- Cancer causes more than one in four of all deaths in the UK.
- In the UK there were 159, 000 deaths from cancer in 2011 or 430 every day
- Thanks to organisations like Cancer Research UK and others Cancer death rates in the UK have fallen by around a fifth over the last thirty years and by 10% over the last decade.
We all know someone with Cancer, this horrible disease took my father 17 years ago. So I thought what can you do to help improve survival rates for those who contract cancer ? Walk the Wall Group is a group of people all dedicated to raising money, having a lovely walk and meeting old friends. The prime cause though is to raise money. See our website http://walkthewall99.wordpress.com/
We have raised nearly £150,000 for Cancer Research UK over the last 15 years !
I am writing to you to ask for sponsorship for our bi annual walk to raise money for Cancer Research UK. We will walk 60 miles along the coast of Scotland from Longniddry near Edinburgh to Eyemouth Berwickshire from June 13th to June 15th.
I want to raise as much money as I can for this great cause so I am emailing YOU direct to ask you to contribute any amount you can afford and the government will boost that with GIFT AID by 25%!!!
