More than 2,300 a year die from skin cancer in the UK, with around 15,400 new cases identified nationwide every 12 months.

Albion in the Community is working with NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commission Group to raise awareness of the symptoms of skin cancer and promote sun safety.

AITC’s Speak Up Against Cancer will be at the city’s Take Part Festival on Saturday.

The charity’s football coaches will be running free football activities at The Level.

AITC’s Speak Up Against Cancer team will be joined at Take Part by a number of local doctors and nurses.
