AFI funds cancer research

By Euan Youdale17 December 2014

UK-based AFI has presented Cancer Research UK with a cheque for UK£5,000, which could provide, for example, laboratory clothing and research equipment for five PhD students.

Anne Peace, a representative from Burton on Trent Local Committee for Cancer Research UK, said, “Each year our scientists get closer to finding cures for cancer; whether that’s through targeted treatment or simply detecting cancers earlier. As a result we’ve helped double survival rates in just 40 years.

“We are extremely grateful to AFI for this donation, which will help us to train the researchers of tomorrow who could be making the breakthroughs of the future.”

AFI Sales Director Pete Wajner added, “We are delighted to have been able to make this £5,000 donation to Cancer Research UK, in addition to supporting them through purchasing their Christmas cards. As part of our corporate social responsibility programme we chose to support this charity as so many people are personally or indirectly affected by cancer at some stage in their lives.”
