The Aganto Foundation was launched earlier this year to pledge funds and support to charities the Aganto team hold close to their hearts.
This year the team have voted to make Cancer Research their charity of the year, pledging to donate £3k and to also match any individual fund raising efforts by the team.
The temporary building specialist team were given a choice of charities to choose from, but the result was pretty unanimous. It goes without saying the others were all extremely worthy causes but it’s not hard to see why Cancer Research was chosen.
Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer; around 910 people every day. Or, looking at it another way, at least 1 in 3 people in the UK will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime. Sobering facts.
However, it’s not all doom, gloom. UK cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled in the last 40 years and many who may previously have been given no hope, now survive their disease for at least five years. It’s these facts that show the research is working and why we need to help support it.
Cancer Research fund scientists and medical professionals to help fight and beat over 200 cancers. They also provide essential and expert cancer information to the public. You only have to visit their website to see the extent of work they carry out and information they provide.
Aganto are really pleased to be able to help and support their work which is so very important to us all.
