Croydon’s Get to Know Cancer information and advice pop-up shop at the Centrale shopping centre is open for just one more week.
The campaign is a trial scheme, to offer the public the chance to ask questions about cancer and discuss concerns they might not feel comfortable talking about with family, friends or even their GP. It runs until November 4.
The project has been run in partnership between Croydon Council and the London Health Improvement Board.
Nurses from Mayday, Royal Marsden Hospital and charities Cancer Research UK and Macmillan will continue to be available in the shop over the next week to answer people’s questions and provide information.
According to Croydon Council, the shop’s experts have been visited by around 50 people each day during the first month of its operation. Before the shop closes, there are plans for a number of events during next week’s half-term, including a performance by Brit School pupils on October 31 and Crystal Palace footballers showing off their skills on November 2.
