Bunn Leisure supports Movember campaign

We’re encouraging men to pay more attention to their health by inviting a Macmillan Cancer Support nurse to spend time with their guests during ‘Movember’.

 

The Movember movement sees men around the world sporting moustaches of all shapes and sizes throughout November to raise awareness of men’s health, focusing in particular on prostate and testicular cancer.

 

We know cancer affects people’s lives in many different ways, and we think Movember is a fun way to promote a really important message.

 

We wanted to show our support by giving our guests the chance to find out more information in complete confidence.

 

Over the last four years, our caravan owners have raised more than £30,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, which is a charity very close to our hearts.

 

After the success of our last collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support, where two nurses spent time with our owners and guests during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have invited the team back to offer help and advice throughout Movember.

 

According to Cancer Research UK, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in the UK, and 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.

 

To help people find out more about coping with cancer, the two Macmillan Cancer Support nurses will spend the day here at Bunn Leisure talking to guests and offering free, confidential information and support.

 

Helen Mitchell from the Macmillan Mobile Information and Support Service, will be at the park on Saturday, November 11, between 10.30am and 3pm. 

 

Helen Mitchell, a Macmillan Information and Support Specialist said: “On the date mentioned above, we’re here to answer any questions about cancer.

 

“Whether you want to know what symptoms to look out for, need advice about managing the side effects of your treatment, or want to find local support for carers, come along and see us. We’d be happy to help.”

 

There will be free written material on cancer prevention, stopping smoking, spotting the signs and symptoms of cancer, and how Macmillan can support someone affected by cancer, physically, emotionally and financially.

 

Our guests will be able to speak to Helen on a one-to-one basis, as well as taking away information for free.

 

If you are unable to visit on the day but have questions about cancer, visit www.macmillan.org.uk or call Macmillan free on 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm).
