Our partnership with Cheltenham Cricket Festival keeps going from strength to strength, now in our 6th year as the chosen charity for the festival we are thrilled with the support from the organisers and guests this year.
The 10 day festival raised funds enabling us to purchase two new ECG machines, one for Cheltenham and one for Gloucester Hospital. These machines aid monitoring of clinical trials for those patients undergoing treatment for leukaemia. Having a machine in each hospital will make the trials easier for both patients and nurses.
Over 70 ladies and a few gents enjoyed first rate hospitality at the LINC Ladies’ Day on Tuesday 15th July with pampering from Cavendish House, delicious cocktails and canapés on arrival, a hat fashion show by milliner Lisa Von Hallwyl and a gorgeous lunch before enjoying an afternoon of cricket and sunshine.
Teams of willing volunteers from Lloyds, Zurich and Waitrose have been helping us out this summer by promoting and joining us at The Great Pirate and Fairy fun run.
Teams from these kind organisations have provided much needed man power at our biggest event of the year, an invaluable support to a small fundraising team. Roles ranging from marshalling, cheering and registration have been taken on by enthusiastic teams from the companies as part of the corporate responsibility programmes. A fun time was had by all and the extra help really made a big difference to the event.
If your company runs a staff volunteering scheme and you would like to donate a few hours to LINC please get in touch with us to find out more about how you can help us.
Following the most beautiful Summer this year, we were a bit disappointed to wake up to a forecast of hurricane storms!! However, we braved the weather and had a wonderful morning with so much fun and laughter, the run has so far raised almost £2000.00 for LINC.
Thank you to our generous sponsors at Creed Food Service, Lakes Bathrooms, Factor 3, COOK – Bath Road, Cotswold Conveyancing and GE Aviation. Special mention and thanks to volunteers from Waitrose – Cheltenham, Zurich, Pirate Andy Connell, Fairy Sarah, Zumba lady Lucy Heath and everyone who helped out on the day. We are already looking forward to next years event!
Christmas is just around the corner!
