What we have achieved and money raised. Purchasing much needed equipment for Prof. Peter Johnson and his team. There is now a Dave Wellman Lab at the Somers Cancer Sciences Building that has been fitted out with all the equipment it needs funded by DWCT, to enable the research and progress into finding a much hoped for cure. Also, Freezers to hold biopsies whilst patients are awaiting treatment that are kept in a safe environment until the time when they can work on the samples to find the best way to approach every individuals needs as far as treatment goes. We have funded a centrifugal machine and an Ellispot reader, two amazing pieces of equipment that will help the scientists separate biological material, and cell research. Much needed processes in the research. We have helped towards the running costs of Jane Scarth House. We have purchased new computer equipment to enable the befriending centre to run more smoothly, and in late 2010, we saw the completion of the refurbishment to the complementary suites with new décor, furniture and artwork. In addition, we were able to give a new laptop and printing, scanning and fax printer to help further make the centre run more smoothly.

The Dolphin Hotel held a ball in July 2003 and raised £2,900, thanks to Kerry and Shirley. Lin Williamson held a coffee morning and her friends and family raised £175 with a further donation to Wessex Cancer Trust in memory of her lovely mum, Gwen. Mabs and Ken Sprinks have supported me since the very beginning and have continued to do so. Even for their golden Wedding Anniversary they asked for a donation to DWCT rather than having presents. A beautiful silver tea service was the very first item they donated for the auction, this raised £450 at the very first ball. Ros Hancock and her colleagues at Professional Development & Training Services H.C.C. donated on more than one occasion and rather than sending Christmas cards, the money came to us and we thank them very much. I have many, many supporters and especially since the last ball, I have had help from marathon runner Mike Wright and his wife Karen who has organised garden fairs and car boot sales and they have raised over £2,500. Mike is now training to run for us in the New Forest half marathon later in the year. Another huge supporter is Sandy Jones who owns Rhian’s Fashion House in Warsash. Sandy holds “ladies Lets Lunch” events and has raised thousands for charities over the years. Sandy and her “ladies” have raised thousands for us that has gone to help Prof Johnson and Countess Mountbatten. Thank you to her and her “ladies”.   Also a huge thank you to Diane and Martin Bellamy who cycled to raise money, and were greeted back by patron Franny Benali from their 150-mile ride and raised over £1000. Also a christmas fayre in 2012 raising again hundreds to support us. Thank you Dianne for your beautiful creations and blankets made to raise money.
