Cordwainers Charities

The Master's charity for 2016/17 is the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Each year the Master Cordwainer chooses a charity which members fundraise for. We also support footwear education, the Royal Society for Blind Children, the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, the Royal Free Hospital and almshouses.

Story

On Sunday 19th March 2017, I will be taking part in the Marsden March to raise money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity- just a 5 mile stroll to their Hospital in Sutton. My Livery Company, Cordwainers, have devoted their fundraising efforts in 2017 to the Royal Marsden Hospital. Having recently visited their Hospital in Chelsea to witness the miraculous Research being undertaken in the treatment of breast Cancer, we wish to raise funds to purchase Diagnostic equipment, costing £28,000. With your help, I believe we can achieve our goal!

My motorvation for this event is prompted by our recent first hand family experience in that Mary, our daughter, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last October. Thankfully discovered at an early stage, Mary is back on a clear medical Road. That said, I am sure that many of you have been aware of Cancer cases around you, either with your family or friends. It is a sad fact that nearly everyone will encounter Cancer at some stage in their lives.

The Royal Marsen Cancer Charity raises funds to support the vital, world-leading work of the Royal Marsden Hospital in diagnosing and treating Cancer.
