Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause sunburn, skin and eye damage and skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the UK. The good news is that this is all mainly preventable, with adequate sun protection.
Sport and outdoor recreational clubs, groups and organisations have a duty of care to provide and maintain a safe environment for participants, officials, coaches, and spectators, and this includes sun protection.
The Melanoma Fund has published a range of resources to help ensure that everyone is made fully aware of how and why to sun protect, to understand the risks and build good habits.
