Cheque presentation to Cancer Research UK

On 26th July we were delighted to present a cheque for £1750 to Cancer Research UK for the Mole Check Event held earlier in July.

The cheque was presented at Coleridge Medical Centre. We raised £1750 in association with the British Lions for the Mole Check day carried out by Dr. Tony Downs, consultant Dermatologist and Dr. Nigel de Souza, senior GP.

If you have any concerns about your skin or a suspicious mole please get it checked by a medical professional. Look out for a mole which changes progressively in shape, size and/or colour.  

You can check your moles by learning the ABCDE of moles. This covers a range of features that can help you spot if a mole is becoming cancerous.

Dr. Anthony Downs runs a mole check clinic or you can upload a photo using our online form to get an initial evaluation.

Dr. Antony Downs and Dr. Nigel de Souza, GP partner in association with the Lions Club, held a Mole Check event on Saturday 13th July at Coleridge Medical Centre, Ottery St Mary near Exeter in aid of Cancer Research UK.

160 people were seen and over £1600 was raised for Cancer Research UK in one morning. It was a fantastic team effort helping to raise awareness and a significant sum towards the fight against skin cancer.

The team put in a great deal of work to host the event but it was very much worth it, with lots of appreciative patients, and a number of skin cancers identified which are now on course for treatment.

A big thank you to everyone involved and to all those who attended to support this worthwhile event.
