The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity appoints Varun Chandra as trustee

Varun Chandra, Hakluyt’s managing partner, has been appointed a trustee for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, which raises money solely for world-leading cancer centre The Royal Marsden. The charity supports the hospital by funding life-saving research, enhancing treatment and care, building modern patient environments, and investing in state-of-the-art equipment.

Varun said: “Everyone at Hakluyt is extremely proud of our longstanding relationship with The Royal Marsden, which is justly admired all over the world for its groundbreaking research and for pioneering the very latest in cancer treatments. Several colleagues have benefited from treatment at The Royal Marsden, and it is an immense privilege to be joining The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity as a Trustee. I look forward to working with Sir Douglas Flint, a member of the Hakluyt International Advisory Board, with Charles Alexander and the other Trustees, and with Antonia Dalmahoy and her brilliant team, as they continue their pioneering work in healthcare innovation. In particular, I am excited to be supporting them in further defining The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity’s strategy, and pursuing new partnerships both domestically and internationally.”

“I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Varun as a Trustee. He brings a wealth of experience that will be invaluable as the Charity recovers from the impact of the pandemic and looks to form new partnerships. His passion and commitment to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity will be of enormous benefit to The Royal Marsden as they to continue to save and improve the lives of people affected by cancer.”
