World Cancer Day in Liverpool on 4th February marked a day to unite together to help write an end to cancer. This week, Cancer Research tell us more about this significant day and their work.
At the Cancer Research UK laboratories in the Royal Hospital, solicitors and investment firms from across Merseyside united together and attended a special seminar introduced by the President of Liverpool Law Society, Alison Lobb, Partner at Morecrofts LLP.
Alison began by welcoming the firms attending and referring to Legacy Liverpool as a great way for the people of Liverpool to remember a local charity by leaving a gift in their Will.
The seminar was led by Louise Scholes, Chair of STEP Liverpool and Senior Associate at Brabners LLP who spoke in great length about the benefits of leaving a gift to charity when making a Will.
Following the seminar, the firms who attended took a behind the scenes look at the work carried out by scientists and researches and were fascinated to hear from Dr Bill Greenhalf PhD about his teams work into pancreatic cancer and some of the rarer forms of cancer which Cancer Research UK are working to find better and kinder treatments and clinical trials.
Alexis Fairclough, Legacy Development Manager for Cancer Research UK said "We would like to thank Morecrofts LLP, Brabners LLP, Kirwans, Russell and Russell and Tilney Bestinvest for attending the seminar on World Cancer Day and for their support in Legacy Liverpool. It was great to be able to show these firms when you write a gift in your Will, you are helping to write and end to cancer.
