JULY 2016: FASCINATING VISIT TO CANCER RESEARCH UK

The team at Ellis Winters & Co in St Ives are this year busy raising money for Cancer Research UK. Therefore, Associate Director, Anne Dellar and Director, Lisa Winters were both delighted to be invited to take a tour of the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute last week.


Explains Anne: “The Institute focuses on tackling questions relating to cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention, supported by world-class core scientific facilities.  As such, it was absolutely fascinating to hear all about the pioneering work the people there are doing to tackle this terrible disease.

 

“Lisa and I learned more about some of the recent break-throughs the Institute has achieved as well as understanding where and how the funds that the public raise are used.  It was a very interesting afternoon and we’re both very grateful to Bob Geraghty, Head of the Biorepository & Cell Services Core for taking the time to conduct the tour.”

 

Concludes Anne: “I would also like to thank the Ellis Winters & Co team in Chatteris for donating their recent winnings from the town’s window display competition to Cancer Research UK!”
