Cancer Research


Cancer is an illness close to our hearts and most of us know somebody who has been affected by this horrible disease. For this reason, we feel that everybody would donate to a leading cancer charity if they could all afford to do so.

Well, now we all can. Whilst being able to supply our rugs at such competitive prices, we are still able to donate from our profits to Cancer Research UK and you will not have noticed a single penny go out of your pocket. How does that feel to help save lives without it costing you anything?

The Rug Quarter fundraises in aid of Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the world and will stay at the forefront of the global fight against cancer.

1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. Cancer Research UK’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured, from the most common types to those that affect just a few people. The charity is pioneering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer as well as empowering patients, policymakers and the public to make sure advances in research improve outcomes for people affected by cancer.

If you would like to donate to Cancer Research UK, you can do so via our fundraising page, which you can find here.

Every donation, big or small, makes a huge difference. Just £2 (the cost of a coffee) buys a box of microscope slides, just like the ones used in breakthroughs such as the discovery of temozolomide, which has saved the lives of many thousands of people.

£5 kits one of their ground-breaking research labs with essential chemicals needed for day-to-day experiments, helping to beat cancer sooner.

£15 kits out one of their scientists with vital items to protect them in the lab so they can carry out life saving research.

Thank you so much!
