Raffle with great prizes launched for bowel cancer awareness month

To increase awareness levels during bowel cancer awareness month and raise funds to support the charities key aims (research, training and awareness), BCW are pleased to launch their raffle taking place throughout April 2017.

Not only will participants have the chance to win an amazing prize such as a stay at a top B&B, a meal out, a helicopter ride or a signed Exeter Chiefs rugby ball (amongst many other things), but they will also be made aware of essential information that could save their life. On the back of each ticket, key symptoms of bowel cancer will be printed.   

BCW Chairman, Surgeon Mark Coleman said:

“Good luck in our raffle draw and thank you for your support. Whatever you do, don’t gamble on your life by ignoring these symptoms printed on the back of each ticket, if you have symptoms such as irregular bowel habits, bleeding from the bottom or abdominal pain or bloating, please visit your GP.”
