Neil's Weekly Blog! #11

on Friday, 15 May 2015.

Good afternoon, I'm just back at our Slynedales Centre after attending the North West  Bereavement Forum at St Catherine’s Hospice in Preston. A useful forum, especially given the aspirations we have for our children’s and young person’s services in the future.

Star Walk 17We've all been recovering this week following our  smashing StarWalk  event last Saturday - a  huge thanks to everyone involved.  My team all did the 15k, even Becky, my neighbours 10 year old (pictured right) She did so well given her age.! We have received lots of really fantastic feedback about the event which has already raised a fantastic amount of money for CancerCare!

I also had the pleasure of attending the  first meeting of the Lancaster Sing your Heart out Choir that we are supporting.  I wish the group well, I am sure they will go from strength to strength. One of the attendees was a lady who first came to CancerCare 30 years ago and is coming to us again because of a re-occurrence of cancer - she was so pleased that we still existed

I also picked up a cheque for £200 from the Bay Prostate Group on Tuesday evening following their fundraising dinner last month. Such an energetic and lively group, always a pleasure to pop into their meetings!

Have a lovely weekend, Neil :)
