Jo's Advent Calendar

Ho Ho Jo’s! We’re celebrating the festive season by making a virtual advent calendar. We’re making a list (and checking it twice) of little actions you can do to help Jo’s and others around you, one for each day of December until Christmas Day. 

Each one takes about 5 minutes to do, and almost all of them are completely free. How many can you tick off? 

Check back every day for the next action.

Name something you're thankful for

Tell a friend about our Forum

Almost everyone who gets invited to cervical screening will have a question at some point about it. Our online Forum is a great place to ask these questions, share your experience and hear from others who get it.  

What do you get the person who has everything?

Give them the gift of supporting someone through a cervical cancer diagnosis. Just £16 funds a Helpline call and you could donate in someone else’s name for a memorable Christmas present!

It’s the 20th year of Jo’s, so read what we’ve been up to over the last two decades!
