The Longest Day will be Ark Day!

It's a fundraising campaign that people in Basingstoke and Deane are at the heart of – and now Ark Cancer Centre Charity is launching a special 24-hour event where everyone in the borough can make a big difference in a small way.

Friday, June 21, 2019 will be Ark Day – a day when everyone in the town and borough can play a part by supporting the charity that is raising £5million to help fund the much-needed NHS cancer treatment centre at Basingstoke hospital.

Champion Group are true Ark champions!

The award-winning team from a well-known Basingstoke company certainly lived up to their name as they raised a record-breaking five-figure sum for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The staff at Champion Group were delighted to donate £10,733.28 to Ark after taking part in various events and activities during 2018.

A charity golf day, fundraising bike ride, and cake bakes were just some of the ways that the members of the construction industry company pulled in the pounds over the 12 months.

Rob’s dad Keith was 61 when he died in June 2015. Keith, who lived in Basingstoke, had been treated for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma for several years, and often had to travel to Southampton for radiotherapy treatment as this was not available locally.

Ark Cancer Centre Charity has raised more than £2m as it continues its appeal to help fund the new centre which will provide care and support for cancer patients and their loved ones throughout the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT) area.

Out with the old, in with the new

HELLO 2019 – and Ark Cancer Centre Charity is hoping that supporters will carry the spirit of out with the old, in with the new into this last year of the decade to help the £5million fundraising campaign reach another milestone.

Ark is urging local people to make a resolution to recycle unwanted clothes and shoes in January in one of the charity's many branded recycling banks that are dotted in and around the Basingstoke area.

Thanks for your support in 2018

2018 is the year that Ark Cancer Centre Charity passed the £2million milestone on the journey towards the £5m goal.

Plans to locate the new cancer treatment centre on the Basingstoke hospital site are moving forward, and 2019 will hopefully be a year of significant progress on this front.
