Merseyside Regional Head and Neck Cancer Centre
How will head or neck cancer affect my life

2011 Events

A really big THANK YOU to everyone who has helped fundraise for head and neck cancer over the past year.


12th June - Tunnel 10K

The Mersey Tunnel 10K race took place on the 12th June and once again the Mersey Regional Head and Neck Unit was there taking part - raising money for head and neck cancer research.
A photo of some of this year's participants and details of their times can be found through the click through menu to the left.
Thank you to all who took part, and of course their generous sponsors.
And remember - let us know if you want to take part in next year's event!


9th September - Pro-Celebrity Golf Day and Dinner

Sporting starts and professional golfers came together to support our very first Pro-Celebrity Golf day.
Organised by former patient Malcolm Gregson, five times winner on the European Tour, with Ryder Cup and Wold Cup appearances to his name, the event was an amazing success, raising over £17,500. Special thanks must also go to the European Tour, FarmFoods and Champions (UK) Ltd, for their generous sponsorship and support.
Further details, and (hopefully soon) photos from the day can be found through the click through menu.


Marathons - London and Liverpool

In April Rachel Kelly ran the London Marathon, and in October Richard Webster and our own Prof. Simon Rogers ran the Liverpool Marathon, all raising funds for head and neck cancer.
Between them they've raised over £3,800.

14th October - "Head On" 2011

Once again the music event of the year - definitely not to be missed.
Organised by former patient Vince Killen, with performances by Chegwin, The Mono LPs and Crowded Scouse, this year this popular evening of live music and good company raised over £5,000.
