Cyclops Group Raises Money in Aid of Cancer Research

On the 28th March, we held a dress down day in our York office to help raise money for Cancer Research, the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research into prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

The dress down day raised £80 in total. The money will be donated as sponsorship to a friend of a Cyclops employee, who had her own personal battle against cancer and is now running the Bupa Great North Run 2014 in aid of the charity to help others beat the disease.
