FORCE relies on the generosity of individuals, companies, grant-making bodies and our shop to fund its cancer research; its cancer support and information centre and to be able to purchase state of the art equipment to improve cancer diagnosis and treatment.
This year our core funding requirements will top £1.2 million and given the growing demands on our services this is only set to increase – all of this sum will be raised through voluntary contributions. Any donations we receive are greatly appreciated.

If you are able to give us as much information about the donation – whether it is a donation; monies from an event; sponsorship – who you are sponsoring and what they are doing – that would really help our accounting department.
