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.

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

Half of us will hear ‘you have cancer’ at some point in our lives. However, thanks to research and the dedicated scientists, doctors, nurses and supporters in the South West, cancer survival is at an all-time high with one in two people now surviving cancer for 10 years or more. Our ambition is to accelerate the progress and see 3 in 4 people surviving in the next 20 years.

Throughout the city of Bristol, scientists are leading the way in scientific and clinical research. With support from the Business Beats Cancer Bristol Board, researchers are working in partnership with Bristol University as well as hospitals such as the Bristol Royal Infirmary, the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and Southmead Hospital. Vital funding raised by the board is helping the continuation of these crucial research collaborations and improving the care of many patients across Bristol, the South West and beyond.
