Womens Officer Terri Fanning running a successful Wellbeing stand at Talbot Road to raise awareness of Cervical Screening and Prostate Cancer awareness.

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.

Cervical screening tests are a vital method of preventing cancer through the detection and treatment of abnormalities in the cervix, but new research shows that the number of women using this service has dropped to a 19 year low.

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. Older men, men with a family history of prostate cancer and black men are more at risk

You can find more information around Cervical Screening and the Importance of HPV Vaccines in girls aged 11 -17 here:

On the 11th March 2018 the North West Gas Branch attended the unveiling of a window at the Mechanics Institute, in memory of Alf Morris. Alf Morris was the first minister for the disabled and served as a Member of Parliament for Manchester Wythenshawe from 1964 until 1997. In 1970 Alf Morris successfully introduced the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, which was the first in the world to recognise and give rights to people with disabilities. In 1974 he became the first Minister for the Disabled anywhere in the world. In 1991 he introduced a Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill and he led campaigns on Gulf War Syndrome.
