“Everything went very smoothly. We had a real giggle with it - people were queuing up to go in - and some serious questions were answered by the health professionals who volunteered to help us. But really bowel cancer has never been so much fun.”
The inflatable colon provided an eye-catching ice breaker for the Endoscopy Workshops at the Cheltenham Science Festival 2010. Europacolon were efficient and friendly through from initial enquiries to delivery and set-up on the day.
(europacolon was asked by Dr John Anderson, Clinical Lead for Endoscopy Training and Dr Catherine Kendall, Principal Clinical Scientist, Biophotonics Research Group to exhibit at the Cheltenham Science Festival)
We ordered The Inflatable Colon for our Mayors Carnival in Barnsley Town Center and it was brilliant with around 500 people going through it from all age groups. The Deputy Mayoress walked many people through the colon as she had a personal interest having participated in the Bowel Cancer Screening Programme herself and having had polyps detected. Everything ran smoothly and Adrian your logistics manager was brilliant.
The inflatable colon held centre stage at the bowel cancer awareness event held at Mile End Hospital. From beginning to end the service provided by Digestive Cancers Consultancy was not less than excellent.
Visitors were eager to see the offerings inside, and this stimulated many interesting conversations that ensued.
We hope to avail the colon again to promote this very important cause! Many thanks Digestive Cancers Consultancy, Julia and Nick!
The giant INFLATABLE COLON at the Southampton General Hospital open day was a real success. Over 300 inquisitive people had the opportunity to talk to a colorectal surgeon and patient about bowel screening and the research taking place in the city whilst visually learning about the bowel. It was a really positive activity and one that we would definitely recommend for other health events because it gets people talking about a difficult but important subject. Thank you to Julia Kennedy for all her support and enthusiasm.
The inflatable bowel was very well received by the public. It brings a real novelty value to a subject that many people still find difficult or distasteful to talk about. Lots of people certainly raised their eyebrows and they were able to take on board information about the bowel cancer screening programme and other bowel conditions. We encourage anyone who has any form of symptoms that are new and persistent, to consult their GP.
Health and Wellbeing event at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday 23rd October 2010
