Team Meso Social Distancing DISTANCE Challenge: 5,000 km in 5 weeks!

To help our team spirit and to encourage fitness and activity during these weeks of confinement, the whole team, operational staff, trustees and our nurses, pledged to walk or run 5000 kilometres 5 weeks in March and April, 2020.

During their allowed, once daily exercise or on treadmills at home team members recorded their walk or run, logged it and added it to the activity tracker on this page.

Thank you for all your support and donations, we smashed our 5,000km in 5 weeks challenge and raised an amazing total of £7,170. Thank you all so much for your support, particularly to the South West Asbestos Support Group (SWASAG) for a huge donation of £5k. 

You can still donate through the Just Giving fundraiser or on Facebook, directly through the fundraiser.

Keep well and safe everyone. Were here for you.


Mesothelioma UK is working flat out to enable our specialist nurses to support their local NHS hospitals and also through whatever lies ahead, to sustain our Mesothelioma community, provide support, contact and information.

We totally acknowledge the added fear and anxiety the COVID pandemic creates for people living with mesothelioma, their families and the health care teams who care about and for you.

The Mesothelioma UK nurses are fully aware they will be needed to help on the NHS font line and will likely not be as available to their patients and colleagues.

The nurses have taken a team approach to ensure Mesothelioma UK is here with, and for you and them, throughout.

Whether you are a patient or family member, a support group member or Mesothelioma concerned health care professional, do not ever feel you cannot reach out to us, to talk through your questions, concerns or fears.

We will ensure the information line remains open and will have a specialist mesothelioma nurse available throughout.

We have heightened our social media presence and will do all we can to keep our UK Mesothelioma community together and talking.
