Colour for Cancer Walk
Join in our virtual Colour for Cancer walk and help fight cancer and make a difference to patients at the Royal Free, Barnet and Chase Farm hospitals.
The planned Colour Walk for Cancer in June has been cancelled due to covi-19. We are inviting you to still walk in support of the oncology services at the Royal Free London in your own way.
This is your walk, your way. Whether you walk, run or cycle or do something really different it is your opportunity to support staff and patients as they are looked after at the Royal Free, Barnet and Chase farm hospitls and Edgware and Finchley memorial satelite units.
Every penny raised will help bring colour into the lives of cancer patients and the NHS Heroes who care for them. Different units have different needs, Some need additional chemo chairs, others comfortable waiting areas and for some it is the reimagining and brightening of the oncology care environment for the post covid-19 future.
