Emsleys supports cancer charity Mesothelioma UK

Emsleys is proud to be a corporate sponsor of Mesothelioma UK, a national charity supporting those affected by the asbestos cancer.

Based in Leicester, the charity acts as a resource centre providing specialist information, support and education for individuals suffering from mesothelioma and their families and carers. Mesothelioma UK also aims to improve care and treatment for patients by ensuring specialist mesothelioma nurses are available.

The services offered are free, meaning the charity relies on sponsorship and donations.

Director and Head of Asbestos & Occupational Disease Emma Costin commented: “Mesothelioma UK’s work is absolutely vital for those suffering from this asbestos-related cancer. I work closely with those affected by mesothelioma and know first-hand how valued the services offered by the charity are.

“Not only does Mesothelioma UK provide much-needed practical help to those suffering from asbestos illness – such as the helpline, a benefits advice service, practical advice and guidance on symptoms, treatments and therapy – the charity also pays for and sponsors nurses and funds research on emerging treatments and therapy on an international level.

“In the space of a very few years the charity has achieved a great deal.

“I’m looking forward to working with Mesothelioma UK’s Fundraising & Marketing Manager Jill Lemon to promote their invaluable services.”
