At SciQuip, we are proud to support our colleague's father, David Thornton, who is taking on the challenge of running the London Marathon this year to raise funds and awareness for a local charity called Lingen Davies. 

Who Are Lingen Davies?

Lingen Davies is a nonprofit organisation that aims to enhance cancer services and improve lives in our community. As they say, "We cannot eradicate cancer, but we can make life easier for those who are going through it, or watching loved ones go through it."

The charity was founded in 1979 by a group of local people who wanted to support cancer patients in the area. Since then, Lingen Davies has been providing vital resources and services to help cancer patients and their families cope with the physical, emotional, and practical challenges of the disease. 

Support That Makes a Difference

Lingen Davies offers a range of support programs, including counselling, complementary therapies, financial assistance, and volunteer services. They also fund medical equipment, research projects, and training programs for healthcare professionals.

One of the key initiatives of Lingen Davies is the LiveLife Cancer Awareness Service. This program aims to educate and empower people to recognize the signs and symptoms of cancer, seek early treatment, and undergo cancer screening.

LiveLife Cancer Awareness Service 

The LiveLife Cancer Awareness Service is a mobile facility that can be booked by community groups, organisations, and event organisers to provide cancer awareness sessions. Lingen Davies also offers in-house sessions for corporate partners and local businesses who want to promote cancer awareness and prevention in their workplace.

By working in partnership with NHS Shropshire, Telford, and Wrekin, Lingen Davies is committed to reducing the number of people losing their lives to cancer in the region. They believe that everyone should have access to high-quality cancer care and support, regardless of their background or circumstances. That's why they rely on the generosity of their supporters to fund their programs and services.
