“When I looked into what the charity needs to make the difference, every little helps! Thanks to Cancer Research UK half the people diagnosed with cancer will survive. By 2034 its target is that three in four patients will survive cancer. So by raising funds for this vital research, we can all make a difference, and that is what I want to do!” adds Cathrine.

Aiming to raise at least £300, she wants to let her Balfours work colleagues, neighbours, friends, and family know what she's working towards.
