Breast Cancer Clinical Trials aims to raise awareness of the importance of clinical trials in the prevention, diagnoses and treatment of breast cancer, giving women the chance to take part in ground-breaking research using cutting edge technologies. The charity has raised over £1.9 million over the past 10 years and has been able to conduct over 30 clinical trials, leading to new drugs receiving approval from the Food and Drugs Administration and the European Union as standard treatment.

Peters & May CEO, David Holley, commented: “We’ve been supporting Breast Cancer Clinical Trials now for several years and have raised over £35,000 during this time with the charity shoots and our Pink Lashings scheme. We would like to thank all of those who attended and gave generously to allow us to reach our target, as well as our incredible sponsors, Delphini, E.W.v.d Hude & Son, Normed and Spitfire Marketing, without whom none of this would have been possible. This charity is hugely close to my heart having lost my mother to this disease, and we’re honoured to have been able to support them in this way.”

Ashraf Patel, Specialist for Breast Cancer Clinical Trials, commented: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Peters & May and its sponsors for hosting yet another brilliant charity shoot. Without the backing of companies like Peters & May we wouldn’t be able to support the hundreds of patients that rely on us. We’re already looking forward to next year!”
