Fundraise

GCAM is a perfect time to fundraise for Jo’s! There are lots of ways to support our work by getting your school, workplace, local salon and family involved. Why not have a dress down day at work, a doughnut sale at school, a quiz night or take Virtual Steps for Jo's with friends? Your fundraising can make a real difference. Just £21 can fund a call to our free helpline, supporting a caller in a time of need.

If you would like more fundraising ideas or to share how you are getting on send us an email at [email protected].

More information 

There are five gynaecological cancers; cervical, ovarian, vaginal, vulval and womb. To find out more about the gynaecological cancers you can visit the following websites or see NHS Choices:

We’re supporting The Eve Appeal’s campaign to get cancer on the curriculum which calls for a cancer education programme, to address taboos and teach girls and boys enhanced body knowledge.

We want all school children to learn about the how cervical cancer can be prevented so have created lesson plans with Teenage Cancer Trust on HPV, the HPV vaccine and cervical cancer. You can download the lesson plans for year 8 and 10 students here >
