LCF Law set to raise thousands for Yorkshire Cancer Research

Yorkshire law firm, LCF Law, has announced it will be fundraising for Yorkshire Cancer Research, its nominated charity for 2024. The firm has a packed calendar of activities to raise thousands of pounds for the charity.

LCF’s team members are invited to give a presentation on a charity that they would like to nominate for the firm’s annual fundraising efforts each year. The firm then invites colleagues to vote on which charity to support.

Last year LCF Law raised £10,000 for the Bone Cancer Trust following a presentation from Sarah McCann from the firm’s conveyancing team. LCF has chosen Yorkshire Cancer Research for 2024. One of the fundraising activities planned will see 13 members of the team taking part in the Leeds half marathon on 13 May.

Members of the firm are also taking part in a sponsored ‘Tour De LCF Law’ cycle challenge and have collaborated with PureGym to set up static bikes in the offices. They hope to cover the distance from Yorkshire to the Tour De France finishing point in Nice, which is 1,064 miles. LCF will include miles completed on static bikes in the offices, as well as miles completed outside of the office through cycling, running, walking, or rowing, for anyone participating.

Sarah McCann comments;

“Cancer is a horrible disease, and everyone will know someone close to them who has or is fighting a fight against it. I have a close friend who was shockingly diagnosed with breast cancer last year at the age of 39. She completed her chemotherapy treatment and has undergone surgery but devastatingly she’s now been told her cancer is incurable.

“I nominated Yorkshire Cancer Research because it does the most amazing job of funding research to help prevent cancer. The number of people surviving cancer has doubled in the last 40 years and research is continuing to change what it means to have cancer. Everything we raise this year will help leading researchers in Yorkshire, along with experts across the UK and throughout the world, to improve cancer survival.

“Our main fundraiser is the half marathon, which my friend will also be taking part in, which goes to show you what a determined person she is and that anything is possible, even with a life-limiting disease.”
