Bringing the UCH Cancer Fund to my local community


A huge thank you to David Krassenberg for raising over £500 for the UCH Cancer Fund through collection tins.
“I help to raise a bit of money for the UCH Cancer Fund to give back to the people that helped me through my operation and supported me afterwards. I put out collection tins in my local town in Dunstable where I have pubs and shops collecting for me, there are eight tins out there at the moment.
I just happened to pop into one of the shops and offered them a collection tin, and said I would make sure it was collected on a regular basis, and the man in there said “You know what? I’ve been waiting for someone like you to walk into my shop. That’s brilliant!”
I check the tins regularly and take the money out, count it, bank it and then transfer that amount of money to the UCH Cancer Fund via online banking.
I chose UCH because it is a fantastic hospital. The whole treatment process was fantastic because there was no waiting around and there’s always someone to contact if you are not sure of something. It’s been a great support to me, I honestly can’t fault the care at all. Personally, I wanted to give something back to all the staff who have given me great support and help throughout my care.”
