She continued fundraising for the ICR with her trek to Angkor Wat, Cambodia in November 2014, bringing her fundraising total to an impressive £11,000.
Rosemary says, “I enjoy travelling and visiting exotic locations and I like to use this as a great opportunity to raise funds for the ICR. If I can travel and do something worthwhile such as support the ICR’s cancer research at the same time then I really feel as though I have accomplished something. Cancer is a disease which statistically is likely to affect me or someone in my family eventually, so raising money to find a cure – or prevention – is extremely important. I know that 83% of the ICR’s expenditure directly supports research activities. I am therefore proud to play a part in making a difference.”
Lara Jukes, Director of Development at the ICR said, “I would like to thank Rosemary for her amazing achievements. I am extremely grateful for her dedication and commitment – and to other supporters like her - who take on these extraordinary challenges to support our work.”
