York Organisations Unite to Win Community Award

York Organisations Unite to Win Community Award

SIMPSON combined its efforts with two other local organisations to win an Aviva Community Award for York University’s Prof. Maitland research into prostate Cancer.

SIMPSON worked with local organisations D E Ford Insurance Brokers and York Vikings Rotary Club to take up the challenge in April to produce a video and gain votes to help Prof. Maitland and his team in their research to find effective treatment for prostate cancer.

The 10k Aviva award, which was generously matched by York Vikings Rotary, will provide Prof. Maitland and his team with the funds they need to upgrade their current microscope with a lens and filter cubes together with a high resolution colour camera and software to interpret the digital images it produces.  This equipment is essential to the scientists research into tumour stem cells and how they develop.
