World Cancer Day

The 4th February was World Cancer Day and we were selling Unity Bands in Colchester Town Centre on the Saturday and Tesco Highwoods & Tesco Hythe on the Sunday. We collected just over £1400 towards this years total.

Team Fundraising

Fundraising is in full swing and a recent event raised £642.

We now have a dedicated Fundraising Events Website, where you can check in and see what’s going on.

Sponsorship Renewal

It has been said, many times before, but without your support, we would not have raised as much money into the research for a cure for cancer as we have. So, Thank You, again

If we haven’t already been in touch with you, we will soon be, to ask if you would be kind enough to continue with your support.

We are happy to announce that, Process Instrument Sales have pledged their continued support for another year. Thank you Jon & Team

We have a new supporter in the name of Cheeky Radio. They are an internet based, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Reggae RnB radio station who are already promoting Relay For Life and will play our Radio Ad when it is ready

You will have to wait a little longer for news on our major sponsorship deal. This deal, is likely to cover our highest expense, the hire of the Venue which is around £1600
