Action Mesothelioma Day, on the first Friday in July, is held to remember those who have died from mesothelioma, and to campaign for justice for asbestos victims.
Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer caused by asbestos.
The Manchester event is run by the Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group (GMAVSG).
With COVID-19 still widespread in some areas of Greater Manchester, and with many venues not fully reopen, our 2021 event will need to be held by Zoom.
Our Zoom event will be at 10.30am on Friday 2nd July 2021.
The event is open to all. To get the link you’ll need to attend on the day, please register in advance at: https://amd21.eventbrite.co.uk
There will be a few short speeches from anti-asbestos campaigners, followed by a minute’s silence in memory of all those who have died.
All donations raised by the event will be split equally between the June Hancock Mesothelioma Research Fund and the National Centre For Mesothelioma Research.
