LCF Law pledges to raise thousands for leading cancer charity

Fundraising for Yorkshire Cancer Research | Tour de LCF Law

LCF Law has announced that it will be fundraising for Yorkshire Cancer Research, its nominated charity for 2024, with a packed calendar of activities to raise thousands of pounds for the charity.

Each year team members are invited to give a presentation on a charity that they would like to nominate for the firm’s annual fundraising efforts, before colleagues vote which charity to back.

Last year we raised £10,000 for the Bone Cancer Trust and following a presentation from Sarah McCann from our conveyancing team, Yorkshire Cancer Research was chosen for 2024. One of the fundraising activities planned will see 13 members of the team taking part in the Leeds Half Marathon on 13th May.

Members of the firm have also taken part in a sponsored ‘Tour De LCF Law’ cycle challenge and collaborated with PureGym to set up static bikes in the offices. Anyone cycling on the static bikes in the offices, as well as any miles completed outside of the office cycling, running, walking, or rowing were included. They covered 928 miles in three days, just 136 miles short of their 1,064 target of the Tour de France finish point in Nice from the LCF offices in Yorkshire.

Sarah said: “Cancer is a horrible disease, and everyone will know someone close to them who has or is fighting a fight against it. I have a close friend who was shockingly diagnosed with breast cancer last year at the age of 39. She completed her chemotherapy treatment and has undergone surgery but devastatingly she’s now been told her cancer is incurable.

“I nominated Yorkshire Cancer Research because it does the most amazing job of funding research to help prevent cancer. The number of people surviving cancer has doubled in the last 40 years and research is continuing to change what it means to have cancer. Everything we raise this year will help leading researchers in Yorkshire, along with experts across the UK and throughout the world, to improve cancer survival.

“Our main fundraiser is the half marathon, which my friend will also be taking part in, which goes to show you what a determined person she is and that anything is possible, even with a life-limiting disease.

“The genuine interest and positive feedback from my colleagues at LCF Law is heartening, and throughout the year we’ll continually be raising money for the charity. LCF Law also match funds everything we raise, doubling our total, which is fabulous.”

Yorkshire Cancer Research has been funding research and saving lives since 1925. Today the charity is the biggest funder of cancer research study places in Yorkshire, bringing vital world leading research and expertise to the region. Money raised by LCF Law will be used to support research into new ways to prevent or manage cancer, help find cancer sooner when it’s often easier to treat, and also improve cancer treatment and pioneer new services.
