This year, we want everyone to Get Lippy to raise much-needed funds for our dedicated programmes, including Ask Eve – a specialist nurse service that provides information to all who are concerned about the signs, symptoms and risk factors associated with gynae cancers.
In the current coronavirus climate, people are not seeking help out fear of ‘being in the way’ or adding pressure to the NHS. Eve’s recent research found that 30% of people would put off any unusual and persistent bloating investigated, a key sign of ovarian cancer. This makes our Ask Eve service all the more important; it is offering a lifeline at an incredibly difficult time.
This is why we need your support now more than ever to help ensure we can be there for the people who need to know whether they or their friend or family members symptoms need investigating, for everyone worried about cancellations to their cervical screening, and for all the families worried about how cancer care is changing.
Buy a Lip Product
We partner with some of the biggest names in beauty and retail – including Vaseline, Eos and Carmex – who donate a percentage of their May sales to the cause.
You can join us and Get Lippy this May by buying a participating lip care product from Tesco, whilst doing your regular shop (in store or online).

Get Lippy Run – 17th May 2020
Don your boldest Lippy or streak it across your cheeks and run, walk or jog 5k in your local park, down the street or around the garden for Eve!
Register to join our virtual run here – we ask for a £5 registration fee and that you try and raise £25 in sponsorship, which could cover the cost of an hour’s call with our gynae nurse specialist through Ask Eve. You can do it!
Dress Up Fridays
Putting on some Lippy and clothes that make you feel good is a great way to boost your week on a Dress Up Friday. Pick a Friday, or every Friday in May to take part, set up a JustGiving page encouraging as many of your friends, family and colleagues to do the same and to give a donation of £2 – £5, then use Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook or HouseParty to compare outfits, and Get Lippy and Loud about gynae health!
If you have any questions, send us over an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 020 7605 0100.
