Members raise funds to support Mesothelioma UK

Last year ARCA and ATaC staff and members raised £10,000 for Mesothelioma UK by taking part in various activities and events.

The Association supports Mesothelioma UK to help and support people diagnosed with Mesothelioma, a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Still over 2,700 new cases of Mesothelioma are diagnosed each year in the UK; nurse specialists, centres of excellence, research, information and support for health care professionals, patients and families is vital.

“I’m delighted to be able to present the charity with a donation of £10,000,” commented Steve Sadley, Chief Executive of ARCA. “Again this year, it was great to see the Association staff and members support Mesothelioma UK, especially during the Charity Week in September where they undertook bike challenges, muddy fun runs and lots of baking.”

Liz Darlison, Mesothelioma UK, Head of Services, commented, “A huge thank you to everyone who took part in activities, we are extremely grateful for all our fundraisers support. These donations will help Mesothelioma UK to continue to fund the vital work we do and in particular Mesothelioma clinical nurse specialists at NHS hospitals across the UK.”
