Welsh rugby players are encouraging people to visit Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service in Cardiff ahead of their Six Nations decider against England.
Ryan Bevington (Ospreys), Toby Faletau (Dragons) and Tavis Knoyle (Scarlets) took time out from training for the Six Nations decider match at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday 16 March to encourage people to visit Macmillan’s mobile information and support service in Cardiff city centre ahead of the game.
People can visit Macmillan’s mobile service in Cardiff city centre on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 March for free advice and support relating to cancer.
The unit will be open from 9.30am to 4pm on the Friday and from 9.30am until kick-off at 5pm on the Saturday.
No appointment is necessary and anyone is welcome.
Susan Morris, General Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales, said: “We would like to say thank you to the Welsh rugby team for taking the time to show their support for Macmillan and our mobile service’s visit to Cardiff on Friday and Saturday.
“We know that around 18,000 people – a quarter of a capacity crowd at the Millennium Stadium – are given the devastating news that they have cancer every year in Wales.
“Each of these people need more than medical help - they also need practical, emotional and financial support.
“Cancer is the toughest fight many people will ever face. If you have any worries or questions about cancer, whether it’s about yourself, a relative or friend, come and talk to us in Cardiff.”
The mobile service will be travelling across Wales in 2013 stopping off for a further 40 days to offer information and support to people affected by cancer.
If you cannot visit the service when it comes to Cardiff, but have questions about cancer, you can call Macmillan free on 0808 808 00 00 or log on to www.macmillan.org.uk
