Local cancer charity Action Cancer is bringing its SuperValu Big Bus mobile unit to Lisburn next month as part of its ongoing tour of Northern Ireland.

The Bus will be hosted by SuperValu Lisburn and will be located at the store on Knockmore Road, on Thursday November 5 and Wednesday 11.

The mobile clinic, whose main sponsor is retail group SuperValu and its independent retailers, was launched in 2006 to help Action Cancer save lives and support people. The 18 metre-long articulated vehicle with expanding side pods, houses cancer prevention and early detection services and staff on the unit also provide information about support services.

Action Cancer Big Bus Co-ordinator Seán Conlon explained why the public should take advantage of the service; “The Big Bus has become a well-known and valuable health resource for men and women throughout Northern Ireland, delivering life-saving services right to their doorstep.”

Anyone interested in making an appointment should telephone Action Cancer in advance on 028 9080 3344.
