What a year!

Hello to our wonderful supporters

 

We hope that you are keeping well and getting your life back to normal following the ease of covid retrictions. Isnt it wonderful to be back meeting with friends and loved ones.

We are now over half way through the year and the time has come to reflect back on fundraising this year and of all the challenges our supporters have had, and of all the new ideas for events we hope to be able to carry out going forward.

5 K Your Way

 5K Your Way is an excellent way to not only exercise and get some valued fresh air but also to meet new people.  Jaana Jefferies our new Macmillan Support Care Lead for Ark Cancer Charity is keen to get everyone fit to fight cancer!  Jaana is hoping that you will be able to join her and attend a session at some point, they happen on the last Saturday of every month alongside the ParkRun. The next on is on the 25th September at Basingstoke War Memorial Park.

 

Library team's donation is no fiction!

We were delighted this week to receive a donation of a total of £116.00 from the Healthcare Library at Basingstoke.

Throughout the past year the library team raised money by asking people to donate money for fiction books which they hold at the library.  This service has been a long term success for the library.  Where the staff are able to donate good condition fiction books and swap for another or donate to take one away. Not only is this a fantastic way of recycling books but a wonderful way in which they can raise money for the charity.

Calling all you budding gardeners!

Our wellbeing Centre' garden is in full bloom and looking absolutely wonderful and we need your help to keep it that way.

However we are calling on our supporters with gardening skills to volunteer with some weeding and watering.  So if you are that person who can give us an hour or so a week to keep our garden looking tip top we would love to hear from you.

Ark supporter Debbie completes landmark challenge

CHARITY champion Debbie Loveridge is celebrating after completing a six-month virtual trek from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Since January 1, Debbie, who had a hip replacement in February 2020, has been clocking up the miles in all weathers by walking in the area close to her Basingstoke home.

Debbie’s aim was to complete her target of 874 miles – the distance between the two landmark destinations – by the beginning of July, and on June 26, she reached her goal with a few days to spare. Family and friends clapped her home as she walked the final steps.
