Cancer Research UK and St Dunstan's receive single donations of £1m or more

Businessman donates to cancer charity, while Help for Heroes supports rehab centre for blind ex-service people

Cancer Research UK and St Dunstan’s, the charity for blind ex-service people, have both received single donations of £1m or more.

Businessman Dr Naim Dangoor has given £1.1m to Cancer Research UK’s information website CancerHelp UK in memory of his wife.

St Dunstan’s has received £1m from Help for Heroes in response to its appeal to raise £4m for an extension of its new rehabilitation and training centre in Llandudno.

The centre, which will open in autumn 2011, will provide rehabilitation and training to  blind service personnel injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will include a gym that will be named after Help for Heroes.
