Age UK Enfield is holding a special event as part of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month to raise awareness of the treatable and curable disease.

A full programme of activities being held later this month includes talks, workshops and practical sessions providing reliable information about bowel cancer, including symptoms, risk factors, screening, diagnosis, treatment and living with and beyond bowel cancer.

There will be exercises, a mind workshop, the opportunity to have blood pressure checks and learn about making smoothies, as well as stands with useful information available that can be taken away.
