Story

We as a group was deciding what to do for our project and was coming up with ideas we could put on that could involve all three of our company’s. As we all four of us work for 3 different company’s I come up with an idea of supporting the local hospice at Maidstone Kent. As a group we discussed the reasons for doing this.

I explained why I had suggested this idea and I and my team at Brown brothers Maidstone are doing the race for life in support of cancer research. The reason we are doing this is in support of a colleague and a very close friend I have personally known for over 20 years. Nigel has stage four pancreatic cancer and he has been told they can’t operate as the tumour is too big for the doctors to operate as it is situated on the nerve cluster and because of this it is too dangerous for Nigel. They have advised Nigel he has 1 year to 5. They are giving Nigel chemo to help prolong the cancer but as of yet the tumour hasn’t shrunk and in fact it has grown. I wanted to do something to support Nigel and as the heart of Kent hospice are supporting Nigel during his battle with cancer. I thought it would be a great idea if as a group we could incorporate our project into supporting the hospice.

We aim to raise as much money as we can to do this we aim to hold a charity event on the August 18th which is a Saturday. We are proposing to charge a minimum of £5.00 per person to attend the event and are arranging a raffle and other events. I have managed to secure a band for the event and even have the Canterbury WI making cakes for us. My daughters have designed a purple box and have made a loom band bracelet in the design of the pancreatic cancer symbol to sell at the event. Also the group came up with an idea of a banner and getting everyone who attends to make a donation to have their hand print on the banner and sign it for Nigel.
