Coping with Cancer’s 40th Anniversary

On Saturday the 26th of March we celebrated Coping with Cancer’s 40th anniversary.

We enjoyed a fun filled celebration at The Magic Hat cafe, with staff, trustees, clients and supporters all present to enjoy the live band, tombola and buffet.

We want to thank everyone who has supported us over the past 40 years and who continue to support us heading into the future

A message from Maggie our Chief Executive:

“Just to share that it was lovely contacting folk today who bought raffle tickets to let them know they had won a prize. I had one who admitted he had checked me out as he was not sure it was spam!

Thank you to all who sold the tickets, we are extremely grateful for all the support we have received.

We have raised over £2,600 from this event which has gone directly towards our delivery costs.

Thank you all so much, this year brings many challenges for us, and we need every penny we can get to continue as our NHS income is still limited because of covid.”

The highly anticipated raffle was drawn at the celebration. The first raffle ticket was drawn by our new ambassador Holly Blades who we are so excited to have on board. Then the winners took it in turns to draw the next raffle ticket out.

All videos of the raffle being drawn can be viewed below.
