Ball raises £10,000 for local medical charities
A ball to raise money to fight breast cancer that took place at the Pittville Pump Rooms raised over £10,000 in funds for two local medical charities.
Sarah Cook, Director, HR People Support Ltd was the brains behind the event, which she planned whilst recovering from breast cancer. Money raised will go to local medical charity Cobalt and FOCUS, cancer care charity based in the oncology centre, Cheltenham General Hospital who both supported Sarah throughout her diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer.
Sarah will be able to double her donation to Cobalt in December through the Charity’s involvement in The Big Give. The Big Give launches on #GivingTuesday, 3rd December from 12 noon until Tuesday 10th December. Every donation given to Cobalt through The Big Give website up to £25,000 will raise funds for two new Breast Cancer Research nurses. This means a fantastic £50,000 will be up for grabs. This has enabled Sarah to maximise the fantastic amount she has raised through her event.
Sarah said “Upon my diagnosis of breast cancer I took a long hard look at my life. I had overcome so many hurdles, cancer was the last straw. I wasn’t about to give up without a fight though. I quit my job to launch my own business and I wanted to help others. The Big Give is a fantastic way to double the return on cash raised for this wonderful charity. The breast cancer nurses will mean a fighting chance of patients getting diagnosed earlier and local women being able to take part in these essential studies”.
