The group is open to patients, carers, family members, medical professionals and others experts working with sufferers and aims to give members an increased quality of life.

Mesothelioma UK is a national specialist resource centre, specifically for the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma. The charity is dedicated to providing specialist mesothelioma information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.

Phoebe Osborne, from Ashtons' Asbestos Disease team, said: "I'm really proud of all that we are working towards in supporting Mesothelioma UK, their amazing nurses and we are grateful to them in return for supporting our campaign in East Anglia - it is a real privilege to work with the team there."
