About this cause

About our cause

The Charity was founded in 1977 by local GP Ken Jackson and Pontefract General Infirmary Urology Surgeon Mel Robinson. At the time donations by grateful patients and their families were disappearing into a \'black hole\' created by the Health Service of the time. As Ken Jackson had been involved with Sue Ryder in the early days of her Foundation he knew something of charties and their inception. The rest is history. In the past 31 years, thanks to local generosity over £1,000,000 has been raised. The money goes towards the faster acqusition of vital equipment for cancer patients across the area served by the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. In addition local research is funded and \'welfare\' type grants are made. All to try to help to ensure that cancer patients in our area have the best and fastest cancer services possible. They deserve no less.
