Here are some of our fundraising activities since we launched in 2004.
Annual Luncheon – 7th March, 2016
Another happy event at Fortnum & Mason with record funds raised – over £16,000 – thanks to the wonderful array of raffle and auction prizes (see link below).
Our largest group of ‘lunchers’ yet were there in support – gentlemen and ladies. Thank you all.
Annual Luncheon – 2nd March, 2015
2015 was a sensational luncheon all round. A happy, sunny and buzzing affair with record breaking results! We raised just under £14,500 net! Not least due to wonderful generosity all round – from guests, to donors, to bidders, to raffle buyers, to Fortnums.
Special thanks to Carolyn Dunster of Simply Roses for the flowers, Anya Hindmarch for her divine handbag, Organise-Us for their elegant notebook gifts for everyone (!) and beautiful handbags for our raffle and auction and so many more….
The Committee (LEFT!!) can’t wait to welcome you all again next year!
Christmas Luxury Market
London – 20th November, 2014
You can see the details of the market at Luxury Christmas Market. This was our inaugural ‘market’ and we were looked after beautifully by Tower 42 – special mention to their concierge Terry Burns who was a star! With stallholders donating 10% of their takings on the day to KLF, we were delighted to raise just over £1000.
Annual Luncheon – 3rd March, 2014
Our tried and tested formula hit the nail on the head once again with a marvellous lunch in the delectable surroundings of Fortnum & Mason. We are delighted to have raised almost £12,000 this year, our second highest sum to date – no mean feat in these climes! Thanks as always go to our most generous supporters – those who attend on the day, those who donate prizes, many more behind the scenes and of course the wonderful F&M staff. Roll on next year.
Annual Luncheon – 4th March, 2013
This graph shows the income split since 2010 across the primary luncheon activities. This year we were delighted to raise a massive net total of over £12,100. Bearing in mind we were just shy of 140 lovely ladies and generous gentlemen that is pretty impressive. We were able to donate a cheque for £10,000 to Cathy Wilson, the Interim Head of School at the Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation.
Highlights of the day included a guest appearance from Joseph Maziak, aged 7 months and a witty speech with fond memories of Katie by Joseph’s granddad, Richard Greenwood, a close family friend of Katie’s and ex England Rugby international and coach. Our auction and raffle prizes were fabulous as always and we are most grateful to those who support us year in and year out. As you can see from the graph, the raffle and auction are a vital part of our fundraising so the quality of the prizes is critical.
We’ve finally uploaded the photos from the lunch to the internet so you can take a look back at the fun we had in May. Click Here to view.
Annual Luncheon – 14th May, 2012
Katie’s 10th anniversary lunch—a tribute to a special daughter and friend.
“It is a great testament to Katie that we are here today, 10 years later to toast her, remember her and celebrate what has been achieved in her name. The fact that she can still draw a crowd speaks volumes about our friend Katie Wohlrab.”
“Katie was a vivacious, pull-no-punches kind of girl, with the chic Continental fashion style that made her really stand out (I’m talking stripey tights and RaRa skirts here). Katie’s intelligence, good humour and wit always shone through and she will always be a very fond part of my early days here in the UK.”
“Katie was a Leo. She regularly quoted the traits of her star sign as a way of explaining who she was and even for those who are horoscope sceptics, it is uncanny how well she fitted the Leo mould! As a starter, Leo’s have a zest for life and a warm spirit. They are social butterflies and people always naturally gravitate to them. This was Katie to a tee. She also had an admirable inner strength—Leos can be very independent and thrive on being in control. Ultimately Katie was a generous, loyal, fun loving and wonderfully rewarding friend who lived life to the full.”
Our tried and tested lunch formula worked wonders again, albeit in May and not February, due to refurbishment on Fortnum & Mason’s 4th Floor—the restaurant is now called The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.
A cheque for £15,000 was donated to The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing & Rehabilitation and we raised just shy of £9,500 on the day.
Our thanks go out to all our lovely ladies and the odd gentleman who come to enjoy the lunch, without whom we would be unable to fulfil our goals in the world of lymphoedema, all in Katie’s name. An equally big thanks goes to those who generously donate luxurious and coveted prizes for our raffle and auction lots. Some have donated since our inception and others are new this year, but all are invaluable.
