Cancer Research

Every year, around 30,300 people in East Anglia hear the words ‘you have cancer’. CRUK funds ground-breaking research throughout our region, from clinical trials running at nearby hospitals, to the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. In fact, Cambridge is one of our major hubs of research. CRUK spent over £42million last year in East Anglia alone on some of the UK’s best scientific and clinical research.

There is a fantastic amount of support in Chelmsford. The local committee have been fundraising for 30 years and have raised over £500,000 in that time!

From golf days at Channels, to Motor Club bbq’s, to fundraising balls and Chelmsford High’s PinkFest to little red hot tub ducks at HotSpring World there has always been some fantastic CRUK fundraising happening in Chelmsford.

Cancer survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years and one day research will beat the disease for good. Research happening right now in East Anglia will help us reach that day sooner.

CRUK receive no direct funding from the government and they rely on every pound, every hour and every person who has donated to the cause. 80p in every £1 raised goes directly into the work we do and the other 20p helps organise more fundraising.

The Family Fun Day on 11 September 2016 is just one more event hoping to raise money for CRUK. Every penny raised from this event will go directly to the charity.

Sadly, we all know someone who has been affected by cancer, and there aren’t many ways in which we can do something to help. Fundraising is the one thing I can do, to raise awareness of what CRUK do for each and every one of us, and to try and raise as much money as possible to help find a cure, and have fun doing it!

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Admiral J McHardy in Springfield 2 weeks ago.. Known amongst fellow Chelmsfordians for many years as the Almer, its new incarnation as the Admiral J McHardy is firstly a name rooted in Chelmsford history.

Captain John McHardy was Chelmsford's first Chief Constable appointed in 1840 and, our landlord tells us, prior to this had an active hand in suppressing the slave trade.
