2018 Well-Being Day in Memory of Dr Bernadette Tynan

We ran a Well-being day on 8th March 2018, International Womens’ Day in memory of Dr Bernadette Tynan (also her 52nd birthday) who died of endometrial/womb cancer in August 2017. It was be held at The Old Abbey Tap House, Manchester.

Bernadette left Cracking Good Food some money to continue our community outreach work, but we have decided to dedicate it exclusively to her by raising awareness of womb cancer. She wanted no-one to suffer as she did.


We brought together 3 Doctors leading in this field of womb cancer who each gave a talk, together with well-being practitioners: expect food, cooking, nutrition, therapeutic juices, yoga, massage, counselling and a talk from an academic about why it’s important and healthy to talk about death. Most importantly it was a day to celebrate, life, health and each other.

The very moving film Bernadette requested we make 4 weeks before she died is below:

We are trying to fundraise to enable more of these events for the public to continue:
