Cancer Research UK, Syston Support Group

It is with great sadness that we have had to say farewell to our dear friend and Chairperson Mrs Jean Chapple who passed away suddenly on 23rd November 2014. Jean has lived in Syston all of her life and was well known in the town. She was one of the founder members of the group originally fund-raising for Cancer Research Campaign and latterly for Cancer Research UK when it merged with Imperial Cancer Research.
She took on the role of Vice-Chair and then Chairperson for many years. She has always shown great enthusiasm and commitment and will be greatly missed by all of us.
Jean has helped us to raise over £220,000 since the group started in 1988.
We are a small local group and we are very grateful for all the support we get from businesses and the people of Syston and surrounding areas. Each year we hold a Summer Fair and an Autumn Fair at the Methodist Church Hall and have stalls at the Syston Carnival.
We welcome anyone who would like to join us in fund-raising to find a cure and better treatments all for Cancer patients, see contact details below.
