On the 18 October 2018 Jennifer, Rachel and Maggie from our team hosted a table at “A Night At The Races” organised by Mesothelioma UK and held at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
The event was held as a fundraiser the evening before Mesothelioma UK’s annual patient and carer day.
We were delighted to be joined by Professor Michael Peake, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Mesothelioma UK, as well as Mesothelioma UK clinical nurse specialists Lorraine Creech, Anne Moylan and Joanne Hargraves.
It was a brilliantly organised evening and a great opportunity to speak to a diverse number of people actively involved in and passionate about Mesothelioma UK.
We were delighted to support the event by buying a table and sponsoring the winners’ enclosure. We also sponsored a horse in each race which were appropriately given gin themed names including Hurdling Hendrick and Galloping Gordon and we sponsored the first race – The Gindependence Day Stakes!
The evening was made extra special as we were presented with Mesothelioma UK’s first ever award for Corporate Donor of the Year.
Maggie Powell said:
“It was a brilliant evening which gave us the chance to catch up with the Mesothelioma UK team whilst raising lots of money for the charity. To be presented with the Corporate Donor award was a true accolade and reflects our ongoing commitment to support Mesothelioma UK in the wonderful work they do. The charity is going from strength to strength and we are genuinely happy to help them in any way we can.”
