Great result from a Truly beautiful relationship

It's been a beautiful relationship – and the team at booming business Truly Scrumptious Beauty Salons are celebrating after making a big difference to their charity of the year.

The thriving chain, which has salons in five north Hampshire towns, has been supporting Ark Cancer Centre Charity throughout 2016, and the husband-and-wife team who are the driving forces behind the business have now handed over a cheque for £15,000.

Football club's festive support for good causes

Liza boldly prepares to go bald

SAY hello to Liza Nightingale - a lovely lady who is boldly going to go bald to raise funds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Two years ago, Liza, who works at the Candover Clinic at Basingstoke hospital, was disagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, it was found early, she was treated, and she's fit and well.

Liza's experience has prompted her to do something to help Ark's £5million fundraising appeal - and she has decided to make a very visible show of support by losing her lovely locks at a sponsored head shave.#

Great show of support from Centerprise

They pledged to pull in the pounds to boost a cancer centre charity’s £5million appeal – and the team at Centerprise International have truly delivered a first-class result.

Staff at the award-winning Basingstoke-based IT company, based on the Hampshire International Business Park, in Chineham, vowed to use their fundraising muscle to support three charities during 2016, including Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Team Champion riders raise more than £40k

There were cheers and beers as a team of charity cyclists celebrated a marvellous fundraising feat in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The 24-strong Team Champion The Wacky Riders were among thousands of cyclists who took part in Bike 4 Cancer’s 58-mile London to Brighton bike ride on September 11.

The cyclists were all raising money for the charity’s £5million appeal.

It was hoped that the total would hit £30,000 – but at a get-together to celebrate the success of the fundraising event, it was revealed that the final total has in fact topped £40,000.
