Bowel Cancer UK partners with Liverpool John Moores University
Monday, February 06, 2012
Calling all students to join our innovative health awareness
student volunteer programme.
Bowel Cancer UK is launching a student volunteer programme
with Liverpool John Moores University.
The pilot will see the charity working with staff in Sport,
Exercise and Health to recruit student volunteers to help increase
awareness of bowel cancer around Liverpool.
Students who participate will be trained by members of the
health promotion team from Bowel Cancer UK, and will then share
their knowledge of bowel cancer with the public, by staffing
information stands at various health shows and community
It is hoped that the pilot will enable Bowel Cancer UK to
increase its reach in Liverpool in 2012 and lead to an ongoing
partnership between Bowel Cancer UK and LJMU.
Commenting on the venture, Sarah Porch, Director of Services for
Bowel Cancer UK said, "We are delighted to partner with John Moores
University on this innovative programme. Awareness of bowel cancer
is still far too low, so it will be fantastic to have more people
helping us to raise awareness, which is what saves lives."
Warren Gregson from Liverpool John Moores said, "This is an
exciting project for both us and Bowel Cancer UK. It offers
students an insight into how the practical application and sharing
of knowledge can make a real difference to people's lives."
