The Melanoma Fund is a small but highly proactive charity, raising awareness of melanoma and other forms of skin cancer in Kent and Sussex and across the UK.
Our focus is on running three national awareness campaigns that target high-risk sectors of the community including children, gardeners, and golfers.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and melanoma is 5th and fastest-rising with 400 new cases each day, but it is largely preventable and our mission is to ensure more people understand the risks and what to look out for.
Our campaigns include:
The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code, designed to help coaches improve their provision of sun protection, encouraging primary aged children to develop good habits that will last a lifetime.
Watch Your Back! - a campaign aimed at gardeners and now promoted in over 360 UK garden centres offering advice on sun protection, early detection, and prevention. We run free local skin check clinics and skin health events during summer working closely with local hospitals.
Slip! Slap! Swing! is for all in golf and our aim is to lower the incidence of skin cancer in this sport. With the help of 9 leading golf organisations across the UK we aim to reach all 4 million golfers with our messages.
We rely 100% on donations and appreciate every ticket sold.
