Our supporters have been doing some fantastic work to raise money for the centre
It’s been a busy period for many of our supporters, who got active to raise money.
Rick Wilmott and his sister Kristie took part in the Vitality 10k on Monday 2 May in memory of their dad and raised over £800. They were closely followed by Michael Martin, who took part in a 15km Tough Mudder event and has so far raised over £300.
Over the whole month of May, people got together with friends or family for our Stepping Up For Cancer walk in the countryside near Chenies Manor. Some are new to this walk, whereas others have been doing it annually for many years. The Whitehead family first took part in 2005 when Miles Whitehead was a patient at the centre and they went on to raise an incredible £33,000 in Miles’s memory. They have continued to be regular walkers and this year baby Gus joined them on the walk for the very first time!
More challenges ahead In August, Gary Sexton and his team of friends will also be taking on a Tough Mudder challenge in memory of Michael Perry. Philip Gibbs will be cycling from London
to Brighton in September, when Annie Harrington will be taking on the Chiltern 50 Challenge.
The Thames Moonlight 10 Walk is safe, fun and rewarding – with full support and great hospitality. It’s the ideal challenge to take on as a team of friends, family, or work colleagues – or join as an individual and meet others whilst seeing our magnificent capital at its best on a Friday night to remember! The Walk is on Friday 9 September, starting from 4pm and you can choose between 10 km or 10 miles. Get in touch for further details or to register.
On 6 June the sun shone and a fun day was had by all who took part in our Golf Day at Denham Golf Club. As ever, Pam Holland brought her great team of volunteers from Moor Park Golf Club and past Mayor of Hillingdon John Hensley auctioned off some fantastic prizes, helping us raise £5,000. Congratulations to Biggers Buggy Boys, who won first prize, and thanks to everyone who donated and took part to make another successful Golf Day.
We have started selling tickets for our Bridge Drive on 11 October, which is taking place at Moor Park Golf Club. For more information and details on how to book.
