The Cancer Research UK Summer Lunch – organised by the Crowborough Volunteer Committee – is taking place this year on Wednesday 4 June at the East Sussex National, near Uckfield.
This year, the Summer Lunch is being supported by 22 corporate sponsors and we are delighted to be sponsoring a table.
Over the past few years, the Summer Lunch has grown into one of the largest networking events in our area – attracting 250 people last year and raising £7,000 for the charity. This year, the organisers hope to sell even more tickets – more than 200 have already been sold.
In addition to table sponsors, sponsors onboard this year include Simmons Gainsford (Welcome Drink), WPA (speaker), Dawson Hart (tea and coffee), David Bartholomew (photography), Yes Promo Products (balloons), EM Communications (AV) and Uckfield FM (media).
Around 8,600 people are diagnosed with cancer in Sussex every year and, sadly, every year around half of those people die. That’s 4,500 lives that cancer takes every year in Sussex alone.
Each year, Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer – developing targeted and kinder treatments; detecting cancers earlier so they’re easier to treat; or finding ways to prevent them in the first place.
