Cancer Research UK
Sadly everyone seems to know someone with cancer. However, Cancer Research UK's vision is a statement of what they aspire to, why they exist and the impact that they would like to have on society. Their vision of beating cancer is an enormous challenge. These four purpose statements set out how they address that challenge.
1) They carry out world-class research to improve their understanding of cancer and find out how to prevent, diagnose and treat different kinds of cancer
2) They ensure that their findings are used to improve the lives of all cancer patients
3) They help people to understand cancer, the progress they are making and the choices each person can make
4) They work in partnership with others to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against cancer
All these points come together to do something positive about cancer. Tomorrow Thursday 13th November, Cancer Research UK are hosting their Christmas Fair at the Bank of England Sports Centre, Roehampton, London, SW15 5JQ in order to raise money for the charity. The fair will be open from 9am - 3pm and there will be many stalls all selling wonderful christmas gifts for everyone. Mai Pearls will also be selling there and donating 12% of our takings to Cancer Research UK, so please come and say hello!
