A new Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service is being developed in Rothesay Library, designed to offer support and information to those affected by the disease.

Service Manager, Deirdre Henderson, has been out in the community meeting organisations, including Bute Community Council, to ask for their input in shaping this new provision as part of the Argyll and Bute Council Libraries service.

Volunteer co-ordinator, Chris Holden, has been recruiting and training volunteers to pilot this non clinical service which will provide emotional support, information and signposting to specialist services for anyone affected by cancer.
