Join us for #CancerConversations
You may have noticed we’ve been having more conversations than usual on Twitter recently! That’s because we’ve just launched a special new summer campaign designed to stimulate awareness of cancer, especially among a younger and pub-going community.
We’re delighted that our friends at Adnams are supporting the campaign which reaches out to a male audience in its twenties and thirties. Keep your eyes peeled because over the next few weeks, about 280 pubs throughout the Norfolk and Waveney area who serve Adnams beers will receive packs of 125 drip mats of five different designs.

Each contains a hard-hitting question about cancer individually printed one side. Questions include: “Can I die from cancer? Can men really get breast cancer? How will I pay the bills if I have to stop work for treatment?
On the reverse of each beer mat the answer and the opportunity to support Big C through a text donation of £3, less than the cost of a pint.
Posters in the pubs will also highlight the campaign and challenge people to share their experiences and views.
Meanwhile here at Big C HQ, we will be posting questions, facts and running short interviews about people’s views on cancer through twitter @bigctweets #cancerconversations and other social media channels, encouraging more questions and debate.
Our soft-launch of the campaign was at the Norfolk Show last week. And it’s safe to say we encouraged as many people as possible to join the conversation.

Local legend Darren Eadie popped over to say hello and talking about #cancerconversations and our recent Colour 5K event...

Even the animals joined the hashtag for the day.
