Join the battle to save lives by supporting Bowel Cancer UK

As we enter the New Year, I’m calling on the Great British public 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. 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 take on a huge challenge like a hike up Kilimanjaro or Everest Base Camp or a cycle through Cambodia.

Why not cheer on our runners at Bowel Cancer UK cheering stations at marathons across the UK in 2019. 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.
