The Bob Champion Cancer Trust

How it all began


After Bob Champion and Aldaniti won the 1981 Grand National, the interest and enthusiasm generated by 'racing's greatest fairytale' led to the foundation in 1983 of The Bob Champion Cancer Trust. Five years later, nearly to the day of the victory, the Bob Champion Cancer Research Unit was opened within the Royal Marsden NHS Trust Hospital in Sutton, Surrey.

The Trust's commitments have extended beyond the Unit with two patient-related projects: the Aldaniti Rehabilitation Unit plus the Bob Champion Lounge, a leisure area for those having prolonged in-patient care.

The Bob Champion Research Centre for Urological Cancer forms part of the first male dedicated cancer research centre in the UK and helps bring together research expertise into prostate, testicular and bladder cancer. Our aims are to improve methods of detection and treatment, to identify cancer genes, and ultimately to eradicate male cancers.
