WeWork

On the 23rd May this year we held a charity networking event at WeWork for people to learn a bit more about the amazing work that Kidscan do. The night was a huge success; business men and women gathered for an informative evening based around our Scientific Director Dr Dave Pye, and Chair of Trustees Martin Keelagher’s presentation.

Representatives from local businesses, trustees and the fundraising board came to hear more about Kidscan and increasing their CSR by working with a charity. A large number of business guests turned out to take part in networking.

During the presentation, Dr Dave Pye spoke of the fundamental research that the charity does, how successful we have been in the past 16 years, what projects are currently ongoing, and what our aspirations are for the near future.

New Trustee Jack Mason gave a speech about his recent work with Kidscan and how it means so much to him emotionally, as a teenage cancer survivor himself. Jack is the CEO and Co-Founder of Dreamr, specialising in such aspects as Virtual Reality, AI and Data. His speech was a more personal part of the evening, which gave the attendees a closer insight into the struggle of cancer on a young person’s life, and therefore why Kidscan is such an important organisation.

Overall the night was a massive success – events like We Work help us to increase awareness of children’s cancer to a wider audience. We would like to thank everyone who attended!
