Pies for Guy’s competition
Get baking for Guy’s Cancer Centre Appeal and you can help add the finishing touches to our new £160 million Cancer Centre at Guy’s.
Our new ‘Pies for Guy’s’ competition is part of a £15 million appeal - £5 million has already been raised over the past couple of years and now we want to get everyone involved so we can hit our target.
Building work is well underway and we are on track to open our new Cancer Centre to patients in 2016.
Largely funded by the Trust, the building is also made possible by a grant of £25 million from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity and £15 million awarded to King’s College London for a Research and Innovation Hub.
Our £15 million appeal will help us get over the finish line.
Dr Majid Kazmi, Clinical Director of Cancer Services, says: “I’m sure that our Cancer Centre will be perfect but - and it’s a big but - it’s not finished yet.
“Please help our cancer patients receive groundbreaking treatments and the finest care possible.”
