THE team at Kerry Cancer Support Group are piloting a sunscreen dispenser in partnership with the Irish Cancer Society, Healthy Ireland and The National Cancer Control Programme.

They are among groups including The Dublin Airport Authority, An Post and Water Safety Ireland to make sunscreen freely available to the public at their centre in Maine St Tralee.

The custom-made board which will be outside the centre includes a dispenser with SPF 30 sunscreen, a mirror to aid application, information on the UV index, the SunSmart code and a UV dial to raise awareness and remind people to protect their skin.

Breda Dyland from Kerry Cancer Support Group said that they are delighted to get behind the initiative and hope that people make use of the board.

“We see it as a very natural progression of our service because we already provide SunSmart awareness presentations to schools and groups in the region,” she said.
