Secondary1st

Website design and development for UK breast cancer charity

The Brief

Newly formed charity Secondary1st focuses on the prevention and treatment of secondary breast cancer. Set up by Elliott Choueka, the charity was founded in memory of his wife Rosie – a loving mother and talented lawyer, who sadly lost her battle with SBC in June 2015 at just 38 years old. The sad reality of the disease is that 5 in every 100 people with breast cancer already have secondaries when their first cancer is diagnosed. Unfortunately, there is a lack of public knowledge about the disease, and its research is very poorly funded. Upon hearing about the set-up of the charity, CuCo were eager to be involved in both preserving Rosie's legacy whilst helping to prolong the lives of others affected by the disease.

The Solution

CuCo designed and built a fully responsive CMS WordPress website for the charity which was coded and populated all in one month, as an extremely quick turnaround was needed to ensure the site was live in time for the official charity launch hosted by Patron Peter Capoldi. Utilising the new branding, CuCo designed and developed the website into an informative, user-friendly and responsive site that will encourage people to help raise awareness of secondary breast cancer. The site allows visitors to learn about the devastating disease and participate in fundraising opportunities, as well as give donations and keep up with the charity’s latest news.

Results

As promised, the website was designed and built within the one month deadline, just in time for the charity launch. The website will serve as a platform to raise much needed funds towards finding a cure for secondary breast cancer, whilst also keeping Rosie’s memory alive. As Secondary1st becomes more established and begins to flourish, CuCo will be there to ensure the site can expand to meet the charity's growing needs. Over time, the amount of content such as articles and fundraising stories will grow and in particular, more personal stories will be shared of people currently living with secondary breast cancer. Following our work for Secondary1st, CuCo are proud to have been named a Corporate Patron of the charity.

 

"I have worked for a number of years with Cuco across a variety of commercial projects. As a trustee of Secondary1st, Cuco were my obvious first port of call to ask for help with building, designing and maintaining our website. Tony, Christian and their team have never failed to impress and I'm pleased to say that continue to impress through their outstanding work for Secondary1st. The care and attention to detail is beyond expectation and the support CuCo offer is absolutely second to none. I would, without hesitation, recommend their services wholeheartedly."
