Bowel Cancer Awareness Weekend 2010


Bowel Cancer Awareness Weekend

April 24-25th 2010

To celebrate our first anniversary and Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, Bowel Cancer Isle of Man brought over a giant inflatable colon for members of the public to explore on 24/25 April 2010. The Bowel Cancer Awareness Weekend was launched by the Mayor of Douglas Michael Gelling and raised more than £1000 for Bowel Cancer Isle of Man. The 11 metre walk-through colon was kindly hosted by the Strand Shopping Centre.

Later that week the Mayor held a reception in the Town Hall for Bowel Cancer Isle of Man at which a cheque for £1054.39 was presented.
