Saturday, 6th July 2019 saw Cancer Research Wales attend their second show of the year at Treveddu Farm, Pandy in Monmouthshire. The show is Monmouth’s annual celebration of the best of their local community. Inaugurated by the local farming and town communities 200 years ago, the show has certainly moved with the times and attracts thousands of visitors, young and old and this year was no different. The weather didn’t disappoint as we were extremely fortunate to have glorious sun shining down on our stand.
A number of people signed up to receive our monthly newsletter wishing to hear more about the incredible work that is being done at Cancer Research Wales and one lucky lady, Mrs Pam Ward from Gloucester was the winner of 4 free entry passes into Oakwood Theme Park. A massive thank you goes to the team at Oakwood for supporting Cancer Research Wales. Mrs Ward and her family are very much looking forward to spending the day with you.
Cancer Research Wales funds pioneering research here in Wales. Our research is world-class and it’s local, so the developments we make in to the prevention, early diagnosis and better treatments will benefit cancer patients in Wales and across the world. We are an independent Welsh charity, and all the money we raise is spent right here, in Wales. Money raised for Cancer Research Wales goes to clinical and laboratory based cancer research in universities and hospitals across the Wales. That’s where the breakthroughs are taking place. It’s where our scientists are finding answers to the questions that are being asked by cancer researchers all over the world.
