Support walk for Bowel Cancer

SIR — I’m delighted to be supporting Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer’s Walk Together to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by the disease. 

I have lost friends and a family member to bowel cancer so I know how important it is to raise awareness.

Walk Together is a perfect opportunity to bring people together to show support for those undergoing treatment, remember loved ones and help stop people dying from bowel cancer. 

It’s a sponsored walk for people of all ages and abilities through lovely scenery alongside the River Lagan.

Every year more than 1,100 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in Northern Ireland and over 400 people die from the disease. However that should not be the case. It’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early. 

Sign up for the walk which starts in Belvoir Park, Belfast at 11am on Saturday, September 29, or to receive a fundraising pack with everything you need to hold your own memorable walk visit

Yours etc,
