Action Mesothelioma Day on Friday 6th July 2018

Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer caused by asbestos. On Action Mesothelioma Day, people gather in cities across the UK to remember those who have died from this disease, and to campaign for justice for all asbestos victims.

In Manchester, the Action Mesothelioma Day event is run by GMAVSG. We will be meeting at 12.30pm in Albert Square for speeches & a release of doves. There will then be a public meeting at 1pm in the Friends Meeting House on Mount St.

This year, we are asking for donations to be made to GMAVSG, so that we continue to support asbestos victims in the future. If you are able to donate, you could post a cheque made payable to ‘GMAVSG’, or you can donate online here.
