Southport fundraisers secure £15,000 for cancer research in just 12 months

A team of fundraisers from in and around Southport has raised £15,000 for the region's leading cancer research charity, North West Cancer Research.

The Southport based committee of North West Cancer Research (NWCR) celebrated the end of its annual fundraising efforts, announcing that it has raised a combined total of £15,000 in the last 12 months.

To mark the occasion, the committee hosted a Christmas coffee morning at Masonic Hall, Duke Street, to thank local supporters who have helped to raise thousands of pounds over the past year.

NWCR CEO Anne Jackson was presented with a cheque for the amount raised on behalf of the charity. The money will be used to facilitate cancer research projects across the North West, including at the nearby University of Liverpool.

Over 2015, the Southport fundraising committee has hosted numerous fundraising events including regular coffee mornings, a fashion show, cheese and wine evening, summer sparkle and a strawberry tea at Hillside Golf Club.

Supporters have also completed their own fundraising challenges, which have included skydives, marathon runs and golf days.

Olive Cutts, chair of the Southport Committee, said:- "It has been a wonderful year. I can't believe how generous everyone has been over the past twelve months. Their kind support and donations will spur the committee on to make next year even more successful.  On behalf of the committee, I would like to thank everyone who attended our Christmas coffee morning and making it another fantastic event. It was a great way to say thank you to our supporters for their continued and generous support."

North West Cancer Research has committed to funding more than £11.2million of cancer research projects over the next five years. Projects include those at the University of Liverpool and Bangor and Lancaster Universities, helping achieve a better understanding of cancer.

Anne Jackson, CEO North West Cancer Research, said:- "This is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Southport fundraising committee. I would like to thank everyone involved for their generosity and for their continued support year after year.  Without the vital work of our local fundraising committees, like Southport, we wouldn't be able to sustain or fund the world class research projects, which directly benefits people living in the region."
