About BCRT

The Breast Cancer Research Trust, BCRT, was founded in 1976, and has since that time been fortunate enough to have Dame Vera Lynn as its president.

The Breast Cancer Research Trust is a charity dedicated to funding clinical and laboratory project research, undertaken in recognised cancer centres or research institutions in the UK, directly aimed at improving the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

This is the only Charity specifically promoting research into breast cancer.

Registered Charity No. 272214


The Trustees give their services on a completely voluntary basis to the Trust.
