Guests ranging from Hollywood movie stars to peers of the Realm joined Samantha Cameron at a reception for Bowel Cancer UK to celebrate the charity’s 25th Anniversary on Tuesday 17th April 2012.
120 people were invited to No.10 to join Samantha Cameron including architect Lord Foster, Hollywood actor Tom Hardy, actress Charlotte Riley, TV presenter Julia Bradbury, Cricketer Chris Read, news presenter Charlene White and Chef Aldo Zilli as well as leading cancer medics, corporate and private donors to help raise awareness of bowel cancer.
Among the guests at the reception was world renowned architect Lord Norman Foster, Bowel Cancer UK’s Ambassador who said: “There is much to celebrate as mortality rates have dropped by nearly 30% over the last 25 years but nearly half a million people have died from bowel cancer. There is still a long way to go to change the profile and image of this curable disease. Join us to raise awareness and save lives.”
Actor Tom Hardy and actress Charlotte Riley said: “”We are honoured to be invited to this event. Bowel Cancer UK is an important charity and that’s why we’re here.”
Deborah Alsina, CEO, Bowel Cancer UK said: “We’d like to thank Samantha Cameron for helping us to raise awareness of bowel cancer. It’s the second biggest cancer killer in the UK. The disease is very treatable especially if diagnosed early. That is why raising awareness of the symptoms is so vital. ”
