Woolner, Chairman of Macmillan Cancer Relief's Chiswick Committee,
handed a cheque for £12,000 to Macmillan's local Fundraising
Manager, Cecilia Amies, at the Committee's AGM held in March this
year. This money was the majority of the proceeds from events
organised by the Committee during 2003
aims of the Committee are twofold: To raise funds for, and to
raise awareness of, the vital work of Macmillan, which seeks to
provide cancer patients and their families with the best possible
information, treatment and support from the moment of diagnosis
onwards. New services being provided this year in West London
include a specialist Macmillan chemotherapy nurse at the West
Middlesex Hospital NHS Trust and a Macmillan lung cancer nurse
at St Mary's Hospital Paddington.
from annual events and collections, such as the World's Biggest
Coffee Morning, the Committee had organised and catered for two
Tennis Tournaments (in the spring and autumn), a biannual Garden
Party, a Supper Quiz and an Indian Soiree.
events could not have taken place without the generosity of Hartswood
Lawn Tennis Club, who kindly loaned the club facilities at no
charge, a Bedford Park family who allowed the Committee to invade
their beautiful garden on a not too warm June evening, with champagne
kindly donated by Derek Fletcher of Fletchers, estate agents of
Turnham Green Terrace.
Cancer Relief's Chiswick Committee would like to be able to hand
over a similar sized cheque next March through the following programme
19 Spring Tennis Tournament at Hartswood Lawn Tennis Club
20 Informal Recital and Garden Party at St Paul's School, Barnes
15 Autumn Tennis Tournament
23 Mexican Evening at the Parish Hall, St Michael and All Angels,
21 Concert by 'Chiswick Baroque' at St Michael and All Angels.
events are designed to give pleasure to supporters, and invariably
involve the whole committee in providing a wide selection of refreshments.
Tennis comes with lunch, whilst our concerts and garden parties
are accompanied by an array of delicious canapés.
