Congratulations to everyone who took part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life on Clapham Common, raising funds to fight cancer. It was an honour to be there to support the event and get the races underway. Over 8 million people have participated in the Race for Life in the past 20 years, raising over £547 million to fund the charity’s life saving work. I welcome these fundraising efforts. Cancer is something that will affect all of us in one way or another throughout our lives and it’s so important that efforts to fight it are properly resourced every stage of the way: from treatment to research.
