The Cheeky Girls join an array of celebrities recruited by Cancer Research UK to launch this year's Sunsmart campaign. The awareness drive, which is run in conjunction with the Department of Health, provides information about how to be safer in the sun and protect against skin cancer. This year the charity is focusing on changing the attitudes of young people to sunbathing, and hopes that the campaign will help prevent malignant melanoma, a form of skin cancer that is the third most common cancer among 15 to 39-year-olds. The Sunsmart campaign encourages people to stay in the shade, cover exposed skin and always wear suncream. Other stars including Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri and Olympic rowers James Cracknell and Matthew Pinsent are also lending their support to the campaign.
