As many of you will know we’re involved in a national GivaPound initiative, which throughout the next 12 months encourages everyone to give at least one pound to the campaign. The aim is to then see how much a £1 donation can turn into.

Time is running out to spend your old one pound coins as they’ve been replaced by the new twelve sided coins and will lose their legal tender status on 15th October 2017.

As many of you know the charity is supporting a brand new fundraising initiative called GivaPound, which has been set up by Mouth Cancer Foundation Trustee Mahendra Patel. This week Cancer Research UK is the latest charity to confirm its support. 

The countdown is on to the start of the charity’s next 10KM Awareness Walk in Hyde Park. At 12 noon on Saturday 30th September 2017 the horn will signal the start of the event.

Have you checked yourself for Mouth Cancer this Month? If you are familiar with our work you will know all about our Bite Back at Mouth Cancer campaign. It is a simple check we developed for the mouth. It is quick and easy and can be done after cleaning your teeth. We recommend doing it at least once a month. All you need is a good light source and clean fingers.

The country is gripped by election fever and voting today to do the right thing is on all of our minds.  So once you’ve voted why not elect to step out and make a difference at the 12th annual Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk. 

The Founder of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, Dr Vinod Joshi, has just returned from the 6th International Academy of Oral Oncology, (IAOO), World Conference on Oral Cancer in Bangalore, India.
