Charity description

CARES logo
The objective of the charity is to improve survival rates by raising awareness about the importance of early Cancer screening. Helping to provide the people of East Lancashire with the facilities, support services and equipment to make Cancer diagnosis more readily accessible, enabling quicker treatment.

The cornerstone of CARES is that money raised locally stays local to our community, the money raised by the people of East Lancashire directly benefits them.

As a charity we've launched a partnership with East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust. Together, we will raise funds for local projects that will improve diagnosis and treatment for people with Cancer.

The partnership is to launch a £400,000 appeal for a new Endoscopy Unit at Burnley General Hospital. The appeal will fund an endoscopy machine, treatment table, additional scopes, and monitors. It will enable a further 48 patients per week to be checked, diagnosed and possibly treated – that’s almost 2500 per year! The appeal will enable the Trust to expand its capacity for earlier diagnosis and treatment; improve local provision, providing specialist investigation near to people’s homes; and, increase their ability to treat the simplest cases at the point of examination. Everyone in the East Lancashire area will benefit.
