Cancer Research

This society is currently inactive. If you would like to restart it, please contact



We are a team of caring, fun and friendly volunteers that are part of the UWE's Cancer Research Society. We do lots of fun events and are always welcoming equally fun volunteers to help us run successful events - the more, the merrier. The best part is that all the money that we raise goes towards the Cancer Reseach UK to help conduct life-saving research.

What we DO?

As mentioned above, we run a lot of fun events throughout the year such as;

  1. Ready! Set! Cure!
  2. Social Events
  3. Collaborative events with other societies

Please keep an eye on our website which we will keep updating, to find out when our events are taking place. You will find all the information regarding our events under our events page.

A Little about what we've done in the past...

Cancer Research Society, alongside 8 other societies, hosted a 24 hour Charity gaming tournament that started on the 14th November at 1pm until 15th November at 1pm, and went through the night in Union 1!

This the amount we have raised so far! You are still able to donate (by clicking here). Alternatively, you can find more information by clicking here

Our first fundraiser was a Space Hopper Race, which was successful and raised £157.96, so we want to do more fun events like this in the future!


Our society is free to become a member, so join and help us fight cancer, because together we will beat cancer.
