What our donors say

Kevin and Kate McGrath:

“Cancer Research UK is a wonderful organisation carrying out world-class work.

We're thrilled to support their vital work for a number of years and have always been kept abreast of their progress.”

Richard Douglas, Chief Executive of the Masonic Samaritan Fund:

“The research we fund through Cancer Research UK is ground-breaking and could lead to important advances in our understanding of this complex disease.  It is for this reason that we are pleased to be able to continue supporting the important research being undertaken by Dr Hagemann and his team into understanding pancreatic cancer. The combined grant confirms the strong will of Freemasons to support quality research.”

The Masonic Samaritan Fund and the Freemasons’ Grand Charity are long-term supporters of Cancer Research UK. They jointly contribute to a pancreatic cancer research project.

Lady Estelle Wolfson, The Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation: 

“Cancer Research UK is dedicated to beating cancer through ground breaking research. It is only through research that we can unlock the potential cures for this devastating disease.  That is why I am delighted to support Sir Paul Nurse’s team and the important work they are doing to understand the fundamental behaviour of cells.  This will give vital clues as to why cancer occurs, how tumours behave and therefore the most effective ways to treat them.”
