For the second year running, the institution is supporting The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity’s #letsgogreen fundraising campaign.

From February 2 to 10 (Let’s Go Green Week), University buildings will be illuminated green. The same week, its catering outlets will be selling green cupcakes in aid of the charity.

Ian White, Domestic Bursar and Executive Director of Hospitality and Residential Services at the University of Chester, said: “The University is a regular supporter of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. Through lots of generous donations into our catering outlets’ collection boxes and Events Management student fundraising evenings, the total raised by the University of Chester since 2011 is now over £7,000. We’ll be encouraging colleagues to show their support during this very significant week in the charity’s fundraising calendar.”

From eight operating sites across Merseyside and Cheshire, The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre makes almost 221,000 patient contacts to over 28,934 patients a year, offering pioneering chemotherapy, radiotherapy and proton therapy treatments.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is the only dedicated charity for patients and research at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. Choosing to support the charity helps to improve patient experience, fund vital research, the latest therapies and innovations in cancer treatment.

Elspeth Wilson, Fundraising Manager at The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity said: “We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from The University of Chester over the years – ranging from fundraising by the students and staff, to volunteering for the charity in the local community. I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved for going green once again this year – you truly are helping to transform cancer care for future generations of cancer patients in our region. Have a great, green couple of weeks.”