The last two years we’ve also had the pleasure of welcoming Katie’s nieces— Hermione and Hebe (right), who have done such a wonderful job selling Pat’s beautiful notelets. Katie would have been very proud of them.
Annual Luncheon – 28th February, 2011
What a marvellous lunch we had with Suggs (of pop group Madness fame) at the helm! We filled the St. James’s Restaurant and had another extremely successful and fun time with lots of wonderful raffle and auction prizes.
Suggs was on top form, especially when it came to raffling a pair of Jeremy Clarkson’s jeans! Thank you to all the contributors of the prizes without which we wouldn’t have managed to raise a grand total of almost £10,000.
We were able to give the Royal Marsden School of Nursing a cheque for £15,000 and based on the take up of funded places in the last 12 months that may not last very long!
Jane Wigg (featured in our last newsletter) was with us to talk to us about what our funding means to her course participants. The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation work closely with Jane to offer MLD training to therapists who have already completed the existing lymphoedema module to ensure they have all the skills required to treat patients with cancer-related lymphoedema. As always it is important to ensure we all know what we are raising funds for in amongst the general merriment!
Tony McGee, fashion photographer extraordinaire gave up his time to take our official photographs and you will see what an improvement on our usual amateur efforts this is. In fact we have been able to upload the photos to our website should you wish to download any of yourself – click here!
We cannot thank you all enough in whatever guise you support us, from our longstanding lunch ladies, to our raffle and auction prize donors, to Fortnum & Mason (F&M) and our lovely flower lady Keeley of The Tropical Plant Company. F&M and Keeley generously give us such discounted prices that we can make that little bit extra for our efforts and yours!
Annual Luncheon – 22nd February, 2010
Our fifth luncheon at Fortnums was an amazing success this year. We entertained almost 160 ladies in the Fourth Floor Restaurant. The food and service was delicious as always thanks to Fortnums.
We raised a spectacular £11,200, an increase of 40% on last year which in itself was incredibly successful. Thank you to everyone for their generosity. We also handed over a cheque to The Royal Marsden for £20,000!
Once again we had stunning orchids on every table and our VIP guests included Sarah Bateson, Head of Fundraising, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, the Rt Hon. Frank Field MP, recently appointed by David Cameron to head a group looking into the state of poverty in the UK and Professor Peter Mortimer of The Royal Marsden Hospital. Professor Mortimer is a key figure in the world of lymphoedema in the UK and he gave an enlightening speech about the condition and its progress in the UK.
Our celebrity guest speaker was Jason Leonard, an English former rugby union prop forward whose record as the world’s most-capped forward still stands. As an England player, Leonard won the highest international accolades possible: Grand Slams (1991, 1992, 1995 and 2003) and the 2003 Rugby World Cup. He also won a British and Irish Lions Test series (on the 1997 tour of South Africa). He was very witty and charmed all of the ladies!
Our array of raffle prizes matched previous years in terms of luxury and desirability, as always including our star prize of an Anya Hindmarch handbag. We also expanded our Silent Auction and offered lots such as golf with Nick Dougherty, a cake a month from Catherine Weinstein of Marie Antoinette Home Made Cakes and another week’s internship with top fashion designer Maria Grachvogel. All very special! Pat even allowed Katie’s ‘Big Bear’ to be auctioned. Thank you to donors and supporters alike. We are humbled by your generosity!
Annual Luncheon – 23rd February, 2009
Our fourth luncheon at Fortnums was a delightful occasion, despite some unexpected challenges – a power cut, a fire alarm, the battery ran out on the microphone and the staff cooked the meal in semi-darkness as we were on emergency lighting in the dining room!!! A big thank you to Fortnums who coped admirably with these severe obstacles!
Thanks to everyone’s generosity we raised over £8,000, well above previous years, which is a wonderful achievement considering the credit crunch.
The room looked truly stunning with orchids on every table. Our VIP guests included Shelley Dolan, Chief Nurse and Mary Woods, Clinical Nurse Specialist Lymphoedema, from The Royal Marsden Hospital. Shelley made an inspiring speech, followed by Marcus Wohlrab, Katie’s brother who spoke to us about his forthcoming Himalayan Challenge. Pat handed over a cheque for £15,000 towards training bursaries in 2009 and we will also be sponsoring Mary in her endeavours to become a qualified practitioner so that she can include more Manual Lymph Drainage in the Royal Marsden’s programmes.
