Business Beats Cancer Bristol

Business Beats Cancer Bristol brings together business leaders to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK. The Business Beats Cancer Bristol board is one of a growing network of boards across the UK. Each board organises an exciting annual fundraising event that brings together businesses in its local area to beat cancer sooner.



Supporting Cancer Research and attending the fundraising Gala Dinner is really important to us as the event will not only raise valued funds but will also raise awareness into the major research being carried out by Cancer Research UK in Bristol. The city is a major hub for research into cancer, with Cancer Research UK coordinating a £4.1m 5-year programme focusing on new ways to predict cancer, as well as ways to prevent it. We are proud to be supporting this prestigious event.

Our board

The Business Beats Cancer Bristol Board was established in 2018 and has brought together a group of committed and dynamic individuals to help unite the Bristol business community. All money raised will help fund vital research projects in Bristol such as the £4.1 million Cancer Epidemiology Programme that is focussing on new ways to prevent and predict cancer developments and progression.

What we're funding in Bristol

Diane Douglas, 45, is a mum of three whose life has changed thanks to life-saving research.

In 2016, Diane, was told that she had acute breast cancer. Just six weeks after major surgery, she was determined to make a difference and launched her technology business, Vigiles Group. Diane subsequently won a major entrepreneur business award and visited 10 Downing Street. But her biggest reward is waking up feeling excited about the future.

In Bristol, scientists are leading the way in research, improving the care of cancer patients, like Diane. The Bristol Beats Cancer Board will help fund this vital research taking place at Bristol University, Bristol Royal Infirmary, Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and Southmead Hospital.
