Pancreatic Cancer - Doing Your Bit

Join Us
on Nov 1st

Raise Your Voice on 1st November and invite your local MP to our next APPG meeting!

Join us on our Day of Action to kick off Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Pancreatic Cancer needs putting on the Parliamentary agenda and we can’t do it without you! On Thursday 1st November we’re counting on you to speak up by calling your local MP and inviting them to the next meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Pancreatic Cancer being held at 4pm on 19th November.

Getting involved is easy and will only take you a few minutes:

1)      If you’re not sure who your local representative is, find your MP.
2)      Call their constituency office and ask to speak to your MP. If they’re not there, leave them a message.
3)      Explain who you are, what your connection to pancreatic cancer is, if you have one, and invite your MP to attend the APPG meeting.
4)      Encourage all your friends and family to call too – the more voices, the better!

If you want to call but aren’t sure what to say, head to our Day of Action page on the website and have a read of our Quick Tips Guide. And don’t forget to leave a message if your MP isn’t there; you can always call back to check  if they received it.
We’re aiming to reach as many MPs around the country as possible on November 1st, to show them how important this issue is to all of our supporters. We need all hands on deck: it’s time to rally the troops and get calling!

Once you've called, we’d love to hear all about how your calls go and what responses you get or messages you’ve left: you can tell us either by leaving us a message on ourFacebook wall or via Twitter or sending an email to!

Thank you,
Ms. Alex Ford (Chief Executive, Pancreatic Cancer UK) and team
