We work in the areas where we can make the most impact: 
  • Research – we support the work of over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK to investigate all aspects of cancer.
  • Information – we work to prevent cancer and help people cope with its effects by providing information for cancer patients and their families, health professionals and the general public.
  • Influencing public policy – we campaign to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda.

Andy's Fundraising Story

On July the 11th along with 9 other like-minded fools, I will be cycling the 270mile distance from Marble Arch in London to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris within 24 hours.  This is a trip that people usually try accomplishing over 3 days, but the aim is to cycle continuously (apart from the ferry crossing), averaging over 15mph for 18 hours of cycling. All travel arrangements are covered, so all proceeds will go to charity. I am doing this in aid of Cancer Research UK a charity that is doing great work in its field. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and should be a real challenge so please give generously.
