We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Rupert Lycett Green, former Saville Row tailor and designer, has become our most recent Patron.
Rupert has supported PCA for many years with his biggest event, a 140-mile walk across the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Park, raising over £64,000!
Rupert was married to Candida Rose Lycett Green, author and daughter of John Betjeman, before she sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2014.
“I truly believe that early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is key to improving survival. The small charity does a huge amount to help raise awareness, educate medical professionals and fund research.”
“Candida would have been proud of me and I’m pretty sure my children think it’s good.”
The new Patron will help to achieve Pancreatic Cancer Actions objective – to save lives through early diagnosis – as the current survival rate of the disease is under 7%.
Ali Stunt, PCA’s Founder and CEO says
“We are delighted to have Rupert on board as one of our Patrons. Since losing his wife Candida to pancreatic cancer in 2014, Rupert has thrown himself into raising the profile of pancreatic cancer and raising funds for Pancreatic Cancer Action!
It is wonderful to be able to formalise our relationship with Rupert who is very keen to be involved with the charity in any way he can.”
