The event that staff are taking part in this year is Race for Life. They also take steps to recycle office based materials such as paper, plastics and ink cartridges and the staff in the lab recycle solvents. They are moving to new offices with CRUK situated at the Angel in Islington. This will consolidate all office based activities in one place reducing their carbon footprint. CRUK encourage employees to use public transport whenever feasible and they operate a cycle purchase scheme for those who wish to cycle to work.
