We're Backing Lorraine Kelly's 'Change & Check' Campaign

Friday, 2nd August 2019

Pendle Leisure Trust is backing a national Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign launched by TV’s Lorraine Kelly.

The popular television presenter’s ‘Change and Check’ campaign is aimed at encouraging women across the UK to check their breasts, by putting stickers on mirrors in women’s changing rooms in shops and gyms as a reminder for them to check for the symptoms of breast cancer as they are getting changed.

Pendle Leisure Trust will be joining the likes of John Lewis, Warehouse, Monsoon, Oasis and ASDA who are all displaying the stickers in their female changing rooms.

The sticker details the symptoms of breast cancer, such as lumps, rashes and dimpling, reminding women to see a doctor if they become aware of any irregularities.

Mirrors in all of the Trust’s changing facilities now have the artwork on display – Pendle Wavelengths, Nelson, including Inside Spa; Pendle Leisure Centre, Colne; West Craven Sports Centre, Barnoldswick; Seedhill Athletics and Fitness Centre, Nelson and Marsden Park Golf Course, Nelson, as well as the toilets at the Muni Theatre in Colne and the ACE Centre in Nelson.

Pendle Leisure Trust’s Chief Executive, Alison Goode, said: “This is a fantastic campaign and as our company’s ethos boasts, we are committed to health and well-being and therefore feel it is our duty to support this nationwide initiative.”

The campaign has already gained nationwide success with support from members of Parliament and TV and music celebrities who have all had experience of dealing with the dreaded disease first hand.

Look out for the stickers at your local Pendle Leisure Trust facility:
