Weʼve raised £150 to Raise as much money as we can for Cheltenham Hospital's Focus Cancer Information and support Centre.
- Cheltenham, UK
- Funded on Monday, 31st December 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
All four have had cancer in the last few years and were treated (and are still being looked after) at the Gloucestershire Oncology Centre which reaches a population of over 1,000,000 people.
FOCUS aim to create a comfortable and positive environment for all staff and patients, investing in improvements to facilities in state of the art equipment and extra care over and above that provided by the NHS.
Recent donations have enabled the charity to provide portable devices for continuous pain relief, reclining chairs which give a more comfortable experience when receiving chemotherapy, sky ceiling tiles providing patients with a more relaxing and calming experience during radiotherapy treatment and pneumatic compression pumps which enable home treatment for patients suffering from Lymphoedema, reducing swelling when fluid builds up.
Thanks to the support of the local community these are just a selection of items that make a difference to cancer patient’s treatment when they visit the Gloucestershire Oncology Centre.
In classic Calendar Girl style they are stripping off on farms in and around Moreton in Marsh to make a calendar and such is the support in the farming community the Farming Females Feeling Fabulous (F4) have been joined by friends and family members, all with their own cancer connections.
The 2019 Calendar will be officially launched at the Moreton Show on 1st September where the models will be selling it personally. It will also be available from their website as well as many local shops and businesses.
The women have recruited celebrity cook, writer and TV presenter Prue Leith as their patron.
To buy a calendar or to donate to F4 go to our website www.farmingfemalesfeelingfabulous.co.uk Only £10 per calendar and every penny goes to the Focus Centre as all production costs have been covered by sponsors. Go on, buy it! It’s a great cause…”
