Basingstoke Rotary Charity Dinner delivers Spring boost

Generous guests ensured a Basingstoke Rotary Club Charity Dinner gave local charities a real Spring in their step by raising more than £18,000.

One-hundred-and-sixty people attended the black-tie event on a beautiful evening at Audley’s Wood Hotel (April 19) – and an enjoyable and memorable evening delivered a great result for Ark Cancer Centre Charity, Home-Start North West Hampshire and other local Rotary-backed charities.

Clarke & Son smash £50,000 fundraising target

It was an ambitious fundraising target – but legal eagles from a Basingstoke law firm have absolutely smashed their goal of raising £50,000 for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Clarke & Son Solicitors, based in Winchester Road, was one of the first Our Partner corporate supporters of the fledgling charity in February 2015 – and the team also supported Ark’s £5million appeal, which will help to fund a unique local cancer treatment centre, in 2016-17.

Have a spring clear-out and help Ark

Spring has finally sprung, so this is a great time to have a spring clear-out of your wardrobe and help Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

If you have a bit of spare time over the Easter break or coming weeks, why not fill up a bag or two with clothes or shoes you no longer want and take them to an Ark Bag It Up recycling bank.

It's been just over 18 months since Ark became a charity partner with Bag It Up Ltd (BIU) – one of the UK’s leading clothing and textile recycling companies.

Rugby Club quiz produces great result for Ark

The first Basingstoke Rugby Club Charity Quiz produced a winning result for Ark Cancer Centre Charity as more than £1,250 was raised for the good cause.

Teams from sponsors of the rugby club, many of which are also Ark supporters, took part in the inaugural quiz at the club’s Down Grange headquarters. Ark is the charity of the year of Basingstoke RFC President Dr Steve Tristram.

In a close-fought contest, the PDCM team, led by Basingstoke RFC vice-chairman Dave Cook, pipped a team from Lamb Brooks Solicitors to first place after a tie-break.
