May 1, 2012 - PRLog -- Macmillan Cancer Support held a fund raising dinner at Chesterford Research Park last Saturday evening, April 28th.

Organised by Annie Roberts, resident of Little Chesterford and head of the Fund Raising Committee the evening attracted 123 guests and raised over £13,500 for the charity.  Founded in 1911 by Douglas Macmillan, Macmillan Cancer Support has grown to become the largest cancer care and support charity in the UK providing practical, medical and financial support and action for better cancer care.

The evening began with a champagne reception followed by dinner and a charity auction.  After dinner, guests were encouraged onto the dance floor with live music from Van Gogh’s Ear and the festivities continued well into the early hours with the auction and a 100 prize raffle.  The auction - compared by Andi Harper from BBC Radio Cambridge - included a number of lots, all of which were donated by local businesses and supporters of the charity.  A particular popular lot was a day’s ‘ownership’ of the Aston Martin car used in the James Bond blockbuster Casino Royale, which raised £400.00.

The event was held at Chesterford’s Nucleus building, ( a 22,000 square feet central facilities building at the very heart of the Park. Boasting magnificent views of the Park lakes and arboretum The Nucleus includes a restaurant, state-of-the-art conference facilities, café bar and health and fitness centre which is used on a daily basis by Park tenants and their visitors as well as being made available for events such as the Macmillan fund raiser.

Chesterford Research Park is ideally situated within easy reach of the City of Cambridge, Stansted airport and the M11.  The Park also operates a taxi service and regular shuttle buses to and from the railway station at Audley End, from which London is only an hour away.  From its South Cambridge position, Chesterford Research Park and The Nucleus are perfectly positioned to offer attractively located, state-of-the-art facilities for both tenants and visitors alike.
