As individuals, families, or simply close friends or acquaintances, we, or one of our loved ones will all have at some time in our lives been affected by this, as yet, uncontrollable disease which attacks the human body with indescribable suffering to the individuals affected but likewise creating a different pain and angst to families and loved ones.  Therefore, it is most likely you will have, either as individuals or as groups, previously donated to or pro-actively supported in some way either some or most of the leading UK Cancer related Charities to help fund the leading Cancer Research Bodies. We would now like you to support the ESCF.

What the ESCF hopes to achieve is the personal motivation of individuals, Local Companies and Local Organisation, to join us collectively in this effort to try and deal with Cancer more effectively.   Together we can assist in the fight against this totally indiscriminate disease which can attack anyone, anywhere, anytime.   

Our aims and objectives are focused on assisting financially local Cancer related organisations, Hospices and Palliative Care Homes by raising funds through financial donations, sponsored events, organised social and sporting events and through the generous support from the People and Businesses of Glasgow.
