Cancer Research UK came into being in February 2002, following the merger of the two foremost British cancer research charities -The Imperial Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) and The Cancer Research Campaign (CRC).  They are the world's leading independent organisation dedicated to cancer research.

Cancer is the biggest killer in the United Kingdom. There are more than 200 known types of cancer, and statistics show that at least one in three people will develop some form of cancer within their lifetime

Today, Cancer Research UK funds the work of 3,000 scientists working in 5 different research areas at centres throughout the UK (working in partnership with local NHS trusts).  The organisation is funded entirely through public donations and proceeds from their shops.

30,000 volunteers  give up their time to support the charity, and over a million women (including our very own Andrea) have participated in the Race for Life events.

Thanks to the work of Cancer Research UK, the survival rate for cancer sufferers is improving all the time.
