[Trident media release, February 2003]

The University of Leicester-based UK Children’s Cancer Study Group (UKCCSG) has won a major communications industry award with its recently-published book Quest for Cure.

Quest for Cure was edited by Dr Sue Ablett, Executive Director of the UKCCSG, and produced by Trident Communications of Coventry. It traces the development of the organisation hand in hand with advances that have made the treatment of childhood cancer one of the success stories of cancer research over the last quarter century. 

All proceeds from sale of the book, which is available from UKCCSG in Leicester go to support the work of the organisation. 

Said Dr Ablett: “We are delighted both at the way the book is selling, and also the response from professionals and families alike. Quest for Cure is clearly meeting an important need.”

The Midlands region CiB awards, held at the National Space Centre in Leicester, recognise excellence in all aspects of business communications, from writing, photography and illustration to printed publications and online media.
