You might hear the term ‘carer’ and think that’s not you, but if you are supporting someone with cancer there is information and support that is available for you.

From 10:30 – 13:00 there will be:-
- opportunities to meet others who are supporting a loved one

- a chance to be pampered (ear acupuncture, facials, seated acupressure massage and make-up make over by Boots Nr.7 advisors to get the summer glow)
- information stands from support organisations across Sussex
- Refreshments available
From 13:30 – 15:00 there will be:-
