Mouth Cancer Foundation Peoples’ Ambassadors, Pat and Colin Jones, recently held their annual golf tournament, The Golf Team Challenge, at Condover Golf Club in Shrewsbury.  Once again, the Clare Memorial Cup was up for grabs.

Throughout November dental health and oral cancer charities, dentists, doctors and pharmacies unite to educate members of general public about a disease that kills more people in the UK than cervical and testicular cancers combined. Mouth Cancer affects over 8300 people in the UK every year and it is estimated that about 60,000 people will be diagnosed over the next decade. 

On the 1st and 2nd November we could be found at the National Dental Nursing Conference in Oxford for the British Association of Dental Nurses Annual Conference.  For full details of their event visit

Today is the official launch of Mouth Cancer Action Month which takes place tonight at the House of Commons. This year we are working closely with the Oral Health Foundation to jointly promote Mouth Cancer Action Month.  Hopefully this will create even greater awareness of all mouth and head and neck cancers. 

The Mouth Cancer Foundation has a brand-new supporter.  StorageMart is an easy to use storage company which houses all the equipment required to run the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk.  The company, which is dedicated to providing easy, clean, friendly service to each and every customer, has donated a storage unit to us.  

Our Colleagues over at Support Group Swallows, founded by Chris Curtis, have launched a new book in Spanish at the recent ESMO19 Congress in Barcelona. The book will help patients and carers facing head and neck cancers.  There is also a new film for carers available on YouTube.   https://youtu.be/oo1DPW7FJME

November is Mouth Cancer Action Month, a time when dental practices across the country try to raise awareness of all head and neck cancers.   We have leaflets and posters available FREE of charge for all dental practices, doctors and hospital waiting rooms, schools and pharmacies that wish to display them.  For free materials please email info@mou

…to all the amazing walkers who turned up to take part in the 14th Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk.  Over 500 of you came, had fun and walked around Hyde Park, London on Saturday 28th September.
