Broadway Financial Planning raise over £3k for Pancreatic Cancer UK
The team at Broadway Financial Planning have raised over £3k for Pancreatic Cancer UK by walking from Cleeve Hill to Broadway Tower following the death of a friend and client last year.
For their challenge the BFP team walked from Cleeve Hill, Gloucestershire to Broadway Tower, Worcestershire on Friday 21st June: midsummer eve. Covering approximately 20 miles of hilly and rough terrain, they arrived at the Tower in time to see the sun set, remembering those that have not been fortunate enough to beat this awful disease.
Due to the loss of a friend and client, Chris Stock, the team at BFP were keen to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer UK, to help fund research into diagnosing this killer disease more quickly.
- 10,000 people are diagnosed each year – equivalent to 27 people every day
- It is often diagnosed late, and progresses quickly
- 1 in 4 people facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis will die within a month
- Receives just 2% of the annual UK cancer research budget – three times less than breast cancer research
Keri, MD at Broadway Financial Planning said:Cancer is something that affects many people either directly or indirectly. At BFP, we support different charities each year and, in 2019, we decided to challenge ourselves to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer UK. As a result of Chris’s death from pancreatic cancer, it felt right that we supported this important charity. We are thrilled to have raised so much so far. Hopefully, it will go some way to help fund more research into this disease.