Jenny thanked Mike Fish and Emma for all their hard work in delivering this website whose launch coincided with the lunch!
The raffle was luxurious as always with some extraordinarily generous prizes, including tickets to the Masters tennis at the Albert Hall with lunch in the players’ area and a £300 voucher for Maria Grachvogel’s spring and summer collection. As always Anya Hindmarch donated one of her beautiful handbags (The Perry) and we had a number of prizes from Denmark courtesy of Katie’s old friend Becca Shaw Frandsen.
For the first time we ran a silent auction due to a number of unique and non-raffle-able prizes which included a week’s internship at top fashion designer Maria Grachvogel’s, either as a PR or a Design Assistant; a photographic portrait including makeover at top UK fashion photographer Tony McGee’s studio; tickets to a Madness concert including backstage passes and signed Austin Healey dancing shoes! Will Greenwood, our celebrity guest announced the winners and conducted a reverse auction for Austin’s shoes which resulted in lots of fun and laughter! The auction raised a magnificent £3,909 – amazing!
We were delighted to welcome Sarah Stacey, You Magazine’s Wellbeing Editor too and we hope to see some national coverage on the Fund and lymphoedema at some point later in the year.
So, a success all round, made possible by the 184 ladies (including a few gentlemen!) who supported the event so generously. We hope they all enjoyed the day as much as we did!
Annual Luncheon – 25th February, 2008
We now have a very good relationship with Fortnum & Mason which supports us in many ways with the organization of our lunch. We were lucky to have England Rugby World Champion, Will Greenwood, with us. He handed out the raffle prizes and generously hugged all the lucky winners! We presented a cheque to The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation for £10,000. Our fundraising on these occasions comes from ticket sales of which £10 per ticket goes to KLF, the raffle, donations, sales of Pat’s notelets and the table flower arrangements. We also collect sponsorship pledges for our ‘Sporting Fundraiser’ for the year. This year it was Simon Fisher in the London Marathon.
Annual Luncheon – 19th February, 2007
At this lunch, Anya Hindmarch, designer, who has been a regular supporter of KLF since its inception and who was a friend of Katie’s, pulled the raffle as well as donating a fabulous bag from her collection. Pat Wohlrab presented Sara Lister, Head of The School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation, with a cheque for £5,000. Pledges for our Sporting Fundraiser were made – Three Peaks Challenge, Phil Sadler and Dave Evans.
Annual Luncheon – 27th February, 2006
This was our first lunch at Fortnum & Mason and the first since the launch. We haven’t changed the venue since because our lunches there have been so wonderful! We were a little uncertain as to how successful it would be without the umbrella of Good Housekeeping, but we needn’t have worried. It was a huge success and on that day we presented a cheque for £5,500 to The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation. Later on in the year we gave a further £3,500 to the school and £1,000 to Denise Claughton to enable her to become a full-time lymphoedema therapist. Our guests of honour were Angela Roden from The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and Lorraine Brown, one of our scholars, who works at the Royal Hampshire Hospital in Winchester. It was poignant and appropriate because Katie was treated at this hospital shortly before she died. Pledges for our Sporting Fundraiser were made – Simon Fisher ran the Edinburgh marathon.
Launch Luncheon – Thursday, 21st October, 2004
Good Housekeeping magazine sponsored our inaugural lunch and promoted it in their October issue of that year which was dedicated to breast cancer. This event was held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge. It was a splendid affair and we were subsequently able to sponsor our first 4 nurses with a cheque for £2,000.
Pat’s coffee mornings
Pat lives in Rome and every autumn a coffee morning is organised for the Fund. To date this has been at the home of friends, one of whom has has been a great knitter of teddy bears which were sold to raise funds. At the coffee morning we also sell coffee and cakes (baked by generous ladies) as well as delicious home-made marmalade. We also take this opportunity to sell Christmas cards and notelets. On the terrace a second hand book stall is always popular where people can pick up a good bargain!
To date these coffee mornings have raised over 5,000 euros!
