Together we will beat cancer


Thornbury and District Local Committee


Our local Fundraising Group organise various events throughout the year to raise money for Cancer Research UK. We meet about every 6 weeks in Thornbury (near Bristol), so if you interested in joining our group, or would like to help in any of our activities or even just come along to a local event, weメd love to hear from you. You donメt need any experience of fundraising, just enthusiasm and a desire to help beat cancer.
