Men & Cancer Questionnaire

Ty SnowdonNews

The majority of people using our service are female, but this doesn’t tie in with local cancer statistics which show that more men are diagnosed with cancer than women. We’re conducting a survey to find out how we can make sure we provide the services men affected by cancer need and want.

We’re interested in collecting info from men who:

  • have cancer now
  • are recovering from cancer or had cancer more than 5 years ago
  • are caring for someone with cancer
  • have lost a loved one to cancer

Why would I?

Your responses to the questionnaire can help us help more local men affected by cancer. And if that’s not enough, completed questionnaires returned to us by Friday 30 September 2016 will be entered into our free prize draw. Two lucky winners will receive a football (or rugby) shirt of their choice. What are you waiting for?






Click the link below to download the questionnaire. Then either fill it in and email, or print it off, fill it in, and hand it in to us in the Sunflowers building on Aigburth Road

Ty SnowdonNews

We’d like to say a massive thank you to our volunteers and to the great people of Liverpool who helped us raise a whopping £1200 at Liverpool International Music Festival. Every single penny will help us help more local people affected by cancer.

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to our team of volunteers who worked extremely hard at LIMF this weekend, ably organised by Jenny and Mike.

Finally we’d like to thank all of our fabulous volunteers who collected and manned our stall, too many to name individually.
Finally thanks to everyone who donated. Every penny raised will help local people coping with cancer.
