Joyce Shacklock

This month’s Fundraisers of the Month are the fantastic Joyce and John Shacklock from Buxton who have hit their fundraising target of £250,000 for The Christie!

Joyce and John run the fund ‘Daniel’s Light’ in memory of their son, Daniel, who died 24 years ago, aged 19 from leukaemia. To reach this phenomenal amount, the group have held coffee mornings, day trips on the Judith Mary barge, hand bell ringing, Disco’s Bingo Nights and even a duck race.

Joyce said: "As always, we are incredibly grateful to everyone who continues to support us and keeps Daniel's name alive and special thanks go to all the ladies who help out at our coffee mornings. It's amazing that we have now reached our quarter of a million pounds' target."

We want to say a huge thank you to Joyce and John for their support and a massive well done for reaching such a phenomenal fundraising target.
