Family raises £2,345 at 40tude Charity Fundraising Evening - September 2013

The family of Les Twigger, who died in June 2013 of colon cancer, held a fundraising and awareness raising evening in his memory on the 13th September 2013 and raised a magnificent £2,345 for 40tude curing colon cancer.  Jenny Haywood and her children - Caron, Sarah, Mark and Marie - organised a night of musical entertainment performed by local Nuneaton artists as well as an auction and a raffle.  40tude has donated 100% of the proceeds to St Mark’s Hospital Foundation for their vital work into funding bowel cancer projects.  The evening also proved to be a great success from an awareness-raising perspective and two families have gone in for screening as a direct result of the efforts of the family - who are all too aware of how crucial it is to look out for symptoms and get in for screening early.  You can find more valuable information by visiting: www.stmarksfoundation.org/
