Anna (7) raises £25.94 for Cancer Research UK

Just to prove that all age groups can raise funds for Cancer Research UK, we'd like to thank Anna van den Bos (7 years old) of Haslemere who raised £25.94 at her school by running a 'Guess the number of sweets' competition. She's a pupil at St Margaret's School, Midhurst and her initiative involved asking staff and pupils at her school to guess how many sweets were in a large tin.

Anna had the idea after hearing an item on the radio, and asked her Mum if she could do some fundraising for Cancer Research. Ruth Holden, chairman of the Haslemere Local Committee, went to meet her class and accept the donation during a school assembly.

Thank you and well done!

Race for Life 2009

Congratulations to (left to right) Claire Hitchcock, Linda Hampshire, Kate Mackie and Sally Smith from Grayshott, who took part in the Guildford Race for Life on 6th June 2009.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Since 1994, women of all ages and fitness levels across the UK have come together at these inspiring events.

Some take part in celebration of surviving a cancer experience. Others take part in memory of a loved one or to give hope to a cancer-free future. But all of them share a common goal: to raise money for Cancer Research UK’s pioneering work to beat cancer.

Every pound raised in sponsorship goes towards our vital work. This includes funding the work of over 4,500 scientists, doctors and nurses who are dedicated to help more people beat cancer.

Claire, Linda, Kate and Sally raised at least £700 through their pages, and they raised at least £100 more back in Grayshott. If you missed them in their amazing costumes, and would like to donate a little more, please click here (Sally's page) or here (Kate's page).
