BOWEL Cancer UK is looking for work places and community groups in Glasgow to host a talk about the disease, to raise awareness of Scotland’s second biggest cancer killer.

The free 30 minute talk is delivered by a trained health promotion volunteer, who often has a personal connection to bowel cancer. The programme raises awareness of the disease and good bowel health, highlights the symptoms and risks, and stresses the importance of those who are of screening age to take the bowel cancer screening test when they receive it in the post.

Claire Donaghy, head of Scotland at Bowel Cancer UK, said: “A key part of our work is educating the public about bowel cancer, in particular the importance of early diagnosis, it really does save lives. One of the ways we do this is through our health promotion volunteer programme. If your employees or members of a community group would like to have an awareness talk, don’t delay, get in touch now.”
