Charity of the Year

£350 from each team entering via the corporate route will go to our Charity of the Year which for 2019 is again The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. Based on the Wirral near Bebington, the hospital is dedicated to providing outstanding cancer care to around 27,000 patients each year at their centre in Wirral, their satellite radiotherapy centre in Aintree and at their network of chemotherapy units in local hospitals across the region.

The money raised helps the hospital to offer the most up to date treatment, support vital research, treat patients with world class equipment and provide life-changing support services that would otherwise be unavailable.
