Cancer Research Wales Expands Reach with New Stores in Llandudno, Wrexham and Bangor

Cancer Research Wales shops are coming to in Llandudno, Wrexham and Bangor in the next three months

Cancer Research Wales shops are coming to in Llandudno, Wrexham and Bangor in the next three months.

The Llandudno store on Gloddaeth Street will be launching in late February with the Wrexham shop on Priory Street opening for trade in March. Cancer Research Wales’s brand-new Bangor charity shop in the Menai Centre is scheduled to open its doors in May.

The shops will be selling a range of quality goods and providing opportunities for local people to volunteer. Cancer Research Wales is asking the people of North Wales to support its new shops when they open by donating pre-loved items.

Lorraine Boyd, Head of Retail at Cancer Research Wales said: "Opening three new shops in Llandudno, Wrexham and Bangor is an exciting move for us and we’re asking the people of North Wales to support Cancer Research Wales and its life-changing work by donating your pre-loved goods, shopping with us and volunteering your time. Wales.

"In the last decade alone, we’ve invested over £3 million in cutting edge research projects in Bangor and Wrexham which are run by leading researchers, clinicians and health professionals to offer hope for people who are affected by cancer."

Over the last 11 years, Cancer Research Wales has funded over 13 research projects in North Wales with over £3.2 million in grants, including:

- in Wrexham, Bangor University has received a £714,789 grant from the charity to fund the ThinkCancer! project at the North Wales Centre for Primary Care Research. ThinkCancer! will work with GP surgeries to speed up cancer diagnosis so that more people who are diagnosed with the illness will survive.

Investigating the Novel Cancer Antigen TEX19
- Of all cancers, bowel and lung cancers place the greatest burden on the NHS in Wales. There is a clear need for improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of these cancers, as well as the more detailed information about the cancer clinicians need to inform their decisions.

This Cancer Research Wales funded study is investigating the protein TEX19, which is not normally found in healthy tissues but has been linked to both bowel and lung cancer. Bangor University’s Cancer Testis Antigens project has been funded almost £300,000 to investigate bowel and lung cancer diagnosis.
