In Support of World Cancer Day ’16

Posted: 2nd Feb 2016

World Cancer Day – 4th February 2016

“Together we can do something”

Every year World Cancer Day is marked on the 4th February to raise awareness of Cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment.

World Cancer Day was founded by Union for International Cancer control (UICC) to support the goals of the World Cancer declaration, written in 2008.

The primary goal of World Cancer Day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by Cancer, by 2020.

“8.2 Million Die from Cancer worldwide each year”

For the first time, a number of Cancer charities are collaborating such as Anthony Nolan, Breast Cancer Care and Movember Foundation to provide multiple initiatives to help support this day.

Some of the larger Cancer charities such as Cancer Research and Macmillan Cancer Support have unity bands which can be purchased online or in the charity shops itself.

For more information on getting involved and showing your support check out the World Cancer Day website

Centric Community Projects has helped a number of Cancer charities throughout its years by providing a free work space which can then enable the charity to develop further. Recent charities; Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice who occupy space from us in Maidenhead and Bethany’s wish who occupy space from us in Coventry

Please support our charities. Just get in touch via the above links and together we can help.



Due to loss of some of our funding we were no longer able to afford to remain in our current office space. This meant staff were losing their office and meeting space, with no alternative place to work.
