As part of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, Bowel Cancer UK are hosting free virtual talks to spread awareness of bowel cancer.

Free tickets will be available up until the events take place. Talks are available at the following dates and times, click on a date to make a booking through Eventbrite:

All pre-booked talks will be in the English language and will take place via Zoom. 

Bowel cancer is currently the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second biggest cancer killer. Nearly 43,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, and more than 16,800 people die every year from the disease. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially when caught early. That’s why Bowel Cancer UK is so dedicated to raising awareness through their volunteer-led awareness programme. 

The virtual talk will last around 30-45 minutes and will be delivered by one of their trained volunteers. The talk will cover:

  • Signs and symptoms – learn the most common symptoms of bowel cancer. 
  • Risks – gain an awareness of the risk factors associated with bowel cancer. 
  • Bowel screening – learn about the NHS bowel screening programme and the importance of taking part. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask the volunteer any questions you might have. Many of their volunteers have personal experiences of bowel cancer, and so have a great deal of knowledge and wisdom to share. 

You can also book a bespoke talk for groups of 15 people or more by completing the booking form on their website. Bookings for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month will close on Friday 29 March, so make sure to book yours now. It is a fantastic annual opportunity to educate your business, organisation or community group about the disease.

If you have any questions about their talks, or would like further information before making a booking, please email them at awareness@bowelcanceruk.org.uk.
