A company wide vote resulted in Cancer Research UK becoming the favoured charity of Jones and Palmer for a year of fun-filled and challenging fundraising. The main purpose of the charity is to save lives by preventing, controlling and curing cancer through ongoing world-class research into over 200 types of cancer.
Many members of staff at Jones and Palmer have personal experience of the pain and distress that cancer can bring to friends and family, and Cancer Research UK was the clear choice for our 2013 charity. A programme of events is planned throughout the year including Jones and Palmer teams represented in the Bupa Great Birmingham Run and Birmingham Triathlon, Charity Car Washes and Cake Sales to name but a few.
We hope the money we raise will make a real difference and help to support further groundbreaking research. With more people beating cancer than ever before – survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years – we want to ensure this progress continues. Wish us luck, find out more about Cancer Research UK or even better support us on Just Giving!
