Dental team prepare to scale the heights

A dental practice team are gearing up to really walk the walk on a big challenge that aims to pull in thousands of pounds for a local cancer charity.

Every year, the staff at Imogen Dental aim to make a difference to a deserving cause, and in 2017, they have set their sights on raising funds for, and awareness of, Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

More 'Stoke support for Ark

Ark Cancer Centre Charity is proud to be the 2016-17 charity of the year of Basingstoke RFC President Dr Steve Tristram - and the club members and supporters continue to deliver great support to the good cause.

Last month, generous members and guests at the club's Burns' Lunch, which was sponsored by Basingstoke Audi, raised £700 which will be donated to the charity - and the even better news is that the sum will be doubled as it is being paid into The Good Exchange portal which is supported by Greenham Common Trust match-funding.

Ark is proud to be Sitting With Jane charity partner

Ark Cancer Centre Charity is proud to be the charity partner for Sitting With Jane – one of the most high-profile projects in a milestone year of events that will celebrate the life of Jane Austen.

Sitting With Jane will be among the showcase projects in Hampshire as the county hosts a series of events and activities to mark the 200th anniversary of the death of the world-famous author, who spent the first 25 years of her life in Steventon near Basingstoke.

The Good Exchange does a power of good

The Good Exchange is doing Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s £5million fundraising campaign a power of good.

On World Cancer Day, we want to thank our many supporters who have donated through this match-funding portal - and we want to encourage anyone who wants to raise money for the charity to make The Good Exchange the first port of call when it comes to setting up a fundraising page, or making an individual or corporate donation.

1.3million reasons to say thank you

Today is World Cancer Day – so this is an ideal day to say 1.3 million thanks to our wonderful Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters.

Why 1.3 million? Well, because of you, the charity's fabulous supporters, £1.3m has now been raised towards the £5m target that Ark Cancer Centre Charity is striving to hit to help fund the unique local cancer treatment centre that will make such a difference to so many people in the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust area.

Merit Group on board for Ark to Arc

IT'S been a great week for Ark to Arc - and today or over this weekend, you have the power to make it even better.

It's great that more riders have signed up to take part in the fundraising cycle ride over the last seven days - and further good news is that the event now has a Gold headline sponsor.

Take a bow Maria, Sam and the fab team at Merit Group, who have come on board as the main event sponsor.

Liza's bald ambition really pays off!

SHE wanted to make a difference by raising awareness and funds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity - and Liza Nightingale's bald ambition has produced a winning result on both fronts.

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

Cyclists gear up for Ark to Arc

Cyclists who want to take part in a fun challenge and make a difference to two local cancer charities are being urged to sign up for a fundraising ride to the heart of Paris.

Ark to Arc will take place between July 12 and July 16, 2017 and will see 40 riders support Ark Cancer Centre Charity, and Kingsclere-based Bike 4 Cancer.

The cyclists will set off from The Ark Conference Centre, where Ark Cancer Centre Charity is based, on July 12 and they will ride 255 miles to the Arc de Triomphe. On route, the riders will call in at Alencon, one of Basingstoke’s twin towns.

Football club's festive support for good causes

'Tis the season for Christmas carols - and Ark Cancer Centre Charity is delighted to be one of the charities that will benefit from a special carol service at Basingstoke Town Football Club.

The Social Club at the Ark Cancer Charity Stadium will be the venue for the festive event which is taking place on the evening of Monday, December 19.

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.#
