We’ve got it made in the shade

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

MORE peo­ple in Cam­paspe will be pro­tected from the sun’s rays thanks to state govern­ment sun­shade grants.

Crossen­vale Com­mu­nity House, Echuca Moama Hockey Club, Leitchville Ten­nis Club and Lock­ing­ton Neigh­bour­hood House re­ceived money to in­stall sun­shades.

Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria Mark Gepp said skin can­cer is one of the most preva­lent, yet largely pre­ventable can­cers, af­fect­ing Vic­to­ri­ans.

“When used along­side other mea­sures like sun­screen and pro­tec­tive cloth­ing, shade struc­tures are the best de­fence against dan­ger­ous UV ra­di­a­tion,” he said.
