Bridgwater Friends of Cancer Research UK is a small team of locals whose aim is to raise awareness of the work of Cancer Research UK in the local community and together work hard to raise money to fund research into prevention, cure and kinder treatments.
Cancer Research UK is the world's largest cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. One in two people born in the UK after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
None of our life-saving work would be possible without the strength of our fundraising and our outstanding people — our supporters, volunteers, patients and staff. Bridgwater Friends of Cancer Research UK are dedicated but in need of people to support them. We cover the district of Bridgwater and Sedgemoor organising events and collections, come rain or shine!
Our events include sponsored runs, duck races, fashion shows, dog shows, bingos, stall and fetes not to mention collections at supermarkets. We also support events hosted by our network of supporters from abseiling to a coffee morning! And we never ceased to be amazed by the creativity and generosity of our supporters.
We are looking for people to join us, either as a member of our small committee or as a supporter. The time requirement can be as little as a one-off hour for a collection or a committee meeting each month and as much or as little in between — we value each person for their individual contribution. We need collection team organisers, collectors, people willing to help devise and deliver events, volunteers to keep our supporters informed by writing regular update/newsletters, people to help with publicity and admin — many hands make light work. In short, WE NEED YOU!!
To date we have raised over £900,000 and we need your help to reach the amazing milestone of £1million! If you would like to help or have an exciting event idea please get in contact with us by telephoning 01278 424083, 07809 775114 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We're making progress every day. Together we will beat cancer sooner.
