How we will invest your donation
It has been a very successful two years since we launched the Foundation in 2017.
All funds that we raise are donated to charities who are involved in either:-
Research projects – so many are not funded properly or at all
Pastoral Care – charities who support those currently living day to day with cancer.
So Far we have donated :-
£500,000 to The Christie Hospital, Manchester for the research wing of the Proton Beam Therapy unit. This unit is the first in the UK.Read more…
£68,000 to Maggie’s Centre Manchester. At Maggie’s they offer free practical, emotional and social support to people living with cancer.Read More…
£99,000 to Kidscan to fund three Tim Bacon Foundation Post Graduate fellowship positions at Salford University. Kidscan fund research into treatment for children’s cancers, this receives a fraction of the funding of adult cancers.Read More…
This year we continue our support for Maggie’s Centre and we are also funding a further £100,000 of research by supporting Prevent Breast Cancer for two Tim Bacon Foundation Research Projects in breast density. Breast Density was identified in the 70’s as a key indicator in the likelihood of developing breast cancer but is only just now being fully understood. The work we are funding will assist with early diagnosis which is the most important element in survival rates.Read More…
