The Business Beats Cancer Yorkshire board aims to increase awareness across the region’s business community of Cancer Research UK’s work and to encourage them to work together to support the charity through a range of fundraising activities.

The board is made up of seven Yorkshire business people from a wide range of professional sectors who are determined to help fight one of Yorkshire’s biggest killers by raising funds for life-saving cancer research carried out by Cancer Research UK. The fundraising board is one of a growing network involving business leaders across the UK

Through the pioneering work of our scientists and doctors in the region, we’re determined to make a difference for people with cancer in Yorkshire and beyond.

Many of our researchers in the region are based at the University of Leeds, where their work focuses on a range of cancer types including bowel, blood and skin cancers. They also have expertise in the fields of immunotherapy and radiotherapy.

The Sheffield Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC) and the Leeds paediatric ECMC, which are jointly supported by the National Institute for Health Research in England, bring together lab scientists and cancer doctors from local NHS trusts and universities to speed up the flow of ideas and new treatments from the lab to the clinic. 

Yorkshire is home to the Leeds Clinical Trials Unit delivering innovative and practice-changing clinical research that impacts the care and outcomes for cancer patients in the UK and across the world. A Senior Research Nurse in Leeds supports the delivery of high-quality clinical trials and studies, getting new treatments into the clinic sooner. 

The Business Beats Cancer Yorkshire board have already raised over £200,000 to help fund life-saving cancer research since launching on World Cancer Day 2021. The support across the Yorkshire Business Community has been amazing so far and the board hope to continue their fight to help beat cancer sooner with more exciting events planned for 2024.
