Ark will be a winner at Rotary boxing night

A night of great sport in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity and other good causes is coming to Basingstoke – and it will feature one of the oldest rivalries in sport.

Some of the best young English boxers will take on their Welsh counterparts at the 2018 International Boxing Tournament organised by The Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane.

The Hampshire Court Hotel, in Chineham, will again be hosting the popular event which will take place on Friday, March 9.

Beaufort team's great investment of support for Ark

The dynamic team at a thriving financial firm have given timely support to Ark Cancer Centre Charity by adopting it as their Charity of the Year for 2018.

The team at Beaufort Financial chose World Cancer Day on February 4 to announce that they will once again be supporting Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s mission to raise £5million towards a trailblazing cancer treatment centre that will help and support people in the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT) area.

Help Ark by recycling on World Cancer Day

February 4 is World Cancer Day – so what better day to do a small thing that will be a big help to Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Ark is hoping that local people will have a good sort out this weekend and recycle unwanted clothes and shoes in one of the charity's many branded recycling banks that are dotted in and around the Basingstoke area.

It's been 17 months since Ark became a charity partner with Bag It Up Ltd (BIU) – one of the UK’s leading clothing and textile recycling companies.

Champion Group will be 2018 Ark champions!

A well-known Basingstoke company will truly be championing Ark Cancer Centre Charity in 2018.

Over the coming year, the team at Champion Group will be taking part in various events and activities that will raise funds for, and awareness of, Ark and its appeal to provide £5million towards a much-needed unique local cancer treatment centre that will be built in the Basingstoke area.

Ark hits £500K match-funding target

Ark Cancer Centre Charity has hit a £500,000 match-funding target – a milestone achievement in the campaign to raise £5million towards a new cancer treatment centre.

The pledge of £500,000 of match-funding from Greenham Trust for Ark, through not-for-profit cloud platform The Good Exchange, has been a significant factor in the charity’s fundraising campaign as many fundraisers and donors have raised or given money, knowing Greenham will double the contribution.

It's a super Saturday for Ark

It was a super Saturday for Ark Cancer Centre Charity as thousands of pounds were added to the £5million fundraising campaign.

A busy day for the charity saw funds being raised at a Basingstoke RFC sponsors lunch, the annual Hampshire Hospitals Pantomime Players show, and a special charity concert starring a Blondie tribute band.
