Team Whiteoaks step up to Ark challenge

THE team at Ark Our Partner supporter Whiteoaks International have really stepped up to the plate when it comes to supporting the charity.

Whiteoaks International, the number one tech PR agency outside London, has raised £1,000 for Ark Cancer Charity after colleagues clocked up more than nine million steps in February.

The Whiteoaks International Step Challenge saw 43 staff, family and even pets getting involved to reach the target in just 28 days — completing 9,377,160 steps and a distance of nearly 5,000 miles.

Art for Ark's sake is a big draw

TWO Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters teamed up for a great competition that resulted in an artistic treat for a lucky winner and two runners-up as well as a lockdown fundraising boost for the charity.

Laura Haystaff, owner of Ark Our Partner supporter The Topiary Salon, which has premises in Old Basing and Kingsclere Road, Basingstoke, and Basingstoke-based artist Sian Storey  organised the event which saw main winner Harry Coomber become the proud owner of Sian’s lovely painting ‘Kindred’.

Recycling support makes a big difference

RECYCLING supporters have been praised for providing Ark Cancer Centre Charity with a crucial fundraising boost – resulting in nearly £63,000 being raised despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Last year, Ark’s partnership with Bag It Up (BIU) Group saw the charity’s income from clothes and shoe recycling in its 50 branded banks in and around Basingstoke and Deane almost double from the impressive £35,333 figure that was raised during 2019.
