Arkriders

Ark supporters honoured at A Place to be Proud of Awards

Congratulations to Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters who celebrated well-deserved success and recognition at the 2018 A Place to be Proud of Awards.

Ark Our Partner supporter Champion Group won the Business and the Community award following a public vote, and fellow Ark Our Partner supporter Lamb Brooks was one of the other two finalists in the same category.

The fabulous Arkriders, who have so far raised more than £170,000 for Ark, were also nominated for awards at the 2018 event and were among the finalists in the Community Project category.

Ark supporters take fundraising to a new height

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again – and that’s exactly what 18 fabulous Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters did as they came, saw and conquered an abseiling challenge at a Hampshire landmark.

High winds on April 7 meant a team of intrepid fundraisers had to reschedule their attempt to abseil down the Emirates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth – so on Sunday, May 13, the determined team returned and completed the feat in style.

Arkriders raise more than £70K

They did it! The fabulous and formidable Arkriders have completed the Ark to Arc challenge – and they are on course to raise more than £70,000.

After four gruelling days in the saddle, the super cyclists rode round the Arc de Triomphe to the final meeting point at the Eiffel Tower at the end of a memorable journey that took them from Basingstoke to the heart of Paris.

The 265-mile journey was an emotional rollercoaster, and no more so than on the final afternoon after cyclist Simon Finch came off his bike just 20 miles from the finish and suffered a broken collarbone.
