A big THANK YOU to all those who supported our morning of learning, giving, coffee and cake... what a fantastic event!

Thanks to Caroline Milton and Ellen Sharp from Macmillan at Work and Tracey Schneider our Dementia Champion for their insights; helping us to think about managing cancer and dementia in the workplace - important issues of our time.
