THOSE concerned about terminal illness got onboard when the Marie Curie bus visited Bolton town centre this week.

The double-decker was in Victoria Square to spread the word about the care and support the charity provides for people living with a terminal illness and their families.

The charity estimates that around 1,900 people in Bolton could benefit from palliative care and support each year,but many miss out because of lack of awareness.

For those who missed the bus, the Marie Curie Information & Support Line can be phoned free on 0800 090 2309. Alternatively, you can visit
