From 11am-3pm in Devonshire Hall there will be a stall dedicated to raising awareness of and fundraising for the prevention of male cancers (prostate, penile and testicular). There will be lots of literature on male cancer including who is as risk, what symptoms to look out for, how to self-examine and what support is available.
Alongside this, there will be a “Bling my Boxers” rail to help raise money for the male cancer charity Orchid.
In the Queen’s Building foyer from 10am-5pm there will have another stall devoted to promoting positive male role models and highlighting the differences amongst men. Come along to send a card or postcard to a man or boy that you love in your life.
There will be a display board of photos celebrating all the different kinds of men and male relationships – men as fathers, brothers, boyfriends, sons, friends, and cousins.
