This year the William Henry Smith School has chose to support Cancer Research UK.
Over the next year we will be fundraising for this Charity in a variety of ways. The money raised will help support vital research.
The charities vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive. Their ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years. Cancer Research want survival in the UK to be among the best in the world.
We’re focusing our efforts in four key areas; working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective.
