Andrew Gwynne has today thrown his support behind Cancer Research UK’s Manchester Institute Appeal which seeks to raise funds to rebuild the Manchester Institute which was badly damaged as a result of a serious fire several weeks ago.
Based within the University of Manchester the institute brings together some of Cancer Research UK’s best researchers who worked in tandem with other academic institutions across the country in order to develop more effective and kinder treatments for cancer patients across the UK and the world.
Last year Cancer Research UK spent £22 million on research carried out in Manchester, including pioneering projects aimed at beating hard-to-treat diseases such as pancreatic and lung cancer.
The work carried out at the Manchester Institute was of critical importance to cancer suffers and their families the world over and it is crucial the damage is repaired so work can begin as soon as possible.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“I was shocked to hear of the fire damage at the The Christie, it’s a real shame as the work Cancer Research UK do there is so important.
“That’s why I’m supporting their appeal to raise money to rebuild the centre; and I’d urge anyone who can support this good cause to do so in any way that they’re able”.
