We're Moving!

Since Kidscan was formed in 2002, we have been generously hosted by The University of Salford. So what better way to thank our hosts than inviting them to celebrate the opening of our new office at our very own opening ceremony!?

To mark to occasion we invited officials from The University of Salford, along with some of our supporters to meet the team, the trustees and to take a tour of the labs!

We were also humbled to receive a visit from the High Sheriff of Manchester who opened the office for us.

As she cut the ribbon, Dr Robina Smith gave a heartfelt speech that sums up the importance of every single person who decides to support Kidscan, from the fundraisers to the volunteers.

“The University, The Funders, The founders, the trustees and everybody. The motivation and the inspiration comes from everyone, collectively together, working in collaboration for what matters to our children

“Transformation is never down to one individual, it’s down to a team. So congratulations to Kidscan, and all the key stakeholders and who help you to do such a marvelous job”

After the ribbon cutting we where delighted to introduce The High Sheriff to Dr Dave Pye, our Scientific Director – who gave Dr. Smith a tour of the Kidscan labs to see where some of our vital research is funded.

After the tour the high sheriff sent us a heart warming message:

‘It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to open your fantastic office. I loved every moment and will definitely stay in touch with you to support the fantastic work that you all do.  Please convey my heartfelt thanks to all the staff, trustees and volunteers who work alongside you to ensure our children have a healthy future. ‘

We would like to thank the High Sheriff for opening the office, and to our hosts at Salford University for giving us such a wonderful space that will allow us to grow as a charity – and ultimately fund more research to find safe new treatments for children diagnosed with cancer.
