…for all your generous walk donations.   We will soon be revealing the total amount raised in sponsorship from the 12th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk, which took place last September.   At the same time we will announce the highest fundraisers and the prizes they have won. 

…is the date of our 13th Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk. Once again the walk will take place at 12:00 in Hyde Park, London. More details will follow shortly, so please keep checking our website www.mouthcancerwalk.org.

With only 4 more sleeps until Christmas Day, we are signing off for 2017. The Mouth Cancer Foundation offices will be closed until Thursday 4th January 2018. You can still access our information via the website and online community forum.  

The charity wishes to say a massive ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone who has sent in their sponsorship monies from the 12th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk, which took place in September. There is still time to forward any last minute donations to the charity at the following address:

Rinaldis Ristorante Italiano in Wakefield has raised a whopping £1010 for the charity during Mouth Cancer Action Month by requesting customers add £1.00 to their restaurant bill. By dining and donating their efforts have gone a good way to raising awareness of all head and neck cancers, for the entire month of November. We are very grateful to the staff and patrons of Rinaldis.

As many of you know the Mouth Cancer Foundation is part of a group called HPV Action. One of the main items on our campaign agenda is to fight for the right for boys, as well as girls, to be vaccinated against the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – one of the leading causes of mouth cancers. 

If you are looking for an idea for Christmas, for someone who may be struggling with eating after surgery, think about buying a copy of Brenda’s Easy to Swallow Cookbook which is easily available from Amazon. 

We were thrilled to receive a donation this week of £160.00 from a Consultant in Restorative Dentistry. Fundraiser, Andrew Elder, completed the Surrey Bacchus Half Marathon on Sunday 10 September. The hilly off road run, traversing the North Downs and Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, took him 2hrs 15mins 48secs.

The NHS Clinical Commissioning Group in Sheffield has been running a pop up shop in Sheffield Markets offering information on all types of cancers including mouth cancers. The hub, which has been open since 30th October aims to raise awareness and encourage take-up of the services available to people affected by cancer.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in their walk sponsorship donations already.   If you are still collecting and want to send money in to support the Mouth Cancer Foundation this year, please send any donations by 31st December 2017 to the charity at the following address: Mouth Cancer Foundation Top Floor, 1 Victoria Parade By 331 Sandycombe Road
