This annual event has been running for the past ten years and raised a magnificent sum of £42,000 for the Sussex Cancer Fund. The event is in memory of Stuart Cattaneo, one of the founding partners of Stuart & Partners and is organized by Penny Cattaneo. This worthy cause is very close to our hearts.
We are encouraging everyone we know to support us in helping raise money for this amazing charity which helps local people to be treated and cared for.
The funds we have raised to date have been used to purchase vital equipment that is not provided by the NHS such as various items and equipment for the mould room, the radiotherapy unit and the outside space at the new chemotherapy unit at Haywards Heath.
This year, in discussion with the Sussex Cancer Fund they would like us to assist in the purchase of some or all of the following items. This, of course, will depend on the amount we raise.
• Chemotherapy chairs for the chemotherapy unit at the Princess Royal
• Quiet room make over for the cancer ward at Brighton
• Pager system for chemotherapy and radiotherapy waiting rooms
• Patient telephone handset for the cancer ward at Brighton
As stated above, these items would not be purchased through the NHS as they would be classed as low priority but to the patients and their carers it will be of immeasurable help at a very difficult time in their lives.
Please help us make this another huge fund-raising event by helping sponsor the day.
