Just one in five UK women can name bloating as a symptom of ovarian cancer. By getting your colleagues involved in fundraising, you'll also be raising vital awareness and helping to spread the word so that more women can recognise the symptoms and are diagnosed earlier.
Whether one of these fundraising ideas takes your fancy or you're not quite sure what to do, we're here to help. Request the materials you need, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org / 020 7923 5474.
