The annual event in memory of a dearly missed colleague was a great success for the Charity and raised over £2,700 which was doubled by findmeagrant. Thank you to everyone who took part or donated prizes.

Tea Bar Golf Day

Hayden Gowan, owner of The Tea Bar in Basingstoke, regularly organises charity golf days and this year he was supporting the new cancer treatment centre. 48 golfers took part at Sherfield Oaks followed by dinner for 120 guests back at the Tea Bar. It was a great success with nearly £3,000 raised which was doubled by findmeagrant. We are looking forward to a repeat in May next year. Thank you Hayden and Philippa who helped organise the day.

Support from local networking group

The local networking group Women in Business have elected to show their support for the charity for the year starting April 2013. The group which meets monthly holds a collection at each meeting in aid of the charity. Merv Rees was welcomed in May and introduced the group to the charity’s aims. In July, Dr Lara Alloway shared more information about how the cancer treatment centre will benefit the local community. The group who meet monthly support a different charity each year and their support for the charity raised over £700. 

Wentworth Golf Day

Local businessman William Quail of ColdKit UK Ltd supported the charity on 7th June 2013 when he organised a charity golf day at Wentworth golf club Virginia Water. Merv Rees was delighted to have been invited to play at the event and meet up with other local businesses.
