Cancer Research

On Monday 11th November, Edward and Lorraine were lucky enough to be invited to attend the Topping Out Ceremony The at the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, which is being built in Withington and funded by The University of Manchester, Cancer Research UK and The Christie, and is set to revolutionise cancer treatment in the North West.

University President Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, Christie Chief Executive Caroline Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of CRUK Dr Harpal Kumar and Director of MCRC Professor Nic Jones helped to attach the last piece of steel onto roof.

As supporters of this campaign through C&I North West, we were given a tour of the new building to view the progress and watched University President Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, Christie Chief Executive Caroline Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of CRUK Dr Harpal Kumar and Director of MCRC Professor Nic Jones attach the last piece of steel onto roof.

The new research centre will make a massive difference to changing the lives of future generations affected by this awful disease and it was thrilling for us to see it really taking shape.  It was amazing for us to see where the funds we raise at our annual dinner and awards ceremony is going.

The “More Tomorrows” fundraising campaign will raise the remaining £6m needed to complete the new research centre, which will be the largest of its kind in Europe and is due to be completed in Summer 2014.
