When this website
started, one of the goals Mick had in mind was to be able to raise some
serious funds for Mick's chosen charity, Cancer Research UK.
Starting with the 1st Shirt Off My Back Auctions, we have raised, with your
help over £1,500 and have spent the
last year or so setting up bank accounts and the other necessary items so
that this effort is now a recognized one with Cancer Research UK.
"Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to cancer
research. We carry out scientific research to help prevent, diagnose and
treat cancer, and we ensure that our findings are used to improve the lives
of all cancer patients.
We have discovered new ways of treating cancer that together have saved
hundreds of thousands of lives across the world and we work in partnership
with others to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against
We help people to understand cancer by providing life-changing information
to patients, their families and friends. We run cancer awareness campaigns
to help people reduce their risk of the disease. And our campaigning and
lobbying helps keep cancer at the top of the political agenda.
One in three of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. Our
groundbreaking work, funded almost entirely by the general public, will
ensure that millions more people survive."
Thanks to all of you who participated in the early auctions we held here for
helping us to be successful in breaking ground so to speak on this project.

auctions coming up, but wanted to share this 'appy event with you all now !
