Raising awareness of gynaecological cancers with Lady Garden Foundation
To honour Women’s History Month, we’ve teamed up with Lady Garden Foundation to raise awareness and funds for gynaecological cancers. We’ve collaborated on a new self-care box, with 50% of profits going to gynaecological cancer research
In the UK alone, 21 women die of a gynaecological cancer every day, and 57 women are diagnosed – but awareness of the symptoms remains low, with many people embarrassed to talk about these issues openly. Lady Garden is on a mission to change that.
Cofounder and Soho House member Jenny Halpern Prince shares how she curated our new self-care box, the things we can do to get involved, and why we must all join the conversation on women's health.
What can our members do to get involved and support?
‘First and foremost, talk to your friends, family, colleagues and more about any gynae issues you may be facing, or have concerns about. The topic of gynae health is often considered taboo or embarrassing, [but] it should be no different to talking about any other body part. Opening up the conversation leads to earlier diagnoses because you feel encouraged to visit your GP rather than avoiding the potential problem.
‘In terms of the charity, follow us on Insta or sign up to our newsletter so we can keep you up-to-date with what we are doing. We always have various events or activities happening that you can support us with.’
Why have you curated this mix of products together in the Soho Box?
‘We are so chuffed to have a collaboration with Soho House, and wanted to give the members a surprising and exciting mix of items in the box. There is something in there for whatever mood you are in, whatever stage of your cycle you may be at, and for how playful you may be feeling. Each of the brands are working hard within their arena to empower women and this is why we admire them all so much.’
