My winning proposal: Be specific to win small charity grants

The charity Bowel and Cancer Research provides small grants of up to £50,000 over 18 months. Craig Nicholson spoke to grant-winner Rachael Rigby about the “desperately straightforward” application process.

Rachael Rigby is a lecturer and researcher in the division of biomedical and life sciences at Lancaster University. She won funding of just over £47,000 for a year from Bowel and Cancer Research, which aims to improve the quality of life of people with bowel cancer and other bowel diseases. Her collaborators on the proposal were Andrew Stagg, an immunologist at Queen Mary, University of London, and Arnab Bhowmick and Nigel Scott, both consultant surgeons at the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
