Local government councillors, civic dignitaries and local TV personalities also joined her on the day. operations director Fiona Macrae said: “I am really delighted to be supporting FACT to achieve its goal of raising cancer awareness. FACT is one of many charities we are supporting through the sales of our policies.

“Insurancewith is proud to work with charities such as FACT to make sure our medical screening is unique and ensures all our customers are rated on their individual condition – and their premium is not loaded by a commoditised underwriting criteria.”

FACT chair of trustees Joanne Smith said: “We really appreciate and Fiona’s invaluable support. This event will be another 'first' in cancer awareness for this region it's never been done in such a huge shopping centre before.

“The event brought together services available to cancer patients and their families, as well as addressing education and prevention issues. It also gave those suffering from cancer and their friends and families the opportunity to meet others in similar positions to themselves,” she added.
