Claire's Charity Walk!!

Stars Appeal logoShe may be new to the Communications Team at Rowan House, but that hasn't stopped Claire Phillips-High getting stuck-in straight away with Charity Fundraising! She has a personal reason for doing so, as Claire explains...

Stars Appeal, which is Salisbury hospital's charity, recently did an amazing job of looking after my dad who was diagnosed with kidney cancer early this year. Thanks to them he is now on the road to recovery and to say thank you I'm taking part in their charity Walk for Wards in Salisbury on June 23rd to help raise money for a much-needed new CT scanner. Please dig deep if you can. Love Claire x

Thank you.

Editor's Note: The walk is 10 kilometres long and takes place at Wilton House, home to the Stars Appeal's president, the Earl of Pembroke. The appeal aims to raise £650,000 for the new CT scanner. Here's Claire's Just Giving Page.

We also have a quick fundraising update from The Magnificent Seven! Andrew Caple reports:  " date we have raised £1,340 to date for our chosen charity CLIC Sargent." The Magnificent Seven will be tackling their 3 Peaks Challenge the same weekend as Claire undertakes her walk.

Good luck everyone - there's less than a week to go now!
