Munster And The Irish Cancer Society Promote SunSmart Campaign
11th July 2019 By The Editor
Munster Rugby have teamed up with Nominated Charity Partner the Irish Cancer Society to urge the public to be SunSmart when outdoors this summer.
All participants at this year’s Bank of Ireland Munster Rugby summer camps will be provided with free sunscreen as part of their goody bag.
The Irish Cancer Society said it is important to follow the Sunsmart Code during the summer months, even on cloudy days. It says this is even more important for people playing sports, attending camps or taking part in outdoor leisure activities.
The Code advises people to seek shade, use sunscreen, wear a hat and sunglasses and cover up with a long sleeve or collar. The Society warned that repeated sunburn can lead to an increased risk of skin cancer in later life
The partnership is supported by La Roche Posay.

☀️ We visited @Munsterrugby‘s kids summer camp to see the excellent job they’re doing promoting being #SunSmart ☀️ It’s vital that sportspeople of all ages wear sunscreen & especially important that children’s skin is protected, as they’re even more sensitive to harmful UV rays🌤️ pic.twitter.com/g2SOZYFnVT
