Keeping you updated


Thank you for the kind support you give to Cancer Research UK.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back soon. In the meantime, stay safe and look after yourselves.

Together we will beat cancer.


Ways to stay involved and connected with us

Although many of our volunteering opportunities have sadly been stopped temporarily due to the impact of Covid-19, there are other ways you can support our life-saving work. During this uncertain time, we also want to let you know about available resources and sources of information which may help you. Here you’ll find ways you can support us from home, details of support organisations and external training opportunities that may be useful to you and your families.

Race for Life at Home


Race for Life at Home is a reminder that even though we’re apart, we’re still together and beating cancer.

We’re delighted that we’ve been able to rearrange many of our Race for Life events to later in the year. With the summer approaching however, many of our volunteers are keeping active and united by participating in Race for Life at Home. 

The Big Quiz for Cancer Research UK

Our amazing volunteers raise vital funds to beat cancer in lots different ways but sadly, many of their events have been postponed or cancelled because of the Covid-19 outbreak. Some of our volunteers however, are seizing new opportunities to fundraise for us whilst having fun with friends and family. One way they're supporting us is by organising a virtual Big Quiz from home.
