Dear Stinsford Old Boy,

This week marks ten years since the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) and the Cancer Research Campaign (CRC) merged to form Cancer
Research UK. Together we've been part of over a century of pioneering research and discovery. We are now the world's leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research.

Thank you for all your support,

The Cancer Research UK team
