From Bury Market
CAPED crusaders are coming to Bury Market to increase people’s awareness of cancer and promote its early detection.
The team from NHS Bury Community Action to Promote Early Detection of cancer (CAPED) will have a stall on the market every few weeks, starting on Friday 7 September from 10am to 1pm.
The stall will provide people with guides on how to be breast aware, tips on how to complete the bowel screening kit, and information on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle to reduce the risk of developing one of the 12 major cancers.
Claire Rogers, CAPED project lead, said: “We are grateful to Bury Market for allowing us the opportunity to regularly raise awareness over the forthcoming months. Many people are understandably fearful of talking about cancer or simply do not know the early signs but by offering a service like this, we can provide information and support to the people of Bury when they need it, out in the community while doing their shopping!
“With 1 in 3 of us being affected by cancer at some point in our lives, it is so important that we know what is normal for us with our own bodies and that if we do notice any changes that last for three weeks or more, we go and see our GP without delay.”
Each month, the stall will have a special feature on a specific cancer or local campaign. On 7 and 28 September, there will be a focus on male cancers to link in with Blue September as well as the current Bowel cancer campaign.
Future dates for the stall are: 10 and 27 October, 14 and 30 Nov, and 8 December.
