Bowel Cancer Awareness Month has a positive message – saving lives through early detection – as bowel cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.
They are a very small team fighting a big nationwide cancer problem, so the more people getting behind Bowel Cancer Awareness Month with us the better!
At CottonSofts we have been the major sponsor of BCNZ for 5 years now and are proud to be continuing this partnership.
You can raise money for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month in many different ways. Host a shared breakfast/lunch, or morning/afternoon tea at your workplace, coffee group, or local cafe and decorate in purple and green. Have a gold coin donation for casual or dress up in purple and green at your workplace for Friday casual, or even hold a competition among colleagues to raise funds via a fitness activity.

Cottonsoft shares BCNZ’s aim to raise awareness of the disease with frank discussion, education and drive to improve the screening process across the country.
