We are completely overwhelmed by the phenomenal number of people who have willingly contributed to The Rosemary Appeal, either by making an individual contribution or by organising and taking part in a fundraising activity. We can’t begin tell you the impact that all of this will have on the total money raised. Because of your help, cancer patients across West Berkshire will soon experience a much more pleasant and convenient place to receive treatment.
In case you’ve missed out, we thought we’d give you all a little run down of some of the exciting fundraising events and activities, which have taken places over the last 6 months or so.
A handful of examples include the Quiz night held by the lovely people of Burghclere at the village hall, the Bayer 10K race completed by the team from MAXX design and the Samworth Challenge completed by the awesome guys from English Provender, involving a 10-hour grueling challenge of mountain hiking, cycling and canoeing in the Lake District.
Some more examples include the 24-hour cycle challenge organised by our corporate sponsors Jones Robinson, raising close to £3000 for the appeal, and in June the team from Newbury round table’s took to the wheels of an old banger, driving all the way from Newbury to Monte Carlo.
And that’s not forgetting the Chieveley Misguided Peakers who completed the 3 Peaks Challenge in June, battling all types of weather conditions or the awesome Tom Ball for completing the San Diego marathon in an impressive 4 hours 18 minutes.
Just this month, a few examples of activities that have taken place include the cake sale and games evening, held by the 1st Kennet Vale Rainbows, The St Bartholomew’s School Fete run and the performance by the Garston Gallopers in Newbury town centre.
And let’s not forget the dozens of individual donations made through the likes of Just Giving and Virgin, every contribution helps, no matter how big or small!
These are just a few examples of the amazing things that have been going on to raise money for the appeal, stay tuned for more examples of great fundraising work expected to take place in the coming months.
