World Cancer Day 2015

On World Cancer Day, 4th February, the Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre teamed up with 6 local charities to do a joint promotional activity in the Town Hall in Oxford. The event was attended by a mixture of charities including: Macmillan, Maggie’s Centre, International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research, Katherine House Hospice, Helen and Douglas House Hospice and Sue Ryder all of which represent the cancer patient journey, in Oxford and around the world.

Charlotte Richards, CRUK Research Engagement Manager says “It’s the first time that all these charities have worked together and it was a great day. A huge bonus was local councillors gaining interest in all the activity that’s happening locally and a good start for what we hope will become an annual event in Oxford. As a Centre, we hope to host many of the attendees on lab tours, so they can see the type of research that’s happening on their doorstep”.
