Fundraiser - Blues bop & buffet
Saturday 03 August 2019

This is a Charity fundraising event, close to two of our member’s hearts.

The money raised will go to the Addenbrooke's Paediatric Oncology Research Fund

and why? - Well, just before Christmas 2017, following a couple of weeks of illness with what appeared to be a winter bug (tummy ache, loss of appetite, nausea), Dan was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma and Leukaemia. He was six years old at the time.

Burkitt’s is a particularly aggressive and fast-growing cancer, so Dan’s illness was already stage 4, advanced and widespread. As a result, he was immediately admitted as an inpatient at Addenbrooke’s and began an intensive course of chemotherapy. Over the following months, our time was largely spent in Addenbrooke’s and Ipswich Hospitals. Dan completed his treatment in May 2018, and life is now very much back to normal for him. 

The Paediatric Oncology Research Fund is close to our hearts because it supports the work of the consultants who treated Dan. We know that some of the protocols used on him were being trialled just months before his diagnosis, so we are extremely grateful for the fundraising that happened before us, and it’s lovely to think that money raised by the Sailing Club will help families affected by cancer in the future. 

Buffet at 8pm followed by The Blooze Brother’s Band to bop the night away.

£10 per person


Please book by no later than Sunday 28th July 2019
