Jewels for Cures was launched recently. A cancer charity, the campaign aims to raise funds for the Cancer Clinical Research Trust (CCRT) founded by Professor John Crown and based in St Vincent’s University Hospital. The charity is asking for donations of gold, precious jewels, fine art and antiques, which will then be auctioned at a special Jewels for Cures Christmas Auction in early December.

Everyone has jewellery in their jewellery box, which is never worn, either broken or having lost sentimental value. Use the value of your unwanted jewellery or that painting that no longer fits with your house to raise money to fund cutting edge cancer research.
