People affected by cancer will be able to access a new virtual support centre that has been launched by Big C.

The cancer charity's new service will provide information, help and news to anyone living with cancer or their loved ones.

The centre can be accessed via a computer, tablet or mobile phone and is one of the charity's initiatives as part of its 40th anniversary year.

Greg Pye, Big C brand and communications manager, said: "The online support centre provide vital support for those who can't travel to our centres and provides a point of access to Big C services for those who may be apprehensive about visiting us for the first time."

Some of the resources provided are a glossary, details of hospitals and information on how to access Big C services.
