Macmillan Cancer and Work training

Date: 6 Feb 2018

On February 6th the Macmillan Cancer and Work training took place at the Pool Innovation Centre, Redruth.  The Training was delivered by an excellent volunteer ‘Graham Burt’  who himself is living with Cancer.  The feedback received was hugely appreciative as the sessions provided excellent information and a superb toolkit, demonstrating just how much more is provided by this outstanding organisation serving our County’s Community; ‘ Macmillan Cancer Support’  If you would like to organise your own company ‘Macmillan Cancer and Work’ sessions please contact: Katy Swetman on workandcancer@macmillan.org.uk.

The slides can be downloaded here.  Additionally; here is a hyper link for the video as well which as you may well remember added real dimension to the day’s proceedings.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG7SuUdG5bI
