suffers information about the services on offer to them.
These include nutrition services, skin consultations, lingerie advice and bra fitting.
Clan area coordinator, Gemma Powell, said: “We have a wonderful specialist team that works as part of the salon and nutrition service committed to helping anyone affected by cancer.
“The well-being open evening has led to requests for further bra fitting and prosthesis support appointments.
“These are being offered on a stand-alone basis at the moment, but if there is enough demand we could look to offer this in the community on a permanent basis.
“We aim to make it easier for people in the area living with cancer to access support locally and would encourage anyone who wants to find out more about our services in Deeside to get in touch.”
Ms Robb will be at the Clan centre from 10am to 4pm.
