Trafford College are proud to be supporting Cancer Research UK as we join together in the fight against cancer. By focusing on a single charity we hope we will be able to raise vital funds that will go towards making a big difference to those affected by cancer. We are also aiming to educate people about healthy lifestyle changes they can make that could reduce their risk of developing cancer.
The charity was chosen by Trafford College in a nomination process last year and from this we managed to raise a massive grand total of £11,397.76. We are now pleased to announce we will be supporting the charity again during 2011/2012 and hope that our partnership will grow bigger each year, enabling us to raise more money and awareness.
“Thankyou to all staff and students who have raised over £11,000 to help fund Professor Saha’s project at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research UK in Manchester. The money raised has helped to make further advances in treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL)” Lizzie Jones, Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK was founded on the 4th of July, 1902, by doctors and surgeons concerned by the suffering caused by cancer. Today it is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer; their groundbreaking work is funded entirely by public donations, which is why our support is so important. Their sole aim is to save lives, and with donations from our college, along with thousands of others, it means more people than ever beating cancer.
In the UK one in three people will develop Cancer, meaning that most of us will know someone who has already been affected by it. Last year alone a huge £332 million was spent on research activity and Trafford College are proud to have contributed to this worthy cause.
