Support centre for cancer patients reopens after six months

A support centre for cancer patients and their families is opening for the first time in six months.

Dereham Cancer Care will re-open its Support and Information Centre on October 6 - the first time since the coronavirus pandemic shut its doors in March.

The centre in Baldings Yard, Cowper Road, Dereham, provides emotional, social and practical support to people in the Dereham area whose lives are touched by cancer.

A trustee for the centre, Zoë Flint, said: “We are so so pleased to open, albeit on a smaller scale and by appointment only because of Covid. But we continue to be here for people touched directly of indirectly by cancer.

“Our volunteers are looking forward to welcoming people back to the centre, and providing support for cancer patients and their families.”
