The eve of a new era

Today, 50 women in the UK will be diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer and 20 will die...

The Eve Appeal is looking for South Yorkshire women willing to be its ambassadors.

The gynaecological cancer research charity is expanding its network of Eve Champions – volunteers who represent the charity locally to raise awareness and build community relationships.

“Just a couple of hours a month could help The Eve Appeal save women’s lives,” says a spokesperson.

“Eve Champions can get involved as much or as little as their lifestyle allows. There are so many ways to help.”
