Speak to Natalie Ellender for just a couple of minutes and you can see why local businesses are signing up for her fundraising event on 29 July. When Natalie talks about her plans to raise funds and awareness for Sarcoma UK, she means it. That kind of sincerity brings people on board.
Sarcoma UK is launching our transformation Genomic Research Programme with the aim of bringing a step change in sarcoma research. We will award £250,000 to one project that brings together the best researchers using the latest technologies using the sarcoma samples collected and analysed in the 100,000 Genomes Project.
More than 5,300 people are now being diagnosed with sarcoma cancer every year in the UK. Previous data suggested the number of annual UK diagnoses was around the 3800 mark, whilst this new data indicates that sarcoma is more common than previously believed.
Working with contemporary fashion brand Scamp & Dude, Sali Hughes and four other influential names in the beauty industry have created a limited edition collection of swag bags to raise money for charities close to their hearts.
