Can you support Bowel Cancer UK?

Date published: 20 December 2018


As we enter the New Year, I’m calling on Oldhamers to save lives in 2019 by supporting Bowel Cancer UK, the UK’s leading bowel cancer charity.

I’m a patron of this wonderful charity because my mum died from bowel cancer when she was just 54 years old.

More than 16,000 people die from the disease in the UK every year, making it the second biggest cancer killer, but with your help we can change that. 

Make it your New Year’s resolution to support Bowel Cancer UK.

Take on a challenge this year - April's ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon. 

You could get active and join our Step up for 30 campaign in June by doing 30 minutes of physical activity every day for 30 days.

Or come and cheer on our runners at our Bowel Cancer UK cheering stations.

It’s because of people like you we can continue to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer.
