Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust & Zilico are teaming up during National Cervical Cancer Prevention Week to have a pop up event within the Bright Building. The aim of the event is to educate women and men on the importance of cervical screening and raise awareness of the symptoms of possible disease.

Jo’s Trust will hold workshops throughout the day to educate and dispel any myths around screening and cervical cancer. The Zilico team, who are based at MSP, will be in the café area offering information about cervical screening and talking about ZedScan, their device used to detect early changes in the cells of the cervix.

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to raising awareness and supporting people affected by cervical cancer so we will be raising money with a bake sale and donations can be made on the day. A Jo’s Trust representative will be holding 20 minute workshops throughout the day. These are informative, fun and interactive so book a place to attend!

Whis is this important?

Statistics show that 1 out of 4 women don’t attend their screening appointment. Cervical screening prevents cancer and saves lives so we want to encourage more women to attend their smear test. Every year in the UK, around 3,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35 and under. It is important for men and women to be aware of the importance of screening and encourage loved ones to be screened.

The Zilico team will be on hand throughout the day in the Bright Building cafe with cakes and leaflets.
