Answer Cancer were recently invited to hold a stall, which was a great success, at the Rochdale Women’s Welfare Association on Wednesday 9th March at Wardleworth Community Centre, Rochdale. This event was held to mark International Women’s Day on the previous day.
With approximately 130 women in attendance, the Answer Cancer stall managed to reach out to many of those attending, sharing information on the three screening programmes and highlighting some of the signs and symptoms to look out for. Our translated leaflets in Urdu and Bengali were especially useful and handed out to those in attendance who required them.
It was also a great opportunity to network with some of the other stall holders. Many interesting conversations were had and we signed up a very enthusiastic member from the local community onto our Answer Cancer Champions scheme!
