The new appointment marks the charity’s recognition of the vital role that Yorkshire businesses will play in its continued success.
Being able to put my skills towards such an important cause is very motivating and I am passionate about getting strong partnerships established within Yorkshire to raise vital funds for cancer research.
From sponsoring students to funding a much needed research machine there are endless means for companies to fund specific projects. I specialise in creating bespoke partnerships that are mutually beneficial, from engaging with employees to event sponsorship.
Over the past five years, Yorkshire Cancer Research has funded £30m of world-class research at the universities of Leeds, York, Sheffield, Bradford and Hull. The charity strives to provide cancer patients in Yorkshire with access to ground-breaking treatments and clinical trials, while working in partnership with other charities and organisations to advance global understanding of the disease.
Having been born and bred in Yorkshire I am a lover of the county and I believe in the power of Yorkshire people to come together and make a difference. I am even more determined to do what I can to fight cancer as my partner lost his mum to cancer when he was just 15 and friends and family have suffered from the disease. There are, without a doubt, too many people affected by cancer and we must work together to put a stop to it.
If you would like to discuss partnership opportunities with the charity, please contact Emma on 01423 877234, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit her LinkedIn profile at www.linkedin.com/in/emmaecoates.
