Dry July funds enable Leukaemia Foundation NZ to develop multi-lingual information booklets

Thanks to funds raised by participants of Dry July 2019, the Leukaemia Foundation NZ have been able to update and translate their blood cancer information booklets. 

With isolation proving to be a significant challenge throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the updated and multilingual information booklets allow for an accessible, equitable resource for different groups affected by blood cancer across New Zealand. 

You can access the booklets here:

Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand are using Dry July funds to roll out Prost-FIT classes across Aotearoa

Thanks to the help of Dry July participants and donors, Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand is planning to implement Prost-FIT exercise classes that are specifically designed for men with prostate cancer across New Zealand! 

Involving both physical and cognitive elements, Prost-FIT is an exercise programme which aims to enhance the overall wellbeing of men affected by prostate cancer, helping them to become fitter and stronger throughout their cancer journey. 💪😊

One of the projects your Dry July fundraising contributes to are Look Good Feel Better NZ's Online Men's Classes

In July, Look Good Feel Better relaunched its men’s program with an exciting line up of inspirational guest speakers that the participants can chat with.

This may be someone from the professional sporting arena, a respected Kiwi, someone with an inspiring story to share, or an expert who can give more advice to help participants feel more like themselves again. 

The first class was kicked off with Simon Gault, the renowned TV chef & restaurateur. He shared how he has changed his diet after a health scare with diabetes. The class was fun, relaxed, and with plenty of questions! 

The Look Good Feel Better trained facilitator also shares advice and practical tips to care for skin, hair, and body. These classes are run online via Zoom, to enable any man diagnosed with cancer, at any stage, join from anywhere in New Zealand. 

Dry July fundraising helps Look Good Feel Better NZ train workshop facilitators like Josy.

Look Good Feel Better NZ has around 30 trained class facilitators, based all over New Zealand.

Dry July funds have enabled some of its community class facilitators to be trained to become engaging presenters on Zoom for the online classes.

One of these facilitators is Josy Jansonius, who has been a part of the charity for many years. She is a professional beauty therapist and makeup artist, but recently turned sheep and beef farmer.

She continues to support the charity by being one of its online class facilitators, based out of her farm in Te Aroha, “I am thrilled to be a Look Good Feel Better online facilitator and love being able to connect virtually with our community."

With the help of Dry July fundraising, Bowel Cancer New Zealand have begun planning a new wellbeing programe!

Bowel Cancer New Zealand are proud to announce that thanks to the help of your fundraising, they can now employ a specialist bowel cancer nurse to provide information and support to those affected by bowel cancer and as part of this initiative, they will be launching a wellbeing programme.

This programme will help those undergoing bowel cancer treatment by facilitating access for them to counselling, physio, remedial massage, accommodation, and travel support.

Rebekah, the General Manager and Mary, the Communications Manager of BCNZ, have started the recruitment process for the nurse support role. The wellbeing programme is currently being scoped out and will be ready to be launched before the end of 2020 - how exciting!
