Our CEO, Jan Trevalyan, and his family have run the Yabba Dabba Doo since 2015, raising thousands of pounds on behalf of The Christie Charity.
Each year, the family runs the fundraising event at their home in Lancashire in support of proton beam therapy research and the center due to open at The Christie in 2018.
Proton beam therapy is particularly effective for treating children with certain cancers who are at risk of lasting damage to organs that are still growing. The proton beam therapy research room at The Christie will allow a team of the best scientists, engineers and clinicians in the world to better understand how protons interact and how this pioneering treatment can be harnessed to cure further cancers.
Jan says of his support: “I think it’s important to give back where you can. Research can only help improve future treatments ensuring the outcomes for our little ones with cancer are the best they can be. Indeed they may grow up to be our future doctors, lawyers and leaders of the world.”
The Yabba Dabba Doo is held in November each year. More information can be found at:
