Cancer Research UK Fundraising

On 4th February, World Cancer Day, the entire nation will unite to accelerate progress in the fight against cancer.

Your support is what’s driving each breakthrough that makes beating cancer sooner a reality. In fact, in the last 40 years supporter-funded research has helped double UK survival rates. We can’t stop there.

Here at Grace Academy, we’re going to do things throughout the week leading up to World Cancer Day.

Throughout the week: selling Unity Bands, Keyrings, and “In Honour of…” ribbons

  • Students can also make a donation and receive a paper “In Honour of…” ribbon. They can then write a message on the ribbon, “in honour” of a family member or friend who has been affected by cancer. These paper ribbons will be displayed in the Street area throughout the next couple weeks as a reminder of how many people are affected by cancer.
