The Macmillan Cancer Information Centre is marking its 10 year anniversary.

The centre based in Noble's Hospital has been serving as a 'one stop shop' for information on cancer for a decade.

A team of volunteers - which includes cancer survivors, social workers, nurses and people with of experience in counselling - all lend a hand to running the centre.

It offers information for patients suffering from the disease and provides 'LookAhead' - which gives support for those experiencing hair loss and other side effects of cancer.

Last year the team supported more than 600 people.
