CLCRF receives generous donation from the Greater Enfield Development Project

The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) was delighted to receive a donation of $8,000 USD ($11080) from the Greater Enfield Development Project.

The project set up an HSE Incentive scheme for the offshore construction and installation of vessels Located 60 km off Exmouth, WA.

The aim of the incentive scheme was to achieve “Zero Lost Time Incident” during construction & installation which involves the elimination of loss-producing events that result in an injury, property damage, or a lost work day. This outcome was successfully achieved.

The offshore workforce was asked to identify 5 worthwhile charities that they have heard of or had personal experiences with.

CLCRF was one of five charities selected and approved by the TechnipFMC Compliance Team to receive a donation.

The presentation of the donations took place on Friday 7 December at the TechnipFMC Office in West Perth.

CLCRF would like to thank the Greater Enfield Development Project for their generous donation.

Merry Christmas from the CLCRF team

The team at CLCRF thank you for your support in 2018 and wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Your support allows us to continue our valuable scientific research into childhood cancers. Over the past 30 years our team of scientists have made amazing breakthroughs into the treatment children receive. It is because of this research that those children have an opportunity to live long and fulfilling lives.

Roll on 2019!

2018 Annual General Meeting

On 5 December at the Wembley Golf Course, Foundation members and invited guests attended the 25th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation.

Geoff Cattach, Chairman, and Andrea Alexander, Executive Officer, each gave their reports on the Foundation’s operations during 2017 and 2018. Geoff proudly reported that the Foundation managed to maintain and in some instances increase research funding, even with the challenges that today’s economy has had on community and corporate support.

The AGM was a great opportunity to address the Foundation’s transition to a Million Dollar Partner of Telethon. “With the additional $500K triggered by our partnership with Telethon, we have been able to expand our research endeavours to continue paediatric brain cancer research as well as new funding for paediatric sarcoma research,” Said Geoff.

Dr Rishi Sury Kotecha was also at the 2018 AGM to update the Foundation about the important research he is conducting at the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Lab at the Telethon Kids Institute. Rishi explained his current studies into a key new drug, Blinatumomab, and whether it can be safely used to treat infants with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

The AGM was followed by the customary CLCRF Christmas Cocktail Party, where members enjoyed beautiful canapés and drinks overlooking the picturesque golf course and lake.
