We are delighted to announce that, following a vote across all our UK people and partners, Children With Cancer UK has been selected as our national charity for 2019/20.
Children With Cancer UK currently fund more than 60 research projects at centres of excellence around the UK. These projects are investigating a broad range of childhood cancers – helping them to better understand these diseases and to find more effective, less toxic ways of treating them.
Through their investment in research, they are taking forward their understanding of childhood cancer, to give new insights into ways of treating young patients with even the most difficult forms of cancer. They are working to drive up the survival rate still further by developing more effective curative therapies with fewer toxic side effects.
Over the coming year partners and staff from our 23 offices across the UK will work in collaboration to fundraise as much as possible for the charity; from national charity days and auctions to sweepstakes and volunteering, we will go the extra mile to make a difference to this worthwhile cause.
