Young people right across the UK are supported by the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. That means someone local to you will have benefitted from a trip.
Have you ever thought about nominating the Trust as your Charity of the Year? Whether in the workplace, at your local club or community group you and your friends or colleagues can do something immeasurable to help more young people rebuild their lives after cancer.
Jenny was delighted when the Trust was voted her choir’s charity of the year for 2019.
With over 100 members, the Amber Valley Voices Community Choir felt it had the potential to raise funds for charities at their major concerts throughout the year.
Jenny’s son Tom – who recently told us what he is up to now! – sailed with the Trust in the past, and choir members had heard about the benefits of rebuilding confidence after cancer.
“As a family, we have been thrilled to see our son Tom grow in confidence from his experiences with the Trust, and the lovely friendships which he has made as he recovered from cancer.
“And of course, Dame Ellen MacArthur was a local Derbyshire lass. One of our own!”
At their events, the choir hosts raffles and takes collections for their selected charities, picked from a list of about 10 nominees.
Jenny says she was “thrilled when the Trust was voted to be a charity of the year” and has loved singing in the choir since its first concerts.
Thanks are also in order for Chichester Golf Club ladies section for having the Trust as their charity of the year too!
They kicked their support off at the end of 2018 with a bottle raffle and a friendly competition between Dot’s Dollies and the Hillbillies on their jungle adventure golf course.
At the start of November, they donated over £3,000 after a year of amazing donations and events.
Having a charity of the year is a highly effective way of supporting causes you believe in, and we’re thankful for the Chichester Golf Club ladies section and Amber Valley Voice Community Choir’s support in 2019!
