World Cancer, 4th February 2019

Unity bands are available to buy at Grayshott Pottery and Grayshott Social Club. Volunteers will also be collecting this Saturday and Sunday at Tesco’s in Weyhill. Cancer Research UK’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. 

In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive. 

Our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years. 

But we can’t achieve our mission alone. We rely on our dedicated scientists, doctors and nurses, and the generosity of our supporters across the UK. With your help, we can beat cancer sooner. Thank you for your support

Thank you...

... to our collectors and supporters who helped us raise another £818.35 for the cause at Tesco in Haslemere on 29th - 30th April.

We'll be doing some more collections next month, in central Haslemere on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th June, and in Grayshott on Friday 23rd.

We will be at Grayshott's Fair in the Square on Saturday 13th May, 10a.m. to 1 p.m.  This is a community event to promote the voluntary groups and clubs in Grayshott, and we'll be looking for more volunteers to help with our fund raising activities.

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!
