Introduction

Aims and Objectives of Tesco What is an Aim An aim is something a business would like to achieve. A business may only have one aim but others may have more than one. In the private sector a business will aim to make a profit. Where as in the public sector a business would aim to make a profit where possible and also aim to meet strict expenditure targets.

Conclusion

Improving the lives of cancer sufferers has always been at the heart of Cancer Research UK. While there have been no major discoveries of any treatments or cures for patients yet, improving the lives of patients by helping them to lead a simple and hassle-free life is a main goal the charity wants to achieve. Cancer Research UK does not only want to help and assist patients in the UK, they also want to give a helping hand and their support to cancer patients all around the world. This is another reason for their great success and recognition as they do not want to witness cancer dominating the poorer countries of the world because they are a non-developed country. Cancer Research UK will do what ever it takes to extinguish cancer and will carry on its research and understanding until this world is free from such a dreadful disease that has claimed the lives of millions of people worldwide and for this reason, this is why continuing the fight against cancer is one of their aims. All the aims and goals of Cancer Research UK are geared towards caring and curing the many people affected by cancer which fits perfectly in the voluntary/not for profit sector of the economy. This charity as with other charities attracts many volunteers who are prepared to give their time freely, to achieve these aims and help this organisation. ?? ?? ?? ?? Hussain Mousa ...read more.
