We’re poised for a new era
02 Mar 2021
York Against Cancer has been handed the keys to a brand-new, purpose-built headquarters at the LNER Community Stadium in Huntington.
Julie Russell, our charity’s General Manager, has received the keys from landlords GLL, who run council leisure centres across York including the new leisure complex.
Preparations are now under way to create an exciting new gifts and cards shop and to fit out a modern workplace for our six full and part-time office staff, who are currently based at North Moor Road, Huntington.
Julie said we hoped to complete our move within three months, opening a new chapter in our 30-plus years of providing local cancer care, research and education.
“This is huge for us,” said Julie. “It is a massive step forward that will put us in front of a brand-new audience and give us a springboard into the future.
“We’ll have great visibility that we hope will bring us new customers, supporters, fundraisers and volunteers, and we’ll be able to get the word out that we are there as the go-to place for people to turn to when they most need help.”
As well as welcoming customers to our new shop once lockdown rules are relaxed, we will continue to operate a shop within York Hospital.
