Story

In June of last year our wonderful boss was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and on 7th February 2018 he lost his fight. 

There are no words to describe how much everyone will miss him. He was one of a kind and the world has been left with a huge hole, without him around. 

Rather than sitting on our backsides at work, we (Gayle,
Phylli and Anna) have decided to put our arses into gear on a bike and tackle the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 2018, in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK: https://www.pancreaticcancer.org.uk/ and in Rod's memory.

We want to raise as much money as possible to ensure that more can be done to help those suffering and towards research funding, to help improve the survival statistics surrounding this type of cancer. Research is the only way to find the game-changing breakthroughs that will transform the future for people with pancreatic cancer.

In the last decade, the EU has committed at least £6.2 million to research projects for pancreatic cancer, vital funding which benefits patients and families in the UK. A recent survey by Pancreatic Cancer UK found that 92% of researchers felt that Brexit could negatively impact access to EU research funding. 

Given that pancreatic cancer research already receives
insufficient funding, any reduction in EU funds would significantly limit
progress in fighting this disease. This charity needs our help more than ever.

Thank you x

It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with the deadliest common cancer die within three months. That’s why they need and deserve more. More research, more funding, more breakthroughs. More than hope. Together we’ll make that possible.
