These include Red Cross, Macmillan, British Heart Foundation, Health and Wellbeing, Dementia, Motor Neurone Disease, Lung Cancer Nurse, Organ Donation, and Bereavement support. The Norwich Writer’s Café has also donated poetry which will be displayed around the café.
Big C will be there to help Complete Advance Care Plans and Norfolk Citizens Advice will be able to help on legal matters or concerns. Free tea, coffee or hot chocolate will be provided and there will also be a 3pm relaxation session each day for everyone to attend in the Benjamin Gooch Lecture Theatre.
