Gina Cooper, Suffolk representative of Cancer Campaign in Suffolk, said they were delighted that this group of young people had shown such an awareness of the disease by supporting the Cancer Campaign.

"Our first major project is to build a cancer education and information centre in Suffolk to be a focal point for cancer in the county and which we hope will raise awareness of cancer in the community for all ages and all walks of life," she said.
