Thanking our community supporters
Thank you to our community supporters, whose generosity helps us to deliver ongoing support to people impacted by cancer.
Thank you Rani & Chris
Thank you so much to Rani and her friend Chris for raising £300 for Together Against Cancer.
Rani was so grateful for all the support we provided during her healing journey, that she combined her passion for sewing and crafts with fundraising and spreading the word about our services to others in need. What a beautiful way to give back!
After already raising funds last year from the sale of handmade items she makes and sells at local craft fairs, we were incredible grateful to hear the pair had raised another £300 in November 2023. We are so blessed to have such a kind and thoughtful community.
Thank you Vijay
Vijay has raised a phenomenal £6,302 split between 5 local Leicester charities close to his heart, including Together Against Cancer.
In September 2023, Vijay challenged himself to a 19-day Everest Base Camp trek at 65 years old to honour the memory of loved ones, in particular his mum and dad. The Satya Ram Challenge was named after them.
“My mum was the most generous-spirited, kind and hospitable person you could ever meet and my dad was well known for helping many relatives and friends. I want to help their legacy live on by raising money for five fantastic charities. They are all charities that I know first-hand, that have touched my life in some way and have done so for many other people.”
After 19 days of tough physical endurance, wild weather and some minor injuries, Vijay & team reached EBC! What a tremendously challenging yet rewarding journey, we are in awe of your achievements. A huge well done to all involved and a heartfelt thank you for pushing the limits to raise funds for a number of vital causes.

Thank you Ben
Thank you so much to Ben for raising £500 in donations for Together Against Cancer! We are so grateful for the support.
In the Spring of 2021, Ben and a friend Wesley, set out on a remarkable, 2000-mile motorcycle ride across the length of the UK – from John O’Groats to Land’s End. An incredible achievement as he continues to fund therapies to support his own healing. Just a few months earlier and this challenge wouldn’t have been possible.