Jenny’s Christmas Card lunches
In November each year, Jenny holds these lunches at her home in Islington. Local friends (and some not so local!) are invited. Pat sells her Christmas cards and Tuscan lavender bags which disappear pretty quickly! On these occasions Jenny is ably assisted in the greeting, serving drinks and lunch by one or more of her Christmas ‘fairies’ Marcus Wohlrab (Katie’s brother), Rob Edge and Dan Cook. The ladies love it (and so do the men – perhaps it’s the pinnies!) A big thanks to all these friends – it’s a great way to kick off the ‘season’ and, this year, made over £1100 to boot!
2008 – London Marathon
Our marathon runners were fantastic. Simon Fisher, now teaching PE and Geography at Trinity School, in Devon, ran the London Marathon in 3 hours 26 minutes and 57 seconds. Max McGee, 12 years’ old, ran the Junior Marathon (3 miles) in 19 minutes. Simon raised £2,812 and Max raised £166 – significant funds between them! Thank you both for your time and supreme efforts.
This is Simon’s second marathon in aid of the Fund. So far he has raised almost £6000! Fantastic!
2006 – Edinburgh Marathon
Simon Fisher, then Deputy Headmaster of Hereward House School in London, ran the Edinburgh marathon for us and raised in excess of £3,000. He ran in a heat wave with a foot injury and still managed a very creditable time of 3 hours 19 minutes and came 258 out of 6,000 runners – marvellous! He had a participant running behind him for another Katie who came up to him afterwards and said the fact that Simon had Katie on his back kept him going…
Other ‘Extreme’ Challenges
Blenheim Sprint Triathlon – June 2014
KLF held a successful fund raising event entering a team “Team KLF” in the annual Blenheim Triathlon in June 2014. The team not only raised over £1500 for KLF, but finished 24th out of the 350 teams that entered – not bad for a first attempt!
Team KLF comprised James Seel, Charlie Greenway and Fran Owen, all very good friends from Sidney Sussex Cambridge days and roped in by Cathy Owen (a big KLF supporter and former patient of The Royal Marsden Hospital). Playing to their individual strengths, the threesome entered the Sprint Team Relay Event completing first a 750m swim in Blenheim Lake, followed by a 19.8 km cycle ride and finally a 5.7 km run.
James started the team off decked out in his wet suit and green swim cap, keeping to the outside of the pack and completing a phenomenally “super speedy” swim in 10 mins 50 secs, easily being one of the first out of the water. Next up was Charlie, leaping onto his bicycle with his 6’7″ frame and setting off for two laps around the park grounds, with one “mega hill” thrown in (on each lap) for good measure. Charlie looked quite comfortable as he powered past his cheering KLF fans and belted out his two laps in a superb 41 mins. The last leg was up to Fran who, after completing the London Marathon in April, made her 5.7 k run look like a sprint! Again looking quite relaxed after first lap, she sprinted to the finish in 24 mins. James and Charlie joined her for the final 100 yards and crossed the line together in total team time of 1hr 20mins and 23 seconds (including changeover times). Team KLF 2014 has indeed set the bar high!
Cycletta – time for the girls to have a go
In past years, funds have been raised for Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund (KLF) by many an intrepid supporter – marathons have been run, three peaks have been climbed, Everest Base Camp has been reached and an endurance race in the Namibia Desert has been survived. 2011 it was up to the girls!! We took part in Cycletta South (see www.cycletta.co.uk) – a 40km road ‘race’ starting and ending at Whipsnade Zoo on Sunday 11th September.
The KLF-Girls team consisted of Emma Maziak, Philly Jones, Alicia Leaf and Sophie Clarke, looking cheery after the race (below – Philly, Alicia, Sophie, Emma)! We were absolutely delighted to ride in, in positions 222-225 out of 634 riders with a time of 2 hrs, 6 mins – GO GIRLS!!! I (Emma) was the weak link and the other three girls could have gone much more quickly without me slowing them down but we all had fun and I was delighted and surprised to have no problems walking the day after!
So far we’ve raised 84% of our £2000 target so it would be fabulous if you would click on:
http://www.justgiving.com/KLF-Cycletta to sponsor us if you haven’t already – thanks.
The Desert Dash
Our ‘extreme’ fund raiser for 2010 was the incredible ‘Desert Dash’. Ian MacLeod and Barry Cooper cycled 340km across the Namib Desert on 17th/18th December 2010 and raised an amazing £2650. Ian and Barry came 4th overall across all 2-man team categories and although it was rather windy and a tough ride they managed to win the Veteran Men category finishing at 4.50am in the dark!!
