Julian Supports World Cancer Day 2017

February 3, 2017

Julian recently attended an event in Parliament to show his support for World Cancer Day on Saturday 4 February, 2017.

He met with representatives from seven of the UK’s leading charities who have joined forces to unite the nation and help people affected by cancer.

Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Care, Breast Cancer Now, CLIC Sargent, Anthony Nolan, Bowel Cancer UK and Marie Curie are calling on people across York Outer to show their support by wearing a Unity Band or donating.

By joining forces, the charities will make a bigger impact in transforming the lives of millions who are affected by cancer.

The Unity Bands are made of two parts, knotted together, to symbolise strength in unity and the power of what can be achieved when people join forces.

The bands are available from each charity on their websites, shops and other retail outlets for a suggested donation of £2. All money raised from the Unity Bands will go towards the charities individual work.

One in two people born in the UK will develop cancer at some point in their lifetime.

Julian said: “It is rare to come across someone who has not had their life affected by cancer in some way, whether it be themselves or a family member or friend. The work done by Cancer Research UK and others is so important, and I hope people will support World Cancer Day on Saturday 4th February.”
