Through a club fundraising night last autumn money was raised to cover the cost of the BIG BUS and we would encourage as many people as possible to avail of this opportunity and make an appointment but please note that all appointments must be received 3 working days (by 17 April) in advance of the BIG BUS visit and if there is limited or no appointments received Action Cancer reserve the right not to deploy staff for a particular service.
