LOC fundraisers

Shaolin Loke, CFO at the LOC, ran the London marathon this year in support of Marie Curie, completing the feat in an impressive three hours and 37 minutes, and raising over £3,700.

Shaolin’s family has received help from Marie Curie in the past and she said it made a real difference.

“I wanted to raise money for Marie Curie so they can continue providing their invaluable care and support to others that need it,” said Shaolin. “I feel so grateful to have been able to run for Marie Curie in my first marathon, and also to have made it to the finish line! Thank you to everyone for the amazing support”

Dr Simon Chowdhury, Consultant Medical Oncologist at the LOC, together with his patient, Gary Saunders, has just completed a three-day charity bike ride to raise money for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital.

They joined a team of cyclists to ride from Land’s End to Guy’s to fund research into urological cancers such as prostate cancer – the most common cancer in men the UK, and testicular cancer – the most common cancer in young men.

They are aiming to raise at least £150,000 to fund Dr Chowdhury’s life-saving research into prostate, bladder, kidney and testicular cancer. So far, they have raised over £85,000.
