Proceeds from a pre-Christmas raffle held at Chesterford Research Park will help support and educate young people affected by cancer.

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 (TCT) is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.

The raffle raised over £300 and a cheque was handed to Malcolm and Kate White, area fundraisers for the the TCT, this week. They are dedicated supporters of the charity, having lost their own son Tom to cancer when he was 23.

Katherine Maguire, park manager at Chesterford Research Park, said: “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.”
