York Against Cancer, a local charity with a mighty heart

The Pavers Foundation has donated £10,000 to York Against Cancer, on behalf of Graham Paver, Trustee of the Pavers Shoes’ charity initiative.

York against Cancer is an independent charity that provides support and help to local people affected by cancer. They fund life-saving research and educate and inform to raise awareness of cancer. Over the last 30 years the charity has raised over £15 million, helping members of the community here in York, North and East Yorkshire in the fight against cancer.

Graham Paver commented on the donation:

“Often local charities can be missed when in the running for funding like this, the Pavers Foundation’s aim is to donate to causes that give back to local communities. We are thrilled to be able to help such a wonderful charity that provides vital support for people who are, or have been, affected by cancer.”

Julie Russell, General Manager of York Against Cancer expressed her thanks to Graham and The Pavers Foundation:

“It’s wonderful that you’ve decided to support a local charity like ours which, in turn, helps the local community.”

“As a charity we rely entirely on fundraising and donations, so to receive a sum like this is fantastic. The donation will go towards supporting families and patients living with cancer and will help to fund a number of our services, whether it's patient transport, providing patients and their families a short break or to fund pioneering cancer research.”