Background to the race: This is a 24 hour fight between human and nature, body and mind. The route reaches levels of 2000m above sea level and navigates sharp twists and turns. At one stage, the descent drops 700m in only 10km!
The race is made more difficult by the cold and darkness of moonless nights and in the day, temperatures soar up to 50 degrees celsius. On the dirt roads there are also hazards of animals, snakes, inability to see the rocks, sand (dry river crossings) and there is usually a howling headwind blowing! See www.desertdashnamibia.com
Our hardy (mad?) cyclists were:
Ian Macleod – Australian; UNICEF Country Director in Namibia; only started mountain biking in mid 2008; run over a dozen marathons and ultramarathons (!); married to Clare with 2 sons (Callan and Liam); mid 40s-ish…
Barry Cooper – British; ex-IT Director now focusing on family and mountain biking in Namibia; Top 4 ranked in multiple mountainbiking championships and 2 day marathons; married to Natasha with 3 children (Jared, Talia & Mara); not yet 40…. oh and enjoys G&Ts.
Himalayan Challenge – 2009
Marcus, Katie’s brother, has climbed the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp – our major sporting fundraiser for 2009! He has raised over £4,000. Thank you to all of those who have supported his endeavours with pledges and donations. Read his amazing trip diary and see some wonderful photos.
The Three Peaks – 2007
Phil Sadler (Princes Trust) and David Evans (TYF Adventures), both in Pembrokeshire, completed the Three Peaks Challenge during the weekend of 1st and 2nd September 2007. Weather was generally shocking with very little visibility on Snowdon and Scafell Pike. They started at 4am Saturday, in the dark, up Snowdon and came off Ben Nevis at about 4.30pm on the Sunday. They completed the climbing and descents in just 17 hours (excluding the driving) and they raised over £2,500.
Pat’s Beautiful Cards & Notelets
Pat’s description of her cards: Katie and I had very similar tastes in art and we enjoyed the same pictures at exhibitions. I used to paint on porcelain and Katie would sometimes commission me to do something for a friend. It was through these experiences that I thought I would like to paint something for her. It is also something concrete that I can do for her. I am very much aware that Christmas cards are a feature of charity fundraising and so I began to design them. It has been a great solace to me to do this and I have, here in Rome where I live, a wonderful printer who is very sensitive to my needs for the ‘precise colours’ and also uses high quality paper and envelopes. The other factor has been communication. Cards are sent and people can see the name and purpose of the charity and so awareness spreads. I have also branched out into notelets (some with recipes if the picture is a herb) which we sell at our annual fundraising lunch.
Please support the fund by purchasing our Notelets and Christmas Cards, designed and painted by Katie’s Mum Pat with love and care…visit our Shop page.
Susan Hindmarch and her friends devised “Katie’s Books”. Fundraisers were asked to take a book and raise £60 by donations of £10, £5 or £1. Donors were asked to sign the book as a record of their support. These books have raised an astonishing £6,600!
Eve Perry’s Stall for Katie’s Fund
(St James’ School for Girls, Christmas Market 2009) “When I heard about Katie’s Fund and its amazing work I really wanted to find a way to help.
I had seen the beautiful Christmas cards that Pat Wohlrab designs every year and thought that it would be a good idea to sell them at my school’s Christmas Market.
I was the first child to apply for a stall at the fair (I’m 13) and mine was the only charity stall. The organisers wanted to know what I would be selling because they hire the stalls to lots of different people and didn’t want me to sell the same things as the others. I thought that they would be more likely to give me the stall if, as well as having the lovely cards, I had made some things myself, so I told them that I would have ‘home-made crafts’ too and they agreed to let me have a stall.
I asked my Mum and Granny if they would help me make some cute cat-shaped lavender bags based on a pattern in a friend’s book. Lots of people are keen on cats and I thought that if I used recycled fabric, I could sell the cats at a price that children as well as adults could afford. We started to make them a month before the fair. I made a list of everything I needed for the stall and made price labels the weekend before, so that I was sure not to have forgotten anything.
