The colorectal and peritoneal oncology centre would like to say a huge thank you to Christie supporter and former patient Rebecca Hind. Rebecca raised £8,625 for the colorectal and peritoneal oncology centre through a fundraising event earlier this year.
Rebecca’s local triathlon club in Cumbria arranged a fantastic swimathon in early March. Over 100 swimmers took part, swimming their hearts out, eating cake and buying raffle tickets. In total, they swam over 130km!
As well as this, Rebecca’s employer arranged an auction for some concert tickets. Her sister is also planning to run a half marathon when this is rescheduled after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rebecca was inspired by Steve Prescott’s legacy and decided to help raise money for The Christie after receiving such great care and support while she was being treated by the colorectal and peritoneal oncology centre.
