On Friday July 16th 2010, Mike Peters joined forces with Barclays to host the first ever Barclays Life Support Day in partnership with the bank and The Love Hope Strength Foundation.
This ground breaking coalition between rock and roll and high street commerce aims to impart cancer awareness amongst Barclays customers and members of the general public as they go about their daily business. “Cancer is the world’s biggest killer” says Mike, “and as such people are often afraid to talk about the BIG C or to come forward with a question about a symptom they don’t understand. I hope that by taking cancer awareness out of the hospital and on to the high street via Barclays, we can break down some of the myths about cancer and show people that by putting up a fight there is hope of survival in more and more cases”.
As well as the first ever playing of live music in the bank, during the lunch time hours of 12 and 2 o’clock Mike Peters and the Love Hope Strength team were on hand to talk about cancer related issues along with members of other cancer support groups from the Cardiff area.
