Cancer is an awful disease that touches far too many lives.

On Sunday 4th June Rachel Lester, one of the receptionist staff at Haddenham Medical Centre, will be participating in a Tandem Skydive and falling 10,000 feet to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK — a cause close to her heart having lost her own dad to the disease at the age of 67, when retirement was cruelly snatched away from him.

By combining a lifelong ambition to skydive in honour of her Dad with raising funds for Bowel Cancer UK, Rachel hopes to help prevent further lives being taking away too soon. It is hoped that fundraising will help to save and prolong lives for all those who are touched by this awful disease and allow them a future which they can enjoy with their children and their children's children and take pleasure in seeing them grow up.

Bowel Cancer Awareness
On the Wednesday 24th May the surgery in Haddenham will be holding a 'Drop-In' Bowel Cancer Awareness morning between 10.00am and 12.30pm when there will be a speaker available to answer any questions you may have and give you information and advice about this disease — a subject on which many people are reluctant to seek advice.

Tea, coffee and cake will also be on hand and a raffle will be held to raise further funds.

If you are unable to attend but would still like to contribute to Rachel's fundraising efforts, please go to www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Rachel-Lester2

Cheque donations are also greatly appreciated (payable to: Bowel Cancer UK).

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving — they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.
