In just two weeks, Women on the Move Against Cancer (WOMAC) will be hosting its annual fundraising party in the heart of Westminster, and is promising everyone a great night out at One Great George Street.
Tickets are available now – see www.womac.co.uk for details – and all money raised from the party will go towards WOMAC’s chosen charity for 2013, the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
Each year over 8,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It is the fifth most common cause of cancer death and has the lowest survival rate of all cancers – just three per cent of those diagnosed survive for five years. It is also the only cancer that has seen no improvement in this figure over the last 40 years. Compare this with breast cancer where five year survival rates have increased from 50 to 80 per cent. PCRF exists to try to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and, of course, to raise money for research.
WOMAC, a charity made up of female volunteers from the motor industry, was established in 1979. Its aim is to continue the fight against cancer by supporting a variety of projects, searching for more effective treatments or improving the quality of life for cancer sufferers, their families and carers.
Although the annual party is WOMAC’s biggest fundraising event, activities take place throughout the year to raise money for good causes. To find out how you can get involved, please visit www.womac.co.uk or find us on Facebook www.facebook.com/womacfundraising
