Bowel Cancer Isle of Man closes down

Mon, 11 Dec 2023

The charity Bowel Cancer Isle of Man has regretfully announced its closure.

Established in 2009, Bowel Cancer Isle of Man has played a crucial role in advocating for bowel cancer screening, funding necessary equipment and facilities at Noble’s Hospital, and taking part in community events with the memorable Giant Walk Through Colon. The charity has also been actively involved in regular support group meetings, and has provided information and presentations to local groups and businesses.

The decision to close Bowel Cancer Isle of Man is the result of significant changes in the availability of information and support online. With the proliferation of online resources, individuals affected by bowel cancer now have access to a wealth of information and guidance that was previously limited. Recognising this shift, the charity determined that their services were no longer necessary in the current landscape.

In recent years, Bowel Cancer Isle of Man has faced challenges in recruiting new trustees and officials to assist with the increasing regulatory and administrative demands placed on charitable organisations. These tasks require dedicated individuals with specific expertise, and unfortunately, the charity was unable to secure the necessary personnel to continue its operations.

Despite the closure, Bowel Cancer Isle of Man is proud of the significant contributions it has made to the fight against bowel cancer on the Isle of Man. The charity's initiatives have positively impacted the lives of many patients and their families, and its legacy will be remembered for years to come.

Bowel Cancer Isle of Man would like to express its deepest appreciation to all the donors, volunteers, partners, and community members who have supported the charity's mission throughout its existence.
