Ralph Lauren Corporation has a long-standing relationship with The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. In 2016, Ralph Lauren helped us launch our state-of-the-art Ralph Lauren Centre for Breast Cancer Research, opened by HRH The Duke of Cambridge and Mr. Lauren.
In October 2019, Ralph Lauren Corporation pledged £1million to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity to establish a Research Zone within the Oak Cancer Centre, a state-of-the-art research facility opening in Sutton.
Most recently, thanks to a United Way Worldwide grant to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity on behalf of the generosity of The Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation, The Royal Marsden has a COVID-19 testing machine onsite. Located in the Ralph Lauren Centre for Breast Cancer Research, this machine means test results will be available in as little as two hours. The Cepheid GX 16-16 machine, which can analyse 16 samples at once, is being used to test any patient where a rapid result is required, as well as for some urgent staff testing.
For more than 20 years, Ralph Lauren has been committed to raising awareness in the fight against cancer, supporting programs for screening, early diagnosis, treatment, education, and patient navigation. Since 2000, through the Pink Pony Campaign (including product sales & fundraising initiatives), Ralph Lauren has supported an international network of cancer charities, with the mission to help reduce disparities in cancer care and ensure that access to quality treatment is available to everyone at an earlier, more curable stage.
Banham has proudly supported The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity since 2015. In January 2022, we were excited to announce that Banham has extended our partnership to 2025 and will be the title sponsor for both the in-person and virtual Banham Marsden March events. This generous new commitment will take us to 10 years of working together - a fantastic milestone in our partnership.
Thousands of people join us for The Banham Marsden March every year to walk between our two Royal Marsden sites in Chelsea and Sutton, with patients, families, supporters of the hospital and Royal Marsden staff all taking part and fundraising. Banham’s support has been vital in helping us make the event such a great success.
In addition to welcoming back the much-loved in person event in 2022, the inclusion of the virtual event will allow walkers from across the UK (or even abroad) to take part in their own area. With more walkers able to take part, The Banham Marsden March will make a difference for more patients at The Royal Marsden and around the world.
Banham staff, along with their friends and family, have proudly walked with us every year as ‘Team Banham’. Since 2015, over 400 members of Team Banham have taken part in the event and raised an amazing team total of over £140,000!

Father & Son Day
Father and Son Day was set up in 2014 by Daniel Marks and Jack Dyson, both survivors of testicular cancer, to inspire men to get talking to each other in order to help raise awareness around male cancer whilst raising money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
To date, Father and Son Day has raised over £280,000, with funds largely supporting a unique robotic surgery fellowship programme at The Royal Marsden, the first of its kind in the UK, to help train the next generation of specialist surgeons in robotic surgery.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, proceeds from the 2020 campaign supported the staff psychological support team, helping to enhance this vital service at a time when staff needed it most. This meant our clinicians were able to deal with the impact of the pandemic whilst continuing to provide the best possible care for cancer patients.
Funds raised from 2021’s Father and Son Day are helping to support the physical and mental wellbeing of patients with cancer, and their families, by funding additional roles in the psychological support service, dietetics and physiotherapy teams.
In addition to raising funds to support The Royal Marsden, the campaign aims to make a real difference by encouraging conversation and inspiring action to increasing awareness around men’s health and male cancers.
