A brand new mobile cancer information bus is to visit Burnley for the first time next week.

The Macmillan Cancer Support bus will be rolling into town on Friday to provide free advice on the disease.

Nicknamed Basil, the bus covers the North West as part of the expansion of the charity’s mobile information and support unit which has doubled its fleet of buses from three to six.

Basil is staffed by a new team of frontline health and social care professionals with more than 25 years’ experience of caring and supporting people living with cancer.

The team will be on hand to answer questions, give advice and inform people about local cancer services and support. The service is open to

anyone, no matter what your concern, whether you are living with or if you have overcome cancer, or if you or a loved one is caring for someone battling cancer.

Basil is due to pull into Burnley bus station at 9am and will be there until 3pm on Friday, October 13th.

If you are unable to visit the unit but have questions about cancer call Macmillan free on 0808 808 00 00, Monday to Friday, from 9am or visit www.macmillan.org.uk/mobile.
