Get Your Socks Off Campaign

We are running a Get Your Socks Off Campaign throughout May which is melanoma month and also skin cancer week. This is to raising awareness of melanoma/skin cancer and the service MelanomaMe. provide.

Podiatrists/chiropodists, nail technicians and anyone who works with clients feet or hands can get involved. By registering your business to be part of our campaign you will be promoting melanoma and skin cancer awareness. Subungual and acral lentiginous is a form of melanoma found on the nails and hairless parts of the body (palms of the hands and soles of the feet), which is often overlooked.

A donation of £1 from every persons booking goes to MelanomaMe., to help raise awareness and provide support for patients and carers effected by melanoma/skin cancer.

When you register we will promote you on our social media sites with a bronze, silver and gold certificate being presented to the top three businesses that have provided the highest amount of people being checked through our campaign – your challenge is on!
