Donald's May 2019 Update

4200 TapeStation Instrument from Agilent Technologies

4200 TapeStation Instrument from Agilent Technologies

2018 was a record year in more ways than one.

In 2017/2018  we spent very little except paying the expenses for laying on THE CANCER IMMUNITY SEMINAR which was very well attended at the JR.

So we retained about £6,000 which came from donations for HRR badges and other supporters.

Last year we received a staggering anonymous donation for £10,000 from someone whose father died from cancer and who wanted to support our efforts.

HRR 2018 was also another record year with donations totalling over £7,000.

So I asked Professor Cerundulo on what we might spend over £20,000.

After some deliberation it was decided to purchase a TAPESTATION.  Full details of this can be seen on the link. It is a state of the art technological machine which is exactly what Harry wanted any money donated in his memory to go towards.

As I write this it is 18 years since we lost Harry but every time I need an answer to a coaching problem I ask myself what would Harry do now.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR DONATIONS AND SUPPORT

HMCRT TOPS £100K MARK IN ITS 14TH YEAR

2015 marks the 14th anniversary of Harry's death but the desire to remember him continues as strongly as ever. In 2014 we achieved our target and bought a second Gentle Macs Cell Dissociator. This allow single cells to be dissociated from any infinitesimally small tumour samples. We also gave £1,250 to the PROSTATE PROJECT in Guildford for their Research Team since Paddy Montgomery (Radley Mariner) is teaming up with his Durham roommate to tackle the World's toughest Triathlon to raise money for that cause.

REMEMBERING AND HONOURING TIM NORGATE

After a courageous battle with a brain tumour, Tim Norgate passed away peacefully in the early hours of June 11th. Tim would want any donations to be carefully directed to the front line of medical research. HMCRT as well as Brain Tumour Research are therefore ideal causes and funds will be shared between both charities. Tim was very proud of Radley's successes on the water between 2000 and 2002, attributable to Harry Mahon, of which his son Nick was a part.
