The Bob Champion Cancer Trust

How it all began

After Bob Champion and Aldaniti won the 1981 Grand National, "racing's greatest fairytale" led to the foundation in 1983 of The Bob Champion Cancer Trust.

The Bob Champion Cancer Trust supports and raises funds for the Bob Champion Cancer Research Laboratory, which forms part of the largest male dedicated research facility in Europe, situated at the Institute of Cancer Research in Sutton, Surrey.
