For the second stop of her On the Road to the Cure tour, Delyth visits Belfast where she meets three Breast Cancer Campaign-funded scientists; Dr Jennifer Quinn, Dr Paul Mullan and Professor Kevin Prise. All three have different stories to tell about the crucial breast cancer research work they do and Delyth is given a tour of their labs as well as presentations about their fascinating work.
Delyth said: “I had a wonderful day in Belfast, exploring the city and then meeting three of our fantastic scientists. Seeing their wide-ranging and innovative work first hand was very exciting, especially hearing about the progress that has been made.
“I was also lucky enough to meet three wear it pink fundraisers from a local school, who joined us for the day. Having them as part of the visit once again highlighted how important our supporters are and that without them none of this research would be possible.”
Much of Breast Cancer Campaign’s work in Belfast, including the Scientific Fellowship of Dr Jenny Quinn, has been funded by our corporate partner Asda. In sixteen years of Tickled Pink Asda colleagues, customers and suppliers have raised £30 million for breast cancer charities Breast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care. Delyth said: “It is thanks to the overwhelming support of our corporate partners, such as Asda, that we are able to dedicate significant funds to invest in our researchers and for that we’re hugely grateful.”
