Hello, and welcome to August’s edition of Word of Mouth.
August is traditionally a time where summer is in full swing and childrenand parents alike are readying themselves for their return to school.There are so many things to consider, not least what your child will eat at school. It’s worth reading our feature on school dinners and our best tips for back to school from page 14 and 15.
The Foundation’s President and Chair, Dr Tony Newton, has also been in the news. Tony scooped a prestigious treble at Durham University, and you can find out more about his achievements on page 5.
I am also delighted to announce the launch of our second annual campaign, Mouth Cancer Action Month. The website has a new look and a new feel, and once again we are encouraging everyone to take part in the campaign and learn about a silent killer. Registrations are now open, and you can find out how to do that on page 8.
To support our campaign, we are taking part in a number of events throughout September and October. Our very own David Arnold and Doychin Sakutov are throwing themselves out of a plane, and closer to the ground we are walking the 10km in Hyde Park to support the Mouth Cancer Foundation, a charity partner of ours. If you’d like to donate to any of these, head to page 6 and find out how you can do it.
Enjoy the issue and we will see you in September!
