Charity Auction at the Rock Sailing & Waterski Club
On the 25th June 2020 Tracey Coombs is hosting a Charity Auction at the Rock Sailing & Waterski Club
Tracy is gathering some truly amazing prizes for it which include:
- A painting by Nicholas St John Rosse
- A painting by Jethro Jackson
- A vase by Jacky Hall
- A case of red wine from Sting’s vineyard in Italy
- A voucher from The Dinningroom
- A week accommodation sleeping 6/8 out of season at Chy and Fos in Rock
They will all be auctioned on the night and there will also be a raffle draw from the donations from local business's.
All the funds will be split equally between MDS - Blood Cancer and Breast Cancer Now.
Tracy told us:
Rock Raises for Cancer was formed last year as two of our friends were diagnosed with MDS - Blood Cancer and Breast Cancer. Both these Charities are desperate for funds for ongoing treatment and trial drugs.
John was diagnosed with MDS - Blood Cancer and offered a trial drug being tested at Treliske Hospital. This is a new trial drug and is only available in selected hospitals in the UK. John was in isolation for about 7 weeks and returned home early January. He is doing really well and is now having further tests and treatment. MDS are desperate for any donations towards their research. We are going to give 50% of all our funds raised to them.
Another friend Vicks was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and is also having Chemotherapy and ongoing treatment. She has also received fantastic care and treatment. We will be giving the other 50% raised to Breast Cancer Now.
We are immensely grateful to Tracy for organising this event.
A huge Thank You as well to all guests attending the evening and those donating. Thanks to events like this one we are able to support MDS patients and their loved ones at those critical moments when anxiety strikes.
We provide a 1-2-1 helpline opened 5 days a week, organise local meetings and maintain an updated website and Facebook Group, among other activities. Thanks for making this possible!
