MEGA LUNGS EXHIBIT TO HELP RAISE CANCER AWARENESS

Two events have been organised, the first at Middlesbrough’s Dundas shopping centre on Thursday, November 10, and Tesco in Grangetown on Friday, November 11, both from 10am-4pm, to coincide with National Lung Cancer Awareness Month.
The main aim of next week’s events is to promote the launch of the drop in chest X-ray which is available at James Cook University Hospital and the One Life Centre on Linthorpe Road. The scheme remains at the pilot stage but makes it easier for people with symptoms of poor lung health to get help and treatment.
To get an appointment members of the public need to have one or more of the following symptoms – a cough lasting more than three weeks, chest pain lasting more than three weeks or coughing up blood.
• For more information visit www.reduce-your-risk.co.uk
They must also be a current smoker, be aged over 50 and not have had a chest X-ray in the last three months.

COMMUNITY GROUP PLANTING TREES TO BOOST CEMETERY

A local community group is stepping in to plant some trees at Thorntree cemetery.
TS1 Tees Valley (Community Group) have kindly offered to work with Council officers and the Friends of Thorntree Cemetery to enhance the cemetery’s appearance. It’s an opportunity to give something back to the community - and get some healthy exercise into the bargain.
The group, who normally organise sporting events for children and families in the TS1 area, are hoping to plant part of the perimeter of the cemetery with some trees they have been given.

• Anyone interested in taking part in these activities should call 01642 817725.
