WORLD Cancer Research Fund's (WCRF) Go Bananas on Fruity Friday campaign takes place on May 15 and we are urging local schools and companies to have a dress down day, wear yellow for Fruity Friday and make a donation to WCRF.
The aim of Fruity Friday is to get across the message about the importance of a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables in a fun way, at the same time as raising valuable funds for our cancer prevention research and education programmes.
As well as fun events, such as holding fruit breakfasts or putting on fruity competitions, one way to celebrate Fruity Friday is to host your own 'Beat the Banana!' 5km fun run.
To find out more about how to host a Beat the Banana! run or how to organise a Go bananas on Fruity Friday event, visit www.fruityfriday.org or call 020 7343 4205 for more information.
