Food fair’s cancer message
6:00pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
PEOPLE are being invited to an international food fair organised by Swindon Tulip Group. The free fair will be held at Broadgreen Community Centre, in Salisbury Street, from 10am until 2pm on March 30.
There will be taster stalls from more than 10 countries including dishes from Thailand, India, Afghanistan and Gambia. Recipe cards will be available to take away on the day.
The event, which is in support of the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Campaign, aims to help spread the word about ovarian cancer among women.
Organisers hope it will help educate women on the main symptons of ovarian cancer and get people talking about it while tasting the foods of the world.
Each year in the UK, 6,500 women will be told they have ovarian cancer and 12 women die every day in the UK from the disease.
Symptoms include unexplained bloating, feeling full quickly or loss of appetite, pelvic or stomach pain and needing to urinate urgently or more frequently than usual.
If you’ve had any of these symptoms, most days, for three weeks or more, tell your doctor.
