E.G. Lewis Group are proud to announce Velindre Cancer Centre as their official charity partner for 2018/19, commencing on Monday 3rdSeptember, 2018.
The partnership will see E.G. Lewis Group engage in numerous fundraising events and activities over the next 12 months to raise vital funds for the Cancer Centre.
The money raised from E.G Lewis’s fundraising will be used to ensure the best possible support is offered to every patient, their families and carers dealing with cancer. It will help Velindre to fund ground breaking research, specialist equipment, and new developments so our staff have access to the most up to date training and techniques available.
We all know of family, friends and loved ones who have been touched by cancer. The incidence of cancer is rising by 2% each year in Wales with nearly 20,000 people diagnosed with this illness each year, and by 2020 one in two of us will develop cancer and 150,000 people will be living with a current or previous diagnosis of this disease.
Velindre staff strive every day to deliver the best cancer services through exceptional care, more people than ever are living with cancer – survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years through better treatments and earlier detection.
Andrew Morris Head of Fundraising at Velindre said “At Velindre we want to lead in the delivery and development of compassionate, individualised and effective cancer care to achieve outcomes comparable with the best in the world. Donations to Velindre are used to fund things over and above those provided by the NHS, so fundraising from companies like E.G Lewis Group really does make a huge difference to patients and their families, and we look forward to working with them”
E.G. Lewis Group Commercial Director, Tim Lewis had this to say about the charity partnership:
“We are delighted to announce Velindre as this year’s charity. We are looking forward to supporting the important work they do to support families fighting cancer and are privileged to be associated with such a worthy cause”.
