The 50:50 club is a fun way to support our charity and also have a chance to win a prize. Its very easy to play.

Super support from Bison and Zizzi

It was another very n-ice result for Ark Cancer Centre Charity as generous fans of the Trane-sponsored

Champion Group are true Ark champions!

The award-winning team from a well-known Basingstoke company certainly lived up to their name as they raised a record-breaking five-figure sum for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The staff at Champion Group were delighted to donate £10,733.28 to Ark after taking part in various events and activities during 2018.

A charity golf day, fundraising bike ride, and cake bakes were just some of the ways that the members of the construction industry company pulled in the pounds over the 12 months.

Wrestler Rob's tribute to dad will help Ark

He's been a king of the ring for a decade – and now Basingstoke professional wrestler Rob Holte is marking his milestone year with a fundraising drive that will be a tribute to his late dad and make a difference to Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Rob’s dad Keith was 61 when he died in June 2015. Keith, who lived in Basingstoke, had been treated for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma for several years, and often had to travel to Southampton for radiotherapy treatment as this was not available locally.

Bison and Zizzi team up for Ark charity night

Trane-sponsored Basingstoke Bison and Zizzi are teaming up for a second charity evening that will deliver a boost to Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s £5million fundraising appeal.

Long-time Bison sponsors Zizzi are opening their doors to Bison fans on Wednesday, January 23 for a special event which will see some of the Herd become waiters for the evening.

The latest  event follows the success of a first charity event of the 2018-19 season which resulted in more than £300 being raised for the good cause.

Arkriders gear up for 2019 challenge

They are at the heart of the community campaign to raise £5million for a new NHS cancer treatment centre in Basingstoke – and now the Arkriders are gearing up for their 2019 fundraising feat.

Ark Cancer Centre Charity has raised more than £2m as it continues its appeal to help fund the new centre which will provide care and support for cancer patients and their loved ones throughout the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT) area.

Out with the old, in with the new

HELLO 2019 – and Ark Cancer Centre Charity is hoping that supporters will carry the spirit of out with the old, in with the new into this last year of the decade to help the £5million fundraising campaign reach another milestone.

Ark is urging local people to make a resolution to recycle unwanted clothes and shoes in January in one of the charity's many branded recycling banks that are dotted in and around the Basingstoke area.
