Team AA is in top gear when it comes to fundraising for Ark

THE team at one of Basingstoke's best-known businesses have delivered a fundraising boost to Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Ark was proud and honoured to be the chosen Charity of the Year for 2019-20 by staff at the Automobile Association, in Basingstoke.

Based in the landmark Fanum House building, the local AA charity committee were the driving force who rallied colleagues to get involved in, and support, a series of fundraising events to help Ark.

The end result of their endeavours means that £13,195.80 is being added to Ark's campaign to fund and deliver supportive care and services, complementary therapies, and an enhanced environment for local cancer patients and their loved ones.

Ark Cancer Centre Charity trustee Merv Rees said: "Thank you to everyone at the Basingstoke offices of the AA for their kind and generous support.

"This wonderful donation is very welcome and much appreciated, particularly at this very challenging time for charities.

"This is a significant show of support by the AA team, and it will help Ark and our Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust colleagues to make a difference to cancer patients and their loved ones."
