3D Active Event Report

CANCER PREVENTION FORTNIGHT


 


3D ACTIVE EVENT REPORT


On the 16th of November, CANCERactive organised the ‘3D Active Event’ to raise awareness for Cancer Prevention fortnight. They provided Alcoholic and non-alcoholic smoothies with no artificial colourings or sweeteners. All the Canapés were made with key anti cancer ingredients and the goody bags that were given out had no toxic items in them; the party was also non-smoking.


CANCERactive gave a short speech about their aims for the next year and provided the party with some shocking statistics to think about and to take action on.  Catherine Woollams the founder of CANCERactive believed “CANCERactive brings all this crucial information to people; allowing them to make more informed choices and improve their chances of beating this terrible disease”.  The charity brings this information to cancer sufferers and their loved ones in a variety of ways, such as the website  and the popular magazine icon (integrated cancer and oncology news) which is distributed free to almost 300 hospitals and cancer centres throughout the country.


Lindsey Fealey, Chief Executive of CANCERactive, said: ‘this event was organised by Georgina Woollams, in memory of her sister, Catherine, and provided us with a hugely successful evening.  We were able to raise funds for the charity and also to introduce CANCERactive and its aims to a whole new audience.  Georgie had networked furiously with all her contacts and, as a result, the club was full with over 400 people, including celebrities such as Richard Arnold of GMTV, the designer Julien Macdonald (who so graciously donated a £4,000 gown to our auction), the EastEnders actors Ray Panthaki and Brooke Kinsella, the DJ David (Kid) Jensen (who is one of our Patrons) and Rick Parfitt of Status Quo.  I know that Catherine would be so proud of her sister for pulling this amazing event together.”


The charity auction which was held during the Active Event raised £3,500 for CANCERactive.  Richard Arnold placed the winning bid of £800 for Ride VIP’s Bespoke Chauffer service, which will provide him a Bentley Flying Spur for the day, and an England rugby shirt, signed by Will Carling, fetched a further £800.

“The active Event was organised to educate people about the choices available to us all.  If just one person comes away from this Awareness Event and knows what alternative help there is out there then, as Catherine’s sister, I have done my job! “
