Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation receive lifesaving ₤12.5k award

A lifesaving grant has been awarded to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation with hopes of extending the life expectancy of cancer patients with one of the lowest chances of survival. Slater and Gordon awarded the charity ₤12,500 which will help experts detect lung cancer earlier on in patients, giving them a fighting chance of survival. Debbie Barlow, Roy Castle trust manager said:- "This grant will help save lives. Currently, lung cancer survival rates are not in line with many other cases.  Only 38% of patients survive for a year or more compared to 96% of breast cancer patients. This is because the majority of cases are diagnosed too late. This isn't anyone's fault lung cancer is very difficult to detect with symptoms which often only surface once the cancer is at an advanced stage.  This means we have to find ways to detect lung cancer earlier and this grant will help us do that. By funding research into early detection we are identifying potential patients before any symptoms appear, giving people the best chance of survival."

Roy Castle is 1 of the 5 trusts which have received a split of ₤50,000, including the Department of Neurosurgery at Imperial NHS Trust and the University of Glasgow.

The law firm has committed to handing out ₤500,000 in grants to deserving not for profit and charitable causes by 2020.

Since the fund was set up in 2014, more than ₤150,000 has been awarded to organisations.

Andrew Grech, Slater and Gordon's Managing Director, said:- "This sum of money can really make a difference to the future of fighting lung cancer. It is imperative that we keep working towards the hope that one day the life expectancy will be far greater than the saddening number it stands at now. Eventually, one day there will be a cure and anything we can do to propel this process forward is fantastic. We see 1st hand the consequences of catastrophic illnesses and the struggles our clients face. We have already seen many outstanding projects benefit from our fund including leading charities, educational establishments and health institutions. This project makes a real difference to peoples' lives by striving to improve treatment and care and that's something which we feel very passionate."

Liverpool Charitable Initiative Tracker Scheme for Dementia awarded Force For Good grant

MERSEYSIDE based initiative, Tracker Scheme for Dementia Patients receives ₤100 grant in Police Mutual's national community sponsorship programme, Force for Good. Merseyside Police Force where Tracker Scheme is based had nine winning initiatives, which together received over ₤2,000 in charitable contributions from Police Mutual.

Local Community Sergeant Philip Cowin nominated Tracker Scheme for Dementia Patients, which is co run by Sefton Carers Trust and Merseyside Police to help local people whose relatives are suffering from Alzheimer's and Dementia and regularly go missing. In response to this need, Merseyside Police and Sefton Carers Trust have started using ArchAngel tracker devices to trace the missing person, avoid any kind of incident and keep the family informed. Philip explains:- "The initiate provides reassurance to the family of a Dementia sufferer and means that the Dementia sufferer themselves is found earlier which can prevent a tragic outcome. Police Mutual's Force For Good grant will support poorer families with the cost of an ArchAngel tracker, which is usually ₤5 per month, making it a 'life saver' for many."
