THERE'S still time to sign up for Bowel Cancer UK’s Walk Together this September to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by the disease.

The sponsored walk could be a special route in your area.

The charity says it’s a perfect opportunity to bring people affected by bowel cancer together to show support for those undergoing treatment, remember loved ones and raise funds to help stop people dying from the disease.

Alternatively, people can take part in a sponsored 'virtual' walk where they can complete five miles in their own time, anytime, during the month of September.

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK. Every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with the disease – that’s almost 42,000 people every year.
