A Colourful Thank You!!

A Colourful Thank You!!

Caption: A colourful start to this year’s Dash!

Local charity Phyllis Tuckwell would like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported its annual 5k fun run Dash of Colour, which took place on Saturday 2nd September at Frimley Lodge Park. The event was a huge success and by the end of the run those manning the paint stations had done a fantastic job of covering everybody in a rainbow of colours, symbolising the colour which Phyllis Tuckwell brings to the lives of its patients and their families.

“We would like to thank everyone who came along to join in the run and raise money, and all those who sponsored them and cheered them on,” said Gemma Craig, Events Fundraising Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell. “We would also like to thank our headline sponsors Cane Adam and Morrisons Solicitors, along with our other (colour station) sponsors Barons Farnborough, Branston Adams, projectfive and Red Mist Leisure, whose support is very much appreciated. Since it was launched in 2014, Dash of Colour has raised over £194,000 for Phyllis Tuckwell, and this year looks set to continue that trend, as we are hoping to hit our target of £65,000.”

This money will all go towards funding the vital medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support which Phyllis Tuckwell provides for over 250 patients, relatives and carers in West Surrey and North East Hampshire every day. Its staff and volunteers offer expert advice on pain relief, help patients retain their independence, and teach techniques to ease anxiety – and they also support relatives and carers too, as they understand that a terminal illness affects not only the patient, but the whole family. However, as the NHS/Government only covers 20% of Phyllis Tuckwell’s costs, it has to raise over £20,000 a day to be able to offer all these services, which is why fundraising events such as Dash are so important.
