E.G. LEWIS GROUP TO HOST CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY IN SUPPORT OF VELINDRE

18 DECEMBER 2018 08:30

E.G. Lewis Group are proud to announce we will be hosting a Christmas jumper day at our headquarters in Llandarcy, Neath on Friday 21st December in support of our official charity partner Velindre Cancer Centre.

Members of staff wearing a Christmas jumper will contribute £1.00 which will be donated to Velindre as part of the festive tradition at E.G. Lewis Group.

The money raised from E.G Lewis Group’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 staff have access to the most up to date training and techniques available.

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.

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.
