NOVEMBER 2009 FUNDRAISING NEWS

HMCRT funds latest in cancer research with largest individual donation to the trust and contribution from over 80 supporters in the last 12 months in response to Adam Moffatt and Tom Parker's devizes to Westminster challenge. We are delighted to report that the HMCRT has received over 80 donations in the last 8 months which has allowed us to finance the purchase of a refrigerated microfuge which is in use at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The HMCRT would like to take this moment to extend to all its supporters warm wishes as we approach the close of the year and thank you all for your support in our work.

Additionally, the HMCRT is proud to announce that it has since made a large single cash donation to the John Radcliffe Hospital at Oxford University amounting to GBP 4,000 in October. A significant amount of this contribution is thanks to a considerable donation from a CUBC alumnus who has recently heard about the activities of the Trust and recalled fond memories of training with Harry in preparation for Olympic titles in the late 1980's. The funds from this donation are being used to further Professor Cerundolo's team's research into how cytoxic 'killer' T cells seek out and destroy tumours within the body (see Cancer Research link). This donation will finance the purchase of a  "FACS Canto" benchtop analyzer which provides researchers with a proven platform for maximum reliability and proven performance in the analysis of proteins on cell surfaces that facilitate tumour infiltration. We look forward to sharing more news with you about our goals in 2010 and ensuring Harry's legacy is as powerful as his time with us.
