Park raises much needed funds for Teenage Cancer Trust

Chesterford Park Manager presents cheque for over £300.

Approximately seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and specialist support from the moment of diagnosis. The Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.

To help support the work of the charity, Chesterford Research Park held a pre-Christmas raffle, the proceeds of which will help the charity continue to support and educate young people affected by cancer and fund further research.

The raffle raised over three hundred pounds and the cheque was handed over to Malcolm and Kate White, area fundraisers for the charity this week. Malcolm and Kate are dedicated supporters of the charity having lost their own son to cancer at 23.

Katherine Maquire, Park Manager at Chesterford Research Park commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer support to the Teenage Cancer Trust via this donation. Once again our tenants willingness to participate was most generous and we are very grateful for their consistent support of our charitable initiatives.”
