Tackling cancer at your local.

Men are dying of ignorance in Wales and are 70% more likely than women to die from cancer.

This June has been Male Cancer Awareness month and we’ve been getting the message out to Welsh men enjoying a pint in their local SA Brains’ pub with our ‘Tackle it!’ beer mats, encouraging men in Wales who are worried about cancer to get in touch with Tenovus via their Freephone number 0808 808 1010 and to engage with their health services and GP’s when they have any concerns rather that leaving it too late.

Jack & the Giant Peaks

Black Sheep Account Director & co-owner, Jack Bland together with Nadine, Debs, Phil, Josh, RP, Jack, Sharon, Jill & David of Tenovus are joining forces this June to form Team Tenovus. They’re aiming to raise in excess of £2000 for the charity by competing in this year’s National 3 Peaks Challenge, climbing the highest peaks in England (Scafell Pike at 978m), Scotland (Ben Nevis at 1,343m) and Wales (Snowdon at 1,085m) within 24 hrs.

Set up in 1943, Tenovus is Wales’ leading cancer charity that invests around £3.9 million pounds each year in pioneering cancer research, education and patient care.

Tenovus’ aims are simple: to prevent, treat and help find a cure for cancer. In doing that they offer support, advice and treatment for cancer patients and their families. Doing this where it is needed most, right at the heart of the community. They also carry out vital cancer research – in fact Tenovus funded scientists were the first to develop the use of Tamoxifen, now the world’s most successful breast cancer drug.

Tenovus’ Sing for Life Choir are the stars of a BBC One Wales documentary Planet Wales:It’s Good to Sing which will be broadcast on Monday 22nd March at 22:35pm.

The programme details how Tenovus’ Sing for Life choir has come together since January 2010 through their experience of cancer and follows the stories and lives of some of its members.

It also forms part of Tenovus’ research project into the health benefits of singing which is being captured by Cardiff University.
