Stand Up To Cancer - October 2012 - Channel 4

Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK are joining forces to launch ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ in the UK. Television, music and film stars will come together in October in a new national fundraising event to galvanise the public in the fight against cancer.

Here's a link to the Stand Up To Cancer web site

Simon Chapman Iron Man - fundraising link

Haslemere Herald dated 24th August has article on page 5 about Simon Chapman who is raising funds for Cancer Research UK and the Bobby Moore Foundation for Bowel Cancer.  He was inspired to do this because his mother Christine, who still lives in Haslemere, was hit by the disease three years ago.

At the time of writing, he's raised £4,242.50 against a target of £2,500.  The donations page is still open, but there's an error on the web link quoted in the paper.  It misses the letters UK from the address, and so the link fails.  Simon's fundraising page is at the following correct address:

Possible bogus collectors in Grayshott/Headley

There are reports on of possible bogus collectors in the Grayshott and Headley areas, collecting on behalf of a cancer research charity, not sure which charity. We have no notification from Cancer Research headquarters that anyone else is collecting locally on behalf of the charity. Accordingly these 'collectors'' have been reported to the police. We will report back here if we have any updates or clarification.
