Make a noise for cancer

As an ambassador for Target Ovarian Cancer, and having seen both my parents diagnosed with cancer, I'm passionate about the importance of shouting about the symptoms of this disease.

This month is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and I’m asking people to help us start making noise to spread the word.

You can get involved with Target Ovarian Cancer’s fundraising efforts in loads of ways throughout the month. We’re getting friends and family together to ‘bake some noise’ with coffee mornings and afternoon teas or maybe you’d prefer to ‘dress louder’ and impress friends and colleagues at work or school by wearing something shocking – whether that’s your tackiest tie or stripiest socks.

Whatever you raise, you’ll be helping – £50 could help 200 people to learn about the symptoms of ovarian cancer, £100 could enable 200 GPs to update their knowledge of ovarian cancer. Target Ovarian Cancer is offering free balloons, posters and symptoms information to make your fundraising a success, call 020 7923 5474 or visit
