Charity Project Awards 2019

The inaugural Charity Project Awards 2019, supported by Straumann, will reward the extraordinary efforts of groups of people or not for profit organisations, both in and outside healthcare professionals, who work tirelessly to raise awareness and support people affected by mouth, head and neck cancers.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation exists to improve and save the lives of all head and neck cancer patients. The charity appreciates that other groups exist, which are also working hard on all manner of ways to support head and neck cancer patients, carers and survivors. For example, research, raising awareness, lobbying, promotion, developing products and education. If you are such an entity then the Mouth Cancer Foundation would like to hear about your project and understand how we can help.

This year the awards are possible courtesy of dental implant company Straumann. In 2018 Straumann recruited a group of 50 cyclists to saddle up and cycle an impressive 500 miles across Italy, in just five days, from Lake Garda to Rome. Their efforts raised in excess of £70,000 for the charity, which in turn has enabled us to reach more organisations helping patients by launching the Charity Project Awards.
