Beating bowel cancer together

Bowel cancer awareness talks

April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, a brilliant opportunity to learn more about the disease by joining one of our free pre-booked awareness talks.

Delivered by a volunteer with a personal connection to bowel cancer, you’ll learn about the most common symptoms of bowel cancer, the risk factors associated with the disease and the importance of the NHS bowel screening programme. 

These pre-booked talks are open to anyone who wants to educate themselves about bowel cancer, so you can get involved no matter how small your group, or even as an individual. Free tickets will be available up until the events take place. You can book these tickets on Eventbrite using the links below. 

Talks are available at the following dates and times:

What the talks cover

The talks last up to one hour and are delivered by our dedicated team of trained volunteers, many of whom have a personal connection to bowel cancer.

During the talk you will learn important information about bowel cancer, including:

  • prevalence of bowel cancer – learn that it’s a more common cancer than people think
  • signs and symptoms – learn about the five most common symptoms
  • risk factors – discover what increases your risk
  • bowel cancer screening – learn about the NHS bowel screening programme and the importance of taking part


Here's what's been said about our talks:

  • "The feedback from staff was excellent, and they all enjoyed the talk. Your volunteer was very knowledgeable and presented in an enjoyable way. Their personal story helped to make the presentation very real, and I think it'll inspire people to look out for the symptoms, change their lifestyle, and ensure they undertake the screening test."
  • "It's absolutely fantastic to see awareness of this illness being raised, especially when early detection is possible. My dad sent away his bowel screening kit at the end of last year, which resulted in bowel cancer being detected at a very early stage. It's so important to reinforce completing the screening test – there's absolutely no doubt that this saved my dad's life."
  • "Thank you so much for talking to us. Everyone said it was extremely beneficial and well presented. We're certainly more educated about how important the tests are for early detection and will really encourage people to do them."
