Strathfield Council has received a large marquee provided by the Cancer Council to promote SunSmart for use at community events.  

The 4.5 x 3 metre SunSmart marquee was generously donated by the Cancer Council in recognition of Council’s efforts to raise community awareness about the importance of sun protection.

The most effective way to be SunSmart is to make the most of the shade offered by marquees, umbrellas and trees.

The Cancer Council recommends the following five SunSmart tips:

• Slip on a shirt
• Slop on some sunscreen
• Slap on a hat
• Seek out some shade
• Slide on the sunnies

For more SunSmart information visit or call the Cancer Council Helpline on 13 11 20.
