LOOK AFTER YOUR SKIN
AND STAY SAFE IN THE SUN
At Skcin we are dedicated to preventing
skin cancer through education...
SKIN CANCER IS THE MOST
COMMON CANCER IN THE UK
Skin cancer kills more people in the UK
than Australia - the UV capital of the world!
RATES OF SKIN CANCER
ARE RISING FASTER THAN
ANY OTHER CANCER
and it is now one of the biggest cancer
killers in the 15-34 age group!
ALMOST ALL SKIN CANCERS
ARE CAUSED BY OVER
EXPOSURE TO UV
That means that almost all skin cancers
are preventable by being sun savvy!
THAT'S WHY SKCIN ARE
DEDICATED TO PROMOTING
Through national educational,
accreditation schemes, campaigns,
partnerships and initiatives...
TO REVERSE THE SOARING
RATES OF SKIN CANCER FOR
OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Knowledge is power. It's time to make
a change. Education is key, a culture
change is required and that's our mission.

Black Tie Events
Since gaining charitable status, Skcin have hosted many charity events, both large and small to raise money to help us achieve our goals. However, we are most renowned for our black tie balls having hosted five events since our launch for over 300 guests. Our famously themed evenings from Viva Las Vegas to Mamma Mia and Boogie Wonderland with red carpet champagne receptions, sumptuous fine dining, fabulous live entertainment during and after dinner have ensured our supporters join us again and again, helping Skcin raise almost £100,000 due to their incredible generosity and support.
The Nottingham Nightwalk
Held in 2013 and 2014 over 400 supporters have joined Skcin in lighting the night in the fight against skin cancer. The Nottingham Nightwalk is a 7 mile Nightwalk - each mile represnting one of the seven people that die from skin cancer in the UK. Starting with a lap of the Nottingham Forest Football Club pitch, walkers dare to bare thier flesh and light themselves up as the Nightwalk begins its dazzling procession through and around the bustling city of Nottingham.
In just 2 events, the Nottingham Nightwalk has raised a massive £53,000 due to the generosity, and support of friends, family, colleagues and corporate supporters.
