Preston race day for Cancer Research

Jasmine Armer, from our Healthcare and Clinical Risk Team in Preston, is helping to organise a Race Night to raise vital funds for Cancer Research in memory of her father-in-law, Billy and grandma, Ruth.

Cancer Research UK is a cancer research and awareness charity that works tirelessly to reduce the number of deaths from cancer. It conducts research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease. The charity also provides information and runs campaigns aimed at raising awareness of the disease and influencing public policy. Cancer Research UK’s work is almost entirely funded by the public.

It is estimated that 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with Cancer at some point in their lives. The good news is that cancer survival figures are also increasing due to the amazing work of Cancer Research and other charities. Cancer Research’s goal is to have 3 in 4 surviving the disease by 2034.

Jasmine says: “Cancer can affect any of us. It is likely everyone will know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, is going through treatment, has beaten cancer or sadly knows someone who has died because of the disease. Unfortunately, I fit into the last category and know how devastating cancer can be.”

Jasmine is organising a Race Night on May 25th and anyone can get involved by purchasing a horse for just £3. The owner of the horse must give it a funny, wild or wonderful name and if it comes first on the night they win £10 and bragging rights!

There are 64 horses waiting in the stables to be bought and named. It is first come, first served. Can you pick a winner?

If you would like to support the race night and raise vital funds for Cancer Research then get in touch with Jasmine by email jdarmer@birchallblackburn.co.uk or extension 2286.
