Charity Number: 1171885
With an estimated 2.5 million people in the UK affected by cancer, Raffingers are pleased to announce ‘ Raffingers Foundation’, a charity we have set up to honour those affected by Pancreatic and Ovarian cancer.
Raffingers Foundation was formed in 2016, in memory of Jason Kew, a dear husband and friend, who sadly lost his life to pancreatic cancer, as well as to honour those family members of the firm who have been lost to ovarian cancer. Approximately 4% of pancreatic cancer patients survive for five years or more from diagnosis; this figure is 46% for those affected by ovarian cancer. Therefore, we host a range of fundraising days throughout the year to help raise money, as well as awareness. We invite you to join us at any of these events as well as to fundraise for us.
The foundation is run by volunteers, which means every single penny raised is distributed in one of two ways:
1. Directly to research projects conducted by Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Ovarian Cancer Action.
2. Directly to families affected by pancreatic or ovarian cancer and experiencing financial difficulties. This money is used to help with costs, such as private counselling for any family members, training and equipment.
