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.

Cancer patients and their loved ones will be able to see the wonderful bookbench when they visit the Ark-funded centre in the Radiotherapy Unit at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital.

Debbie takes on landmark walk for Ark

SHE is one of Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s greatest supporters – and now Debbie Loveridge is really going the extra mile, and then some, to help raise funds for the good cause.

Debbie has been fundraising and volunteering for Ark – which is raising £5million to help Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT) colleagues deliver supportive care and complementary therapies for cancer patients and their loved ones – for more than six years.
