Welcome to the website of the Greenwich & District local committee of Cancer Research UK, raising funds to help fight cancer by organising local events and having fun at the same time

Join us at our next event:

Gardeners' Questions
Saturday, 21st Apr 2018, 2-4pm
Our panel of experts will include Jim Buttress, the People's Gardener, who presented the Big Allotment Challenge, Andrew Babicz, the secretary of the London Garden Society and Steven Edney, Head Gardener of the Salutation Gardens in Sandwich. Jim is a most entertaining speaker, an expert at the BBC's Gardeners' World Live and was superintendent of the Royal Parks for 25 years. Andrew and Steven will also tell you a little about their jobs before all 3 will help you with your gardening problems.

This should be a wonderful afternoon of entertainment and advice.

Pick up some horticultural tips and get your questions prepared. Please submit them before the event if possible.

Our thanks to:

All our Supporters
A huge thank you to everyone who comes and supports us. We can put on events but we'd be pretty lonely if you didn't come along - and we wouldn't raise very much money for this worth-while cause.

If there's anything else you would like us to run, or an event you'd like to run on our behalf, just let us know.
We are the fund raising committee for the whole of the Borough of Greenwich, running all sorts of events - you are sure to find something that appeals to you.

Join our mailing list to get details of all our events, we do not pass your details on to anyone else and send out our newsletter once every month or two.

Or maybe you would like to come along to our committee meetings, help out at one of our events, run your own event, or simply give us some money to help us fund research into cancer.
