Trafford Macmillan Wellbeing Centre opens its doors on Friday 29 September for its annual Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.  

Members of the public are invited to come along between 10.30am – 12.30pm to enjoy some refreshments, browse the many stalls and support the centre.

Trafford Macmillan Wellbeing Centre, run by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, provides dedicated community support to Trafford residents living with cancer or other life-limiting illnesses. It is located in the grounds of Trafford General Hospital in Moorside Road, Davyhulme.

The service is open to anyone over the age of 18 years of age who lives in the Trafford area, or is registered with a Trafford GP. A team of experienced staff and volunteers are on hand to provide support which includes counselling for people affected by illness, bereavement counselling and complementary therapies. There are also a range of therapeutic groups to help with relaxation, confidence building, fatigue management, mindfulness meditation, singing and gentle yoga. The centre also has a dedicated drop-in information service.

Margaret Ball , a volunteer at the centre who is helping to organise this year’s coffee morning said:

“We offer a warm, relaxed and confidential environment for people living with or affected by cancer or a life-limiting illness. 

“This event is a great opportunity for people to connect with others and find out about the support that is available, while raising money for a good cause.”
