Russell Scanlan supports leading cancer charity
This year is an important milestone for us as we are celebrating our 130th year anniversary. We have chosen to mark the occasion by supporting the world’s leading cancer charity, which has also been around for over 100 years and is dedicated to saving lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
Sadly, the disease affects so many of us in our day to day lives and more than one in three of us will develop cancer as some point in our lifetime.
Cancer Research UK has been at the heart of the progress that has already seen survival rates double in the last forty years. The charity’s groundbreaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives.
Andy Jenkins, Russell Scanlan’s Operations Director, commented: “Cancer Research UK is doing an absolutely fantastic job in terms of funding world class research, helping patients and their families during their darkest times, and of course campaigning hard to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda.
“Russell Scanlan has been fortunate enough as a business to endure the test of time. Those suffering from cancer unfortunately don’t always have this opportunity. But by pledging our support to Cancer Research UK through various fund-raising activities, we can play just a small part in helping those affected by cancer increase their chance of leading a long and fulfilling life.”
Becky Elphick, Area Volunteer Manager at Cancer Research UK said: “We are absolutely delighted that Russell Scanlan is supporting Cancer Research UK this year and we are really looking forward to working with them to support their fundraising. Every day, around 65 people in the East Midlands are diagnosed with cancer,* so their support will be helping Cancer Research UK’s ground breaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer which has already helped save millions of lives worldwide.”
Russell Scanlan and its 31 members of staff will be raising money continually throughout this anniversary year with the support of partners, clients and business associates. A number of interesting and fun events are currently being planned, including a quiz event. The firm is supporting Cancer Research UK through Unitas Alliance Ltd, which represents 13 of the largest and highly respected independent regional insurance brokers from across the UK.
