Macmillan Cancer Support’s Welsh information and support bus, Bronwen, will be visiting locations in Wrexham and Flintshire during the week commencing next week.

Bronwen comes with her friendly team of Macmillan information and support specialists, a team of frontline health and social care professionals with years of experience in caring and supporting people living with cancer.

The bus hosts two electronic information screens, a private room for sensitive conversations and two iPads to enable people to find the information they need on the spot.

Macmillan would like to encourage anyone living nearby or simply passing by who have questions about cancer to come and say hello.

On Monday 14 May, Bronwen bus will be parked up in Queens Square on Rhosddu Road between 8.30am – 5.30pm.

The next day, Tuesday 15 May, visitors can drop into the bus outside Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre, from 8am to 5.30pm.

On Wednesday 16 May, the bus will be on Earl Street in Mold between 8am and 3pm.

The team will be available on Thursday 17 May on the High Street in Holywell between 9am and 3pm.

On the last day, Friday 18 May, Bronwen bus will be on Church Street in Flint and visitors can drop in from 9am to 3pm.

Moray Hayman, Bronwen Team Lead Cancer Information and Support Specialist says: “We encourage anyone who has been affected by cancer to come and see us, whether they’re living with cancer, have been recently diagnosed, caring for someone with cancer or worried about a loved one.

“As well as answering questions on the day, we can signpost to other cancer services in the area and provide information on a range of issues, including financial advice and wellbeing.

“Even if you don’t have a specific question to ask, our friendly team are always available for a chat.”

Richard Pugh, Head of Services for Macmillan in Wales, said: “At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and we’re here to support you.

“Our mobile information team travel around Wales and the rest of the UK visiting local communities, providing cancer information and advice on the ground.

“The new Welsh vehicle is smaller and lighter, and will help the team to access places Macmillan has previously not been able to get to, reaching even more people affected by cancer in the process.”
