Have your say

BEING physically active when you’re living with or after cancer can help provide a better quality of life.

That’s the message being promoted by the Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service, which is stopping off in three places in the south east Hampshire area next week.

A team of information and support specialists will be on board to offer free, confidential advice and support.

Michelle Smith, a Macmillan information and support specialist on the unit, said: ‘Macmillan’s Move More report has shown just how important physical activity is to the recovery and long-term health of cancer patients.

‘There is also some evidence to show being active can reduce the risk of some cancers progressing or coming back.’

The visits take place at the following places from 10am to 4pm:

· Tuesday, Commercial Road, Portsmouth.

· Wednesday, Bulbeck Road, Havant.

· Thursday, London Road precinct, Waterlooville.
