Pink Panthers go out to raise cancer awareness

Have your say

This is Male Cancer Awareness month and the Pink Panthers will be busy highlighting the importance of being ‘Cancer Aware’.

The group will be displaying an awareness banner on Free Derry Corner from tomorrow (Monday) and they will be erecting other banners throughout the city.

The Pink Panthers will also be delivering Cancer Awareness sessions to anyone who wishes to avail of them.

These sessions are suitable for anyone over the age of 14 and are free of charge. The sessions are an excellent way of getting the importance of cancer awareness out into public.

Pink Panthers, in partnership with Action Cancer, will be holding men’s pop-up clinics throughout the city. These clinics will provide men with a chance to drop in and get a ‘health M.O.T.’ and also get information on cancer awareness.

Clinic dates are as follows:

Tuesday November 12 11am-7pm St Columb’s Park House, 4 Limavady Road, Derry: Thursday November 14 11am-7pm 1 Old School Lane, Derry: Tuesday November 19, 11am-7pm Gasyard Centre, 128 Lecky Road, Derry: Thursday November 21, Inchview, 23 Inchview, Hazelbank, Derry.

To round up a busy month the Pink Panthers will be celebrating with a ‘Magic Mike’ themed night.

This will be a social night again to show awareness of male cancers and is being held in Pitcher’s Restaurant on Saturday November 29 from 8pm. Tickets cost £10.