I set the stall up carefully so that visitors could see all the card designs, as well as the cats and the other lovely Italian lavender bags that Pat gave us to sell. I put leaflets about the Fund everywhere so that everyone understood what the stall was for. Lots of my friends helped on the stall and I made sure that they had read the leaflet about the Fund first.
It was really busy! We sold lots of cards and Italian lavender bags. The cats all went within the first hour. Another time I would have definitely made more.
It was a great privilege to be trusted to represent Katie’s Fund.
We raised £300 and hope that we have managed to help the Fund a little. It was great fun too! I would definitely do it again. If other children wanted to do something similar I think it would be a great!”
Danbury Bell Ringers
Two events in 2010 and 2011 raised a total of £500 (£200 and £300 respectively) so we are most grateful to The Danbury Bell Ringers for choosing us as the beneficiary for their fundraising!! They practice and perform the ringing of church bells, both tower and occasionally hand bells.
Thorndon Park Golf Club, Essex
A big thanks to a new fundraiser in 2009 – Carole Bradford, Lady Captain of Thorndon Park Golf Club in Essex. She and her ladies have raised an amazing £986 at three events: the Ladies’ Spring Meeting, the Ladies’ Open Meeting and a bridge afternoon with tea.
Will Greenwood’s Testimonial Year
Will Greenwood, England Rugby World Cup Winner and Sky Sports presenter, graced our luncheon in 2008 and very kindly presented our raffle prizes. Since then, Will has donated £4,000 from his Testimonial Year, which ran throughout 2007. The year was a big success with events ranging from a Boogie Wonderland ball, Rugby World Cup dinners, celebrity golf and celebrity cricket days and business breakfasts hosted by Sir Clive Woodward and Alastair Campbell. Will’s three main beneficiary charities were: Tommy’s Baby Charity, the PRA Benevolent Fund and Macmillan Cancer Support.
A star in every way – a big thank you to Will. www.willgreenwood.co.uk
Will Hindmarch Best of the Best
Thanks very much to another William – Hindmarch for a wonderful donation of £2000 in November 2008 from his company www.bestofthebest.co.uk.
A large well-known accounting firm became our first generous corporate sponsor beginning with a donation of £600 and then £3,500 to fund The Royal Marsden National Study Day on Lymphoedema which took place on Monday, 16th July 2007, furthering the knowledge of using Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) in the treatment of lymphoedema. At the event, Pat Wohlrab made a presentation on the work of Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund to 80 participants ranging from nurses to therapists and physiotherapists, from hospitals all over the UK. Interestingly we learned that lymphoedema can also occur in non-cancer patients. The day included a debate titled: “In today’s NHS, should manual lymphatic drainage be available to all patients with lymphoedema?” Other aspects of lymphoedema management were discussed.
Donations In Kind
A big THANK YOU to ALL.
An enormous thank you goes to Mike Fish, Shoal Computer Solutions who has dedicated a significant amount of time and thought to designing and delivering this wonderful website!
Raffle prize organisers and donors
From the very first lunch we have had some incredibly generous donors. In particular, Anya Hindmarch, who was a very good friend of Katie’s and she has supported the Fund with a fantastic handbag at every lunch to date! Maria Grachvogel has also been a great supporter with beautiful clothes and this year an internship for our Silent Auction! See the links page to see some of our other donors.
Particular mention must go to Soren and Fru Tholstrup who have been instrumental in coordinating raffle prizes for the lunch for many years. The quality of prizes is extraordinary!
Since 2009, our lunch tables have been beautifully decorated with flowers from The Tropical Plant Company of Columbia Road, at a greatly reduced price. At the lunches, we provide envelopes on the tables for guests to buy the flowers and take them home so we benefit from low prices AND from donations. Keeley who owns the company also donates a large plant for our raffle each year!
Fiona Spooner coordinated the table flowers in 2008, which were very kindly arranged and donated by Adam Garrett of Devine Flowers, Cookham.
In 2006 and 2007, Fiona Cartwright not only arranged the flowers but donated them as well!
Sterling Press, www.sterlingsolutions.co.uk, has given us great rates for the last two years for formatting and printing our newsletter. They even posted them out for free in 2007!
From stationery to printing to postage – Maziak Compressor Services Ltd – www.maziak.co.uk have been generous supporters for many years. For the last three years they have paid for the printing and posting of our newsletters at a cost of around £500 per year.
