An offshoot of the Leighton Linslade Cancer Support Group opens in Dunstable tonight (April 16).
It’s being held at Dunstable Community Fire Station on Brewers Hill Road at 7pm.
Organiser John Dickon – a member of the Leighton group – said: “We feel the time is right to launch something similar in Dunstable as we now have the experience and a degree of expertise in the area.
“We understand the Mayor of Dunstable will be attending, as well as various medical professionals.
“But the most important attendees will of course be Dunstable’s cancer sufferers who will subsequently need to organise and run the group themselves.”
LLCSG recently celebrated its 10 anniversary. It is the only group that welcomes people suffering from any type of cancer and its 40 members meet weekly.
