Spring is here and the Aurora Wellbeing Centre and Heritage Hub has lots of events and new services to offer the people of Bassetlaw.

Aurora is a cancer charity providing support in the local area for people living with cancer or a long-term health condition, but they are also a community hub and welcome the public to go along and see what they have to offer.

Would like to be part of the Aurora Wellbeing family? Volunteers are at the heart of what Aurora does and they would not be able to deliver these services without them. They have a range of fulfilling volunteer roles, new and old.
