salihughesbeauty Supports The Red Lippy Project

Red Lippy Project

Put on your brightest red lipstick for Cervical Screening Awareness Week 9‐15 June 2013

We at SHB love red lipstick more than almost anything. And for the next week, we’ll be wearing it every day in support of The Red Lippy Project.

 

In the UK, cervical cancer is largely preventable thanks to the successful National Cervical Screening Programme and more recently, the HPV vaccination programme in schools. It’s estimated that screening saves up to 5,000 lives every year and yet 20% of eligible women fail to attend screening when invited. Nearly 68% of women aged between 25–29 missed their screening invitation in 2011/12.

 

The Eve Appeal has joined forces with The Red Lippy Project during Cervical Screening Awareness Week, to highlight the importance of attending screening when invited, especially in the younger age groups.

 

What can you do to help? Slick on the brightest red lipstick you can find (we know you have truckloads between you) during the awareness week and spread the word about screening. Be bold, be glamorous, and join in the drive for increased awareness.
