”In the Pot” Cookbook Launch

Events l



Please join us in celebrating the launch of

“In the Pot” Cook Book

On Wednesday, 24 November from 8pm in The Café Bar, Kilmacud Crokes, Stillorgan, Co Dublin

In the Pot is a back-to-basics style recipe book with a strong theme of the love that comes from family and friends during good and bad times. This has been achieved through the generous contributions of recipes, with the inclusion of anecdotes that are heart-warming, funny, and enlightening, from well known personalities, cancer survivors and their families. This is what makes In the Pot unique.

The majority of the proceeds will go to the Cancer Clinical Research Trust (CCRT), which supports a cancer research program based in St. Vincent’s Hospital, Dublin City University and University College Dublin. It is a not-for-profit, registered charity so 100% of all money donated will be used to make cancer clinical research options available to patients in Ireland. A portion of the money raised will also be donated to the Patient Care Fund in St. Vincent’s Hospital which helps families who, along with coping with a devastating diagnosis, often have deal with the added financial strain a cancer diagnosis places on a family.

In the Pot will be launched on Wednesday, 24 November at 8pm in the Cafe Bar, Kilmacud Crokes Stillorgan, Co Dublin and will go on sale at O’Briens Wines outlets, EBS branches and other outlets in the area (full list to be confirmed at the launch). A large circle of friends and family are on board to achieve our goal of selling 6,000 copies at €10 per copy.

A Brighter Future

Events l

A Brighter Future was a very special evening which was held on 13 May 2010, to celebrate the 10th anniversaries of both our registered cancer charity, Cancer Clinical Research Trust (“CCRT”) and the introduction of the drug Herceptin, in the treatment of HER2 positive breast cancer in Ireland. The primary focus of the night was on advances in cancer care.

A Brighter Future gave us the opportunity to celebrate our cancer survivors and their families, our committed fundraisers and also the family members of patients who are no longer with us.  Moreover, it gave us the opportunity to thank our patients who have participated in Clinical Trials and the development of new cancer treatments, and also the fundraisers and supporters of our charity, whose support and hard work is vital to the continuation of our cancer research.
