Here at Barrington James, we have started to become well known for our fundraising and charity events. From Chicken Nugget Challenges to Pub Crawls and Abseils, there is nothing that we won’t do and it is something that is a huge part of our culture and globally in the last few years we have raised in excess of £25,000, however, not many people realise that there is a much more personal reason why we support the charities that we do. Here we catch up with three people from our Head Office in LGW who all hold our Q1 charity, Cancer Research UK, very close to their hearts.

In February 2018, Lauren Tait’s Dad was diagnosed with such a rare cancer that it accounts for less than 1% of all cancer diagnoses. Two weeks after his diagnosis of Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma, a slow-growing, yet incurable cancer, Andy who is 56, had surgery to remove two large muscles in his right thigh along with the 1.5kg tumour, which was then followed by 36 rounds of chemotherapy over a 6 week period. He received the all clear in November 2018 and will continue to have regular check-ups and monitoring, whilst Andy and his family prepare for the inevitable re-occurrence in the future. Due to the rarity of Andy’s cancer, there has been very limited research done to date, but thanks to the fundraising done for Cancer Research, his tumour has been sent to a number of specialists across the world to be researched. Lauren, 22 (pictured left), adds ‘You think your parents are invincible so Dad’s diagnosis was a complete shock but we’re so thankful to Cancer Research UK and the Sarcoma specialists at Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital who’ve given Dad nothing but impeccable service, support and care’

Lan Hudec lost her much loved friend David Joyce, aged 52, 10 months after his brain tumour diagnosis.  A loving husband and Dad, his twin boys were born in Russia in March 2015 and for 17 months David kept in touch and visited as much as he could whilst he was setting up a home for them in the UK. However, their dreams were shattered just a month after the family was reunited. Following his diagnosis and a subsequent operation, David was told that his brain tumour was terminal, but, as Lan (pictured right) explains, this didn’t change David ‘Sometimes David would call just to check if I was doing ok, that was a testament to the kind of person that he was. I last saw him a few months before he passed away and even though he was in so much pain he was still the happy and strong person that I knew. David was one of the most genuine and selfless people you could ever hope to meet and he is missed every single day. I hope that through fundraising other families will not have to go through what David’s has’

Loti Jackson (pictured middle) was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer, on her left cheek at the age of 27. Detected early and following two operations, Loti received the all clear three months after her diagnosis and will shortly be celebrating six years all clear. Loti continues ‘I am so grateful for all of the research that Cancer Research UK had previously done into skin cancer because had that not been the case and my cancer not caught early, there is a chance that I wouldn’t still be here today due to the aggressiveness of my cancer. Since my diagnosis, I have learnt just how much Cancer Research UK relies on their fundraising to continue their fight against all cancers. They are so close to being able to find a cure and I am very proud to work for a company that supports such great charities, especially this one which is so close to my heart’.

In addition to our fundraising days and challenges within the office this quarter, one of our Consultants, Patrick Wagg, has agreed to shave off his ‘beloved hair’ to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Whilst he considers himself lucky that he hasn’t been directly affected, he wanted to support those who have, as Patrick explains ‘You’ll hopefully understand that this decision hasn’t been the easiest but the work that Cancer Research UK does on a daily basis trumps all of my vanities, so I hope that you too can show support by donating any amount of money. Small or large, it will be greatly appreciated and change lives!’
