Education is key to influencing behaviours to prevent around 86% of all melanoma cases and by increasing our knowledge of how to detect skin cancer in its early stages, we can dramatically improve prognosis and save lives.

“Skcin relies on donations to fund our vital work with a large percentage used to develop, produce and of course deliver these resources that are making a huge impact and are integral to our success. To have this support from Hermes is a welcomed and hugely appreciated gesture of goodwill that will help us reduce our costs and plough any savings back in to the dedicated work we do.”

Nick Houghton, Head of UK and International at Hermes UK, said: “We’re proud to be able to support such a great cause by offering our market leading delivery services to Skcin. We have committed two years of support which will hopefully enable Skcin to continue their valuable work offering advice and support to schools, hospitals and workplaces.”
