12 June - Diabetes Week 

https://www.diabetes.org.uk/Get_involved/Diabetes-Week/

Just about everyone has heard about diabetes and, with 3.5 million people diagnosed in the UK and a further 549,000 who have the condition but don't yet know it, most of us know a friend or family member living with diabetes. And yet it’s still hugely misunderstood, and there are so many myths and misconceptions out there that this year, the theme for 2016 is Setting the record straight.

13 June - Men's Health Week

https://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/mens-health-week-2016-downloads

We all get stressed. The question is: what do you do about it? This is the theme of Men's Health Week 2016. It matters because if we don’t release stress, it can turn into something more serious. This year, one in four of us will develop a mental health problem. That is odds of 3 to 1. Or about the same as France or Germany winning the Euro 2016 football. In other words, it’s likely to happen sooner or later if we let stress build. There are many things we can do to beat stress: exercise, sing, dance, laugh, play or listen to music, paint, write, volunteer, learn something new and lots more. Tell us what you do. Let's talk. Our message to men: talk about how you beat stress, talk about what causes it. Talk to your mates, talk to your family. And if you want to talk to a professional try the Men’s Health Forum’s new Beat Stress service – free text chat with experts trained in beating stress, no names, no hassle.

Summer Lights is a lovely get together to celebrate the people who light up your life. This will be the first ever Summer Lights so we really want to make it a glittering gathering. It’s the perfect time to host an event, afternoon or evening, indoors or out. Make your place shine with lanterns, candles, fairy lights.......as well as some tasty nibbles and drinks.  Our big day is 25 June but you can get together on another day around this time, our free Summer Lights kit is full of inspiration to light the way for your event. Because, by all shining together, we will make a massive difference. Every penny you raise at your Summer lights get together could help give someone affected by cancer the Macmillan support they really need.
