Thank you for fundraising for HCCN during April, May and June 2016

Conference April 2016

…was, as ever, an excellent and informative day. A true partnership between the nursing service who design the day, the charity who fund the day and the Racecourse whose support enables us to use their excellent facilities. Note for your diary – our next conference takes place on 2nd Nov 2016. Booking is already open.

The charity always has a short input on the day and as a result of everyone’s generosity we managed to raffle our chocolate shoe donated by Lesley Howe, a Marsden Cancer Cookbook and plants which had been generously donated by Jill Tyak for over £150!!!!! Thank you everybody.

Balloon Race Winner

We also sold tickets for our annual balloon race and have a photo of the winner to show you. It’s the man not the monkey! Now we selected this photo because two seconds later, after his wife said she was having his prize, he didn’t look quite this happy.  We don’t have a photo of the winner of second place but he will be receiving his ticket for a free glider ride on the 5th August.

We do have other tickets to sell for this event, which at £50 a ticket, a saving of £10, will make excellent gifts if you’re looking for something a bit different for that person who has everything.

Thank you to Charlie & Chloe

Then we say thank you to Charlie & Chloe Jeremy the niece & nephew of Michelle & Paul Askew and Samantha Bymoth who was Michelle’s cousin. They have raised so much money for HCCN in memory of Michelle. You can see them here handing a cheque to Mandy but they raised even more through Justgiving. Thank you all for your generous support.



Thank you to Grafham Beer Festival for supporting us for the second year by allowing us to benefit from the sale of raffle tickets and for the terrific local ales they host and sell.

Thank you to Steve Foreman who has very generously contributed his birthday money to help us. You all know his wife Marion who works tirelessly to support people seeking to regain their fitness. Thank you again and we hope you enjoyed your birthday celebrations.


Thank you to those local businesses who host our collection pots your ongoing support is much appreciated. During this period we have had donations via Frosts Garden Centre at Brampton, The Dragoon Pub and Budgens in Kimbolton. Our grateful thanks go to you and your generous customers.


Thank you to the men of Hargrave Village who prepared and cooked a meal in order to make a donation in memory of their friend John Priest.


Thank you to everyone who has opened a Justgiving page in order to help HCCN. We do appreciate your efforts.
