Skcin - appoints a new Ambassador for the South West,
Kirsty SanchezSkcin are delighted to welcome Kirsty on-board as an Ambassador of the charity. Losing a loved one to cancer, particularly at such a young age and with a young family must be an incredibly difficult journey. It takes a great deal of passion, dedication and drive to turn that grief into something positive, to want to make a difference and prevent others from suffering the same ordeal. Unbelievably, Kirsty has all this in bucket loads and we couldn’t be more grateful of her support.
As an ambassador of Skcin, Kirsty believes passionately in the charity’s objectives which are to prevent skin cancer through education, to promote early detection and the importance of checking your skin for change. Over 85% of all skin cancer cases are preventable and this is where Skcin feel that the greatest difference can be made to reversing the soaring rates of the UK’s most common and fastest rising cancer.
Kirsty has already been raising awareness this Summer with various initiatives as well as fund raising, using the hugely successful restaurant business Jonray and his brother Peter had so passionately built as a platform to reach the local community.
As well as providing free awareness literature to their workforce, extensive clientele and the wider community, Kirsty a mother of two, is committed to working with young children by promoting the charity’s national Sun Safe Schools accreditation scheme. Sun Safe Schools is a free on-line resource for all UK pre-schools and primary schools, providing extensive free teaching resources for children and policy guidance for schools. The annual accreditation scheme is already teaching in excess of 350,000 children in over 2,500 schools across the UK with the objective of preventing skin cancer through education, evoking the required culture change and making a difference for our future generation and those to come.
