This new partnership supports the JCG Foundation’s link with Coppafeel!, the breast cancer awareness charity and its #rethinkcancer campaign. ‘Having watched the BBC documentary ‘Dying to Live’ about Kris, the Founder of Coppafeel! www.coppafeel.org earlier in the year we were inspired to invite Kris to Jersey to talk to local students and young professionals about the rethink cancer campaign’ commented Leanda Guy, JCG Foundation Director. Thursday 25th September - The JCG Foundation will host an event kindly sponsored by Stonehage at the Royal Yacht on Thursday 25th September 6 till 8pm.

To attend this event please rsvp to email@example.com or register on eventbrite to secure your place at what will be an amazing, potentially lifesaving evening! Ian Crosby, Managing Director, Stonehage, said: ‘At Stonehage we place enormous value on preserving the wellbeing of the families we look after. It is vital that we have the ability to anticipate potential problems before they arise and to act to prevent them. This principle applies neatly to an individual’s awareness of their own health, and how important it is to take preventative action, thereby reducing long term risks.’ Saturday 27th September - The JCG Foundation will also be hosting a coffee morning on Saturday 27th September 11 till 1pm at The Royal Yacht. This event is being kindly sponsored by Sure. Everyone is welcome. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend. We are very grateful to Stonehage for taking the lead and supporting this inaugural event.

We are also delighted that during her visit we have secured time for Kris to meet with Jersey’s new Head of Education to investigate how Jersey can benefit from this incredible initiative.’ Building on the successes that Coppafeel! are experiencing in taking these messages into schools they are now asking that: - All student teachers are trained how to teach young people how to look after and manage their health - That all secondary school students have protected time in the school curriculum to learn how to look after and manage their health - That there is a creative approach taken to teaching cancer awareness and healthy behaviours that has impact and tangible benefit. - There is currently a severe lack of cancer awareness in schools. Lack of awareness leads to late presentation to GPs and ultimately to a late diagnosis of the disease. Half of the cancers diagnosed today could be prevented with a change of lifestyle so the Coppafeel! team believe it is time we taught good habits and wish to start our young people on the right road with education and awareness to help lower their risk of cancer and increase their chances of survival.
