Wessex Cancer Trust believes that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it. Every year around 23,000 people are diagnosed with cancer within the Wessex region. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family. Wessex Cancer Trust helps and supports anyone affected by cancer regardless of age, gender or type of cancer.
Maria Tidy from Wessex Cancer said: “ I’d like to say a massive thank you to Ferndown Business Network for their donation to Wessex Cancer Trust Crisis Appeal. We really are truly grateful for your help and support.”
Richard Morris, Ferndown Business Network Chairman and owner of Signs Express Bournemouth said: “We are delighted to continually support Wessex Cancer Trust. Wessex Cancer Trust and specifically Maria Tidy from the charity is a major reason FBN is so successful. As such we are always looking for new ways to support the charity and its fundraising initiatives including our recently announced new donation of £1 per member per month.”
The next time FBN will be supporting Wessex Cancer Trust is at their big fundraising event at Castlepoint on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th January. Wessex Cancer Trust needs to raise £600,000 by the end of January 2020 or they risk losing their support centres. So they are asking you to save your £1 coins over the next couple of weeks and bring them to Castlepoint Shopping Park on Saturday 25th or Sunday 26th January to add to their “Line of Gold”. If they can fill the line from Asda to Sainsburys in one day they could raise £22,500 and they are going to try to do it twice.
