After the success of the last two years, we're pleased to invite you and your business to take part in 2019's Bermuda Shorts Week, MUG's flagship summer fund raising and awareness campaign.

This July MUG will once again be running Bermuda Shorts Week… although this year bigger and better.

We're asking the island's men and women to wear shorts and knee length socks for one week.

Why?

We're hoping to increase participation year-on-year to help continue to raise awareness of the signs of cancer.

With skin cancer rates significantly higher in the Channel Islands compared to the UK, MUG is determined to raise awareness and increase sun cream protection around the island… starting with our children!

Last year we successfully raised funds to supply sun cream dispensers to a number of schools around the Bailiwick. We are hoping this year to get all Bailiwick schools signed up; looking to continue protecting the children of our islands from skin cancer and help educate the next generation about the risk of sun exposure.

When?

Monday 8 July to Friday 12 July

We will be hosting a welcome breakfast at the Boat House from 8am - 9am on Monday 8th July for all participants. We'd love you to join us to meet your fellow participants, hear a short presentation and to create an incredible photograph of all participants.

How?

We are asking all participants to pay a £20 registration fee to take part. In return, the first 250 participants will receive MUG Bermuda socks sponsored by Butterfield.

This is where your business comes in - we'd like your business to ask as many members of staff to take part (men and women) in this year's Bermuda Shorts Week and, if it will help increase participation, for your business to potentially pay for its staff participation. As a business you may want to brand your socks in support of MUG or choose a particular colour - maybe some friendly competition between businesses! The local sports shops around the island will supply long socks in a variety of colours.

Next Steps

To register yoursef or your business please email emily.edwards@butterfieldgroup.gg and you will be provided with payment and sock pick-up information.  Or sign up on Justgiving.

Thank you for your continued support of MUG. We're excited for another fun Bermuda Shorts Week and hope you will be a part of it. Please share your photos on our Facebook page.
