Thousands in Portsmouth ‘facing cancer war by 2030’

Have your say

CANCER is a fight that nobody needs to battle alone – that’s the message from a national charity to residents in Portsmouth.

Macmillan Cancer Support is opening its doors to the city’s residents to show all the help cancer suffers can get from the charity and how people can support the cause.

It comes as the organisation revealed worry statistics that by 2030 the number of people in the city living with cancer is expected to hit 10,000.

The charity’s event will take place on Wednesday, June 1 from 10am to 12.30pm at the Macmillan’s Information Pod, in Portsmouth Central Library, in Guildhall Square.

It will coincide with the national Volunteers’ Week and is the perfect opportunity for people to get involved with Macmillan. Visit or call 0808 8080000.
