LOCAL FOCUS, NATIONAL REACH.....
A Network of Local Sites Helping 2 Beat Cancer
The current inflationary environment is impacting donations to Help 2 Beat Cancer as there is generally less disposable income. This can affect the work of major Cancer organizations like Cancer Research UK (CRUK)
This means there is a need for new initiatives, a need for fresh thinking. The focus of the GBr.Community Network of Local Sites towards Help 2 Beat Cancer is such an initiative from HERAC CIC that provides channels for the local community across Great Britain to help 2 Beat Cancer
From each local site, Merchants can offer their products and services in a multi-vendor marketplace. Merchants are featured for free, but make a donation towards Helping 2 Beat Cancer. Users of the local sites will soon be able to Help 2 Beat Cancer, by making donations direct to the local Cancer Research UK Shop from the relevant local site.
Supporting The HERAC CIC Network
The Founder of HERAC is Alfred Samuels. Early in 2012, he was diagnosed with advanced metastatic prostate cancer and given 6 months to live. He survived due to his participation in the Stampede drug trial, funded by CRUK, for whom he is now an ambassador.
He strongly believes he survived through a combination of; his participation in the Stampede drug trial Programme. Sheer determination, guts and a positive mindset; were his foundation for survival. Consequently, this was coupled with a change of lifestyle
Engaging Local Networks at a Grassroots Level
The Network of Local Sites Provide Channels to Engage Local Networks at a Grassroots Level. It does this by providing local channels to engage with people on an individual basis, and help maintain a relationship with them, across the breadth of ways they want to engage
The GBr.Community Network of Local Web sites, provides tools to facilitate the above from the individual local sites in the network, providing local people who want to support the fight to Help 2 Beat Cancer, a channel from which to do so
Please see featured local sites below. Other local sites will be added in due course.
