Thank you to Worldham Golf Club

A massive thank you to Worldham Golf Club, Alton, and Gary Tarling, their Captain, for supporting Cancer Research UK and the Brittle Bone Society as the charities for 2015. 

Gary is seen at a special event at the club on Sunday 28th February with Liz Hind, Ladies Captain, and Sean Kennedy, Seniors Captain, presenting the magnificent cheque for £3,994 to Ruth Holden, Haslemere Local Committee Chairman and Area Fundraising Organiser for Cancer Research UK, Hayley Callacher. 

The club and its members raised a fantastic amount and it sounded as if they had fun doing it.  Thank you for making us so welcome; it was a pleasure to meet you all.

Grayshott Quiz for SU2C

We’ve received the final results for the 2012 Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) fund raising event, focused round a telethon on 19th October.

Grayshott Social Club kindly hosted a Nicky Butt super quiz on 3rd November, which raised a fantastic £672.50 towards the national total of a staggering £8,011,722.62 - nearly twice the previous record for a fundraising show on UK commercial television!

More importantly, we’ve raised enough money to fund up to 15 new clinical trials, each of which could result in a life-saving new test or treatment for cancer.  

We’d like to say a very big thank you to all who helped Grayshott to play its part in this wonderful effort – organisers Sally Smith, Nicky Butt and Ruth Holden, Frankie’s Fish and Chips for the meal on the evening, and all of the local businesses that contributed to the raffle (list below).  Great job everyone – thank you!

Stand Up To Cancer - October 2012 - Channel 4

Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK are joining forces to launch ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ in the UK. Television, music and film stars will come together in October in a new national fundraising event to galvanise the public in the fight against cancer.

Here's a link to the Stand Up To Cancer web site

Simon Chapman Iron Man - fundraising link

Haslemere Herald dated 24th August has article on page 5 about Simon Chapman who is raising funds for Cancer Research UK and the Bobby Moore Foundation for Bowel Cancer.  He was inspired to do this because his mother Christine, who still lives in Haslemere, was hit by the disease three years ago.

At the time of writing, he's raised £4,242.50 against a target of £2,500.  The donations page is still open, but there's an error on the web link quoted in the paper.  It misses the letters UK from the address, and so the link fails.  Simon's fundraising page is at the following correct address:
