Action Mesothelioma Day, Friday the 5th of July from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm

Please join us for our special Action Mesothelioma Day event at Carrs Lane Church in Birmingham, to raise awareness about mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases and raise money for a really deserving cause. However, we always invite anyone with an asbestos related disease, as well as carers and those who have lost loved ones to these diseases. to come along and take part. There will be something for you too!

Raising money to tackle the scourge of mesothelioma

On Action Mesothelioma Day it’s long been a tradition for us to raise money for a different charity, which specialises in supporting people with mesothelioma, and not for ourselves.

This year our chosen charity is Mesothelioma UK, because their funding was especially badly hit by the pandemic. Any money raised on the Day will go to them. Our keynote speaker will be one of their trustees, Alida Coates (pictured).

Managing asbestos in schools and public buildings

Antony Etherington, the Asbestos Group Manager for Birmingham City Laboratories , is coming to talk about the management of asbestos in schools and other public buildings.

Our annual report – including ‘Meet our new staff member’

You will also get to meet our new follow-up worker, Jilly Bermingham. I will give you a brief report about our work at Asbestos support Central England.

The annual act of remembrance

And we will begin our traditional Act of Remembrance for everyone who has died from an asbestos related disease. This year we will be releasing a flock of doves!

How to get there

Carrs Lane Church is almost opposite Moor Street Station and about five minutes’ walk (downhill) from New Street Station. It is also five minutes’ walk (uphill) from the Moor Street Car Park. But if you take the lift to level 8 and walk across the pedestrian footbridge to Selfridges you can avoid going uphill by walking through the Bull Ring Shopping Centre.
