Urbanberry Recruitment Ltd are proud to offer our support to two chosen charities, Pancreatic Cancer UK (a registered charity in England & Wales (1112708) and Scotland (SC046392) and Breast Cancer Now, details of which will be coming soon). Both of these charities are close to our hearts and we’d like to share our promise and our personal stories with you below.
PROMISE: For every placement we make, we’ll donate £10 to each of these charities to fund vital research in to this much needed cause. We’ll also run featured months where we increase the donation amount so watch this space for upcoming news!
** PANCREATIC CANCER AWARENESS MONTH – GETTING PURPLE IN NOVEMBER 2017! **
This November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and we want to go that extra mile to help support this incredible charity. Early diagnosis is absolutely vital to save lives.
- Over 9,600 people in the UK alone this year will receive a pancreatic cancer diagnosis
- For 93% of these people, the predicted maximum survival rate is less than 5 years
- Research is more important than ever to try and give as many of these people as possible the chance to live longer, fuller and disease free lives
*** We will donate £100 to Pancreatic Cancer UK for every placement we make in November ***
So please, send us your vacancies or refer your friends who are looking for a job in travel to us and we’ll do the rest. Your support is gratefully received and WILL make a difference in helping those affected by this disease.
If anyone wishes to donate directly to this worthy cause, please do so by visiting Pancreatic Cancer UK mentioning Urbanberry if you are able to.
As some of you may be aware, my mother in law was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2009. Fortunately, she is still with us today however Pancreatic Cancer is in the top 5 of all cancers with the lowest survival rates. In the UK the survival rate is at 20% in year 1. But only 3% survive up to 5 years and only 1% survive 10 years.
Year on year more people are being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, yet little is known about this devastating disease so more awareness and funding is needed now, and in the future.
Going through something like this with a close family member and knowing these statistics made us realise just how important it is to support research in whatever way we can.
