Cancer Research’s ‘Cancer Awareness Roadshow’ comes to Lancashire

Date posted: 8th July 2024

People are being encouraged to visit Cancer Research UK's (CRUK) Cancer Awareness Roadshow as it comes to various towns in Lancashire.

At the roadshows, nurses chat to people about how small health changes can reduce their cancer risk. They also encourage people to know what's normal for their body and give them confidence to go to a GP with any concerns.

Spotting cancer early can make a real difference as treatment is more likely to be successful when it is diagnosed at an early stage.

Over the next few weeks and months, the roadshow will be visiting several towns in Lancashire:


  • Preston, Preston Market 
    • 1 August, 30 August, 26 September
  • Blackpool, opposite Winter Gardens 
    • 27 August, 28 August
  • Blackburn, Ainsworth St
    • 31 July
  • Burnley, town centre
    • 8 October, 9 October

The roadshow is a welcoming place where you can chat to a nurse, have a free health test and get handy leaflets:

  • Talk to one of our team about how to reduce the risk of cancer, spotting cancer early and the importance of screening for certain types of cancer
  • Find out about local and national health services
  • Have a free Smokerlyzer test
  • Find out your Body Mass Index and waist-to-height ratio to check if your weight is within a healthy range
  • Take home a wide range of leaflets and free health information
  • Have an in-depth and confidential chat with one of the CRUK nurses
