North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership continues to campaign for Sun Awareness, following our previous accredited support of the Melanoma Fund.
The campaign was designed to tackle melanoma, one of the UK’s most common cancers in young people, by helping to develop and support sun protection practices for all those who work outdoors with children.
Just a few serious sunburns can increase everyone’s risk of melanoma by 80%. With 86% of melanomas attributed to excessive sun exposure, and levels of melanoma rising in the UK, sun protection habits need to change.
To encourage this change, North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership has a Sun Protection Pledge, which is promoted and endorsed by our team at all our outdoor events, as well as through our direct support of PE and Sport in Schools.
