Visit from the Robin Cancer Trust
Toby started his talk by explaining the reasons behind why the charity was started, this was due to the death of Toby’s brother Robin who died of testicular cancer aged 24, he then went onto start ‘talking bollocks’ as Toby would say, asking what the young people knew about cancer and some of the facts around Testicular and Ovarian cancer. Toby then played a quick video around how girls can check for symptoms of ovarian cancer and what to look out for, the young people responded really well, they were very engaged and took lots of pictures,
Zach was then given the embarrassing task of showing how to check your balls using a set of prosthetic testicles this gave everyone a good laugh but also worked really well to get the message across.
All in all It was a great visit and we are looking forward to seeing them again on Friday 13th April over at our Cornard session.
On Tuesday 10th April we were visited in Hadleigh by Toby from the Robin Cancer Trust. The aim of the Robin Cancer Trust is to raise awareness around germ cell cancer (testicular and ovarian cancer) and to teach people how to correctly check for symptoms so that cancer can be found at an earlier stage so the chances of survival are higher.
On Thursday 15th of February we held our fourth Horizons session at Ipswich East Fire Station just off the A14 on Ransomes Euro Park, we took 7 young people in total from both Hadleigh and Cornard.
This has really kicked Horizons 2018 off to a great start. The plan is to run Horizons sessions on the third Thursday of every month and we are in talks with a variety of local businesses and industries. Get in touch with Zach email@example.com if you would like your business to be part of this project.
Today Kayleigh joined our youth work team and we're all looking forward to working with her.
The Porch Project is working with DanceEast on a Hadleigh Town Dance Project. Starting Tuesday 20th at our drop-in session and running for 6 weeks.
