Hello to our wonderful supporters


We hope that you are keeping well and getting your life back to normal following the ease of covid retrictions. Isnt it wonderful to be back meeting with friends and loved ones.

We are now over half way through the year and the time has come to reflect back on fundraising this year and of all the challenges our supporters have had, and of all the new ideas for events we hope to be able to carry out going forward.

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.

Jon sheds pounds to raise pounds for Ark

IT WAS a truly awesome challenge – shedding four stone in three months and raising £500 for Ark Cancer Centre Charity – but amazing Jon Mills has smashed it!

Jon, managing director of Black and White Accounting, headquartered at Herriard Park, near Basingstoke, beat his daunting weight-loss challenge by one pound – and he has nearly doubled his fundraising goal, clocking up £965 so far.

Father-of-four Jon said: "I had a couple of hiccups along the way, but I'm delighted to have achieved both of my goals.

Your recycling support makes huge difference

A THOUSAND thanks – in fact, make that 16,000 thanks!

Over the last two months, your wonderful support in recycling unloved clothes, shoes and textiles in Ark's 59-branded recycling banks in and around Basingstoke has added up to a £16,000 boost to the charity.

Mark Jones at Ark Cancer Centre Charity, thanked our wonderful supporters who have kept recycling clothes, shoes and textiles in our banks during lockdown. This has made a massive difference to the charity and its campaign to help cancer patients and their loved ones.

Awesome support from Ark supporters

YOU are awesome!

Just days after launching Ark Cancer Centre Charity's The Big Give Christmas Challenge, fabulous support from our wonderful Pledgers means we have hit our target with two weeks to spare.

Make an August pledge to support Ark this Christmas

WE KNOW it's a few months away but Ark Cancer Centre Charity is hoping supporters will make a pledge in the next few weeks to support a Christmas campaign that could make a big difference.

This year, Ark is applying to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match-funding campaign - and we need YOUR help to make it a success.

Jon clocks up the pounds by shedding pounds

HE WANTS to shed pounds off himself and gain pounds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity through sponsorship support - and Jon Mills is going great guns.

Jon, who is managing director of Black and White Chartered Certified Accountants, based at Herriard, has lost an awesome 2st 4lbs in just three weeks - and he has also passed the 50 per cent milestone on the way to his fundraising target.

The 34-year-old dad is aiming to lose four stone in three months and wants to raise at least £500 - so he is well on his way to achieving both goals.
