Birstall BAGs seeks to bring people together to raise funds to support cancer services used by the local community.
The charity also takes every opportunity to raise the profile of cancer particularly with regard to the signs and symptoms recognising that early diagnosis of cancer really can save lives.
Birstall BAGs works with other local charities to provide services that support members of the local community who are living with a diagnosis of cancer.
Together we are stronger!
How we can help you
Bladder Cancer Support
For anyone affected by bladder cancer, the group is an informal opportunity to chat with others who have similar experiences and ask questions of the urology nurse specialists from University Hospitals Leicester.
How you can help us
Drop some coins (or notes!) in one of our collection tins or contact us to make a donation.
Run a marathon, hold a coffee morning, get your legs waxed, hold a fashion show…there’s lots of ways you can raise funds to support us.
When we can organise events again (!), come and have fun with us, help raise funds and meet the BAGS!
Helping people affected by cancer since 1998
Who are we?
Clare Wells was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998. Her determination to encourage all women to be vigilant, to self-examine and access medical care as soon as possible inspired the formation of Birstall BAGs, a local fundraising and social group.
