Leading independent insurance brokers and financial planners, Alan Boswell Group has given £50,000 towards a, Big C funded, cancer research project being undertaken at the Norwich Research Park in Norfolk. This is in addition to the group raising £15,000, in 2017, for the Norfolk and Waveney based charity.
The funds provided will allow Dr Dan Brewer to work with Professor Colin Cooper to research and discover new sub-types of cancer. Understanding these sub-types of the disease is important to help predict survival, inform treatment options and suggest new drug treatment strategies to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
Dr Chris Bushby, Chief Executive at Big C, said “We are extremely grateful to the board of
directors at Alan Boswell Group for their commitment and partnership in this significant cancer research project, which will benefit those affected by cancer locally and far beyond. It is a fantastic example of a corporate organisation pledging their involvement and financial backing to help accelerate the progress of cancer research and enhance our understanding to better prevent and treat the disease. We would welcome approaches from any other organisations interested in this area of support.”
Group Executive Chairman Alan Boswell, comments: “Everyone has a story about somebody close to them who has been affected by this disease. We’re extremely proud to help support the amazing research undertaken right here in East Anglia.”
Big C has a long-standing partnership with Alan Boswell Group, which has seen the company raise nearly £100,000 over the past 20 years for those locally affected by cancer.
