We’re in this together

Throughout 2018, Better are partnering with Cancer Research UK to help beat cancer sooner. Cancer Research UK receives no government funding for their research and solely relies on the generosity of the general public. As part of our exciting partnership, we are providing our customers and members a number of opportunities throughout the year to help us raise vital funds for life saving research.

One in two people born in the UK after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. Right now, half of the people diagnosed with cancer will survive their disease for at least 10 years. Cancer Research UK’s ambition is to accelerate progress and see 3 in 4 people surviving cancer for 10 years or more by 2034. Let’s beat cancer sooner!
