Research predicts that 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our lifetime. Castle Rock launches the Ultimate Raffle for 1 in 2 Day, the John van Geest Centre's 2017 fundraising day to Crack the Cancer Code!

Recent research predicts that half of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during our lifetime. The John van Geest Cancer Research Centre on Nottingham Trent’s Clifton Campus is a world leading cancer research centre, with emphasis on breast, prostate, brain and blood cancers.

“[…] more research equals more treatments, equals more lives improved and saved.” Professor Graham Pockley

The team of scientists there have a vision to make every diagnosis treatable. That’s where 1in2 Day comes in, and where you can get involved…

Castle Rock is proud to support the work of the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre, and this year we’ve set up ‘The Ultimate Raffle’ for 1in2 Day. We’re offering ONE prize to ONE very lucky winner: the 1in2 Hamper. The hamper contains tickets to our birthday beer festival, meal vouchers, a brewery tour for ten people and more….

See the poster below to find out more, share this post with your friends, buy tickets at your local Castle Rock pub, and let’s raise some money to Crack the Cancer Code!

The raffle closes at last orders on 28th February, and winners are announced on 7th March in your Castle Rock local and on Facebook.

100% of donations the centre receives goes directly on research; work which will impact Nottingham and beyond.
