First major partnership launched

The European Tour Foundation is proud to launch its first major charity partnership with the the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The funds raised through GolfSixes will go towards The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity’s biggest ever capital appeal to build the new Clinical Care and Research Centre at The Royal Marsden in Sutton. This new Centre will give The Royal Marsden increased capacity to treat more patients in the best possible environments and, with researchers under the same roof as clinicians, there will be more accelerated progress in new treatments.

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. They ensure their nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments, which are used across the UK and around the world. From funding state-of-the-art equipment and ground-breaking research, to creating the very best patient environments, they will never stop looking for ways to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

We launch the partnership at this year’s Golf Sixes and were delighted when LIFElabs, who had committed to donate £4,500 for the birdie challenge decided to increase their gift to £10,000.

Edwin Drumond, Head of Philanthropy at The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said: “It is very generous of LIFElabs to match the amount raised last year and to make this donation to the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. We rely solely on philanthropic support to fund our research and our treatment and care programmes so we’re delighted that LIFElabs have made this contribution to us. We had a fantastic weekend at Golf Sixes and we are very pleased to be working with the European Tour Foundation.”

We will announce further news on this partnership very soon.
