The Captain's Charity 2015-2017

Published: 10th May 2015

The charity I am supporting during my Captaincy is "The Cove" a cancer support centre which Macmillan Cancer Support are planning to build next to the RCH at Treliske and which will commence construction very soon. Cornwall is one of a few English counties without a cancer support and information centre. As a retired GP I am well aware of the need for such a resource. Every year 3,300 people in Cornwall are told they have cancer, over 20% greater than the national average. This will be a place where they can receive support and information before, during and after treatment.

There is a need to raise another £900,000 so the aim is to help this become a reality over the next two years. So this year we need more support than ever for the Club's Charity Day, you can sponsor a hole for £50, or provide a splendid raffle prize.
