Blue Ribbon Appeal

The Blue Ribbon Mouth Cancer

The Blue Ribbon Appeal continues to play a key role in directly engaging people with the issues surrounding mouth cancer, whether it’s talking about the risk factors involved, the early warning signs or the benefits of early detection, all can make a difference in improving education and ultimately saving lives.

Here’s how you can get involved….


This year we are urging everybody to wear a blue ribbon badge with pride. More than 250,000 of you have worn one in the last three years.

Each blue ribbon badge costs just £1, but that money goes a long way in helping us to achieve our charitable goals.

 badgesBut don’t just buy one for you… get your family, friends and colleagues to pitch in too!  We want to see as many of you as possible wearing them as a sign of support.

To get your blue ribbon badge, click here to purchase one or many, from our online shop.

And don’t forget to wear them throughout the whole year!



Last year, we sent out more than 800 Blue Ribbon Appeal Kits to teams all around the UK so they could promote mouth cancer awareness to their patients, their customers, or their staff.

The Blue Ribbon Appeal Kit contains 25 badges, a collection box, a mouth cancer poster for your waiting room and details on how to donate the money raised.

Display the box on your reception desk, checkout counter, or in your staff waiting room and use it to engage patients, customers and staff, and talk to them about mouth cancer.

You can collect your Blue Ribbon Appeal Kit by clicking here.

Blue Ribbon Appeal Kit start from a £25 donation. You can select your size of box to meet your needs.

…And by asking for just £1 per badge, it also means that the box would not have cost you anything, so there’s no excuse not to get involved.

And when you have run out of badges, you can simply request more! Remember, mouth cancer deserves our attention all year round. So please show your support by getting involved in the Blue Ribbon Appeal not only through November’s Mouth Cancer Action but by wearing the badges and having them on your reception desk for patients throughout 12 months of the year.

NOTICE: Unfortunately, we can only distribute Blue Ribbon Appeal Badges and Kits to the UK and Ireland
