They ensure their nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments, which are used across the UK and around the world.

From funding state-of-the-art equipment and groundbreaking research, to creating the very best patient environments, they will never stop looking for ways to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

Volunteers do all kinds of things including manning the fundraising shop at The Royal Marsden Sutton, running stalls at outside events such as fairs and fêtes, organising fundraising events and community collecting, and, last but not least, stewarding walkers on The Banham Marsden March, the charity’s annual 15-mile fundraising walk.
