Sheffield Scanner - The Big Walk 2017

The Big Walk

The Big Walk, supported by Juice, returns for 2017 in aid of the University-wide Sheffield Scanner campaign which is raising funds to provide an MRI-PET facility in Sheffield - the first such facility in Yorkshire. 

We aim to raise £100,000 towards the £2 million target. Participants – staff, alumni, students and friends of the University – will walk as far as they can along a circular 50-mile route in 24 hours, from 7am on Friday 30 June to 7am on Saturday 1 July 2017.

A team from Human Resources is participating in The Big Walk 2017 - see the Blister Pack Just Giving Page to find out more and provide support. 

Further information can be found at The Big Walk 2017

Various other events are taking place to raise money for the campaign including a University quiz night and local events such as bake sales within departments.

See the Sheffield Scanner for further details

Health Management Ltd Guidance - Sun Awareness


Health Management Ltd have released guidance to help us stay safe and healthy in the sun during the summer months.

We all need some sun exposure and indeed some sunshine can be good for us, helping the body to create vitamin D and giving many of us a feeling of general wellbeing as we enjoy outdoors activities. All too often, we overdo our sun exposure, which can lead to a range of problems; unprotected exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays can cause, eye damage, immune system suppression and skin damage. As well as giving you painful sunburn, too much sun can age your skin and increase your risk of getting skin cancer.
