Funding research that saves lives in Yorkshire

Saving lives in Yorkshire

Yorkshire is big and beautiful and while Yorkshire Day gives us much to celebrate, sadly the lives of too many people in our region are cut short by cancer. With your help, we can fund pioneering research to save lives right here in Yorkshire, in your town, your city and your community.

You are a life-saver

Yorkshire Cancer Research is Yorkshire’s very own cancer charity, dedicated to funding research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer so that people in our region live longer, healthier lives.

Thanks to our supporters, we fund experts and world-leading researchers who pioneer early cancer diagnosis and discover new and better treatments for people with cancer. These life-giving medical breakthroughs lead to the very best chance of recovery for people in Yorkshire.

Where does the money go?

Thanks to fundraisers like you, the charity has funded £43 million in research since 2015 with over 155,000 people taking part in this research. We have 62 active projects, including funding two thirds of all recruitment to clinical trials for cancer in Yorkshire. This vital work is helping to make a difference to the lives of people right across the region - here and now and for generations to come.
