Notes from a busy AGM

On 15 May, we welcomed researchers and engineers from Hull and Sheffield Universities who introduced a novel alternative for speech, created from previous recordings of the speaker, and paired to a smartphone app. NALC's fundraising efforts are bearing fruit, and we're looking forward to upcoming patient days in Scotland and Wales as well as the annual Cancer Focus event in Northern Ireland.

Can you please help NALC with your donation?

NALC is at a critical stage of our development. 

We realise that charities request funding every day and that there are many wonderful reasons to support and donate to all of them. But NALC now needs funding more than ever, and we'd like to ask you to consider supporting us and all the good work we do.

For over 30 years NALC was supported by Macmillan Cancer Support. However, Macmillan has had to reduce this support over the past few years, and NALC must now work hard to become entirely financially self-sufficient. 

This year - 2017 - is the final year in which we will receive funding from Macmillan.

A dedicated NALC sub-committee has produced an agreed action plan which includes ways of reducing our expenses with a variety of different fundraising initiatives.

Please make a donation now.
