St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School Hope in God

Sponsored Walk - Stand Up To Cancer


Well done St Wilfrid's! Despite the weather you raised an amazing £790 for Stand Up To Cancer (Cancer Research UK).  When we told Cancer Research how much you had raised they said:


"Thank you so much for all the wonderful effort everyone put into the walk especially Katie and You, I hope you’re proud of what you achieved. Cancer Research UK really can’t operate and work on breakthrough research without dedicated, kind and wonderful supporters just like you.  

With the amazing £790 raised, we can pay for DNA sequencing experiments that reveals the genetic code of a cancer cell. Every cell in your body contains a code of around 3 billion letters, the code in tumour cells can tell us secrets about cancer. This research tool is at the forefront of revolutionary science and life-saving discoveries and would not have been possible just a decade ago! There would also be monies left over for equipment like petri dishes and test tubes!"

A message for St Wilfrid's

On Friday 25th June, every child at St Wilfrid's will complete a sponsored walk raising money for the charity 'Stand Up To Cancer' (part of the Cancer Research UK Group). We asked Cancer Research UK to send a video message to the children to spur them on their way and here it is!
