Hive Cancer Support was delighted to take part in the annual Turning Triax Green project the Ballymagowan Allotments.

We gave the pupils a bitesize lesson health lessons using a series of interactive games designed by Jacquie Loughrey our Education and Prevention Officer.

Jacquie and Marianne Flood, our Community Education and Marketing Assistant welcomed children from Holy Child PS, Long Tower PS, St Eugene’s PS, Nazareth House PS and Gaelscoil Éadain Mhóir, who really impressed us with their energy and enthusiasm.

The pupils were really interested in the link between health and the environment and had great fun doing the word searches, matching games and jigsaws.

And they showed off some very impressive knowledge, memory and problem-solving skills.

Hive Cancer Support has its own Education Strategy and links up with schools and youth groups to deliver our Reduce Your Risk workshops.
