Ark supporters get the message across in new video campaign

‘For the people, by the people’ is the message at the heart of Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s £5million appeal to help fund a much-needed new NHS cancer treatment centre – and today,  Ark launches a new campaign that lets you hear why people have got involved in making this cancer centre happen.

Ark is grateful to our 10 Ark video stars – and we hope that over the next 10 days, their words will inspire more people to get involved by donating, raising money, or raising awareness.

The cricket match is a popular event, and this year Ark – which is raising £5million towards a much-needed NHS cancer treatment centre at Basingstoke hospital – was the charity of choice to benefit from proceeds raised on the day.
