Volunteers at the coal face of fundraising for cancer research came face-to-face with researchers to see how their hard-earned cash is being put to good use.

As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations Lancaster University, in partnership with North West Cancer Research, incorporating Clatterbridge Cancer Research (NWCR) opened the doors of its research labs to 45 VIP guests.

More than £400,000 worth of research projects relating to cancer detection, prevention and treatment are being funded by NWCR at Lancaster University. The majority of this funding comes from volunteers on committees including the Lunesdale Committee who have, to date, raised £18,970 for the charity.

The open day offered an insight for fund raisers, into some of the NWCR-funded cancer research projects currently being undertaken by research teams at the university.
