Dimbleby Cancer Care Goes to No.10

media choice 2242

Samantha Cameron welcomed guests and supporters of cancer care charity, Dimbleby Cancer Care, into her home at No.10 Downing Street  for a special, private reception on 11th November.

The event, which was in partnership with Quintessentially Foundation, saw guests, including local supports, former patients and Secretary for Health Jeremy Hunt walk through the famous door to hear about the charity’s work in delivering cancer care.

Jonathan Dimbleby, Chair of Dimbleby Cancer Care said: “I am grateful to Mrs Cameron for giving us this opportunity to highlight the work of our charity. This year has been important for us as last month we launched our ‘Care for the Future’ appeal. This aims to raise £500,000 over the next two years to help us expand our work to meet a growing need and to develop our new home at the Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital which opens in 2016.

“This is a new chapter in our long history of supporting those in need. Mrs Cameron’s warm welcome has been a real boost for the charity. It was a unforgettable evening which I think inspired everyone who was there.”

The evening gave guests the chance to meet Dimbleby Cancer Care staff and former patients, who were able to talk in detail about the charity’s work and why the new Cancer Centre is so important.
