We know that 2020 was an incredibly difficult year for everyone, but especially for all those whose lives have been affected by cancer. In addition, we estimate that the number of people not sent for cancer tests since the start of the pandemic is now nearly 29,000 and has risen by almost 1,500 since last month.
It was also a tough year for Tenovus Cancer Care. Our income is drastically down from this time last year, and virtually all of our shops are closed due to the pandemic. But did you know that our Support Line (0808 808 1010) remains open all year round though? Just £20 raised or donated means that someone can still talk to an experienced nurse about their concerns surrounding cancer as and when they need to.
And that’s where you come in! Let’s defy the odds and do something positive by saying ‘New Year, New Start’! Begin 2021 by improving your health and wellbeing and helping those affected by cancer at the same time.
Make 2021 better than 2020
Whether you want to get fit, lose weight or acquire a new skill at the start of the New Year, why not combine it with raising money for our vital services?
Knowing you’ll be helping others is a great way to motivate yourself to keep going. Whether you want to learn a musical instrument or a new language, or you want to able to run 10k or lift 50kg, your efforts will be helping others at the same time and we’ll be there to support you in reaching your personal and fundraising goals.
Live better, feel better
We know that having an unhealthy lifestyle can lead to cancer. But there are so many changes we can make to our own habits that help us reduce the risks. Why not do this for January or, better still, for all of 2021?
To make your choice easier, this year we are asking people to give up drinking alcohol. There are so many reasons to do so, sign-up for a pack today to get started and stay motivated!
Make this the year you did it
We all hope things will start to get back to normal in 2021, and to that end we are planning to have people taking part in events like marathons and other runs or challenges later on in the year. Would you like to join us?
