Fight Back Against Cancer (UK)
Fight Back Against Cancer (UK) is a Broxbourne based charity, and was started in 2013 by a family who between them had lost 14 loved ones to various cancers. We felt the need to Fight Back Against Cancer, and we offer the opportunity for anyone similarly affected to join us and FIGHT BACK.
. We give small grants to researchers working to cure or ameliorate cancers.
* Anyone who has been bereaved by a cancer, or is suffering long-term from a cancer, can come to us and nominate a cancer as a target for a research grant. Many people find this helps their own recovery during grief and bereavement.
* We track down the researchers ourselves, and get to know their research history.
* The grants are for equipment or medical chemicals.
* Fight Back Against Cancer (UK) is registered with H.M.R.C. as a charity, for Gift Aid.
* We are all volunteers; we don’t have an expensive office, so no staff salaries and no rent. We won’t waste a penny of your donation.
* Here are some of the researchers and projects we have given a small grant to:
May 2015 Professor Alan Ramsay, Kings College London, working on Non-Hodgkinson’s Lymphoma
July 2016 Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre, Nottingham. Grant paid for

Most people in Broxbourne are fortunate enough never to have to experience homelessness, but for those who do it can be a very traumatic experience that is hard to escape from, damaging physical and emotional well-being.
In January 2019, it is hoped that the Broxbourne Winter Night Shelter Scheme for single homeless people can be established. The aim is to have 7 churches hosting guests on one night each of the week. Each church will arrange its own volunteers but can obtain help from non-participating churches.
Are you willing to help and support someone turn their life around? The scheme is in need of volunteers for various shifts, with flexibility. Probably there will be three shifts: evening 6.30 to 9.30/10pm, set up and welcoming; night shift 10-6.30/7am, secure building and settle guests in; morning 6.30 to 9.30/10am, prepare simple breakfast.
There will be free training provided for all volunteers. Please speak to David Bradburn or David Lee.
