Watch Your Back campaign launches

Watch Your Back! is a sun protection resource designed for all gardeners and brought to you by the Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund. Although everyone is vulnerable, it’s men over 50 who are at the highest risk of developing melanoma; the most dangerous form of skin cancer, in areas that are hard to spot, such as the head, neck and back.

Click the link above to find helpful tips, facts, advice and details of skin check events, all designed to show how and why protecting and checking your skin is important and easy to do. The Melanoma Research Fund has teamed up with 8 of the UK’s top gardeners, horticultural organisations (including ourselves) and over 170 major garden centres to encourage everyone to get out and enjoy the garden, but stay safe!
