Last week the Ladies Captain Lynn Ashcroft presented a cheque to her second charity (the main one being Penhaligon's Friends) as the Ladies got an unexpected financial boost from helping out at the Chris Harbour Day and it was decided to make a donation to TANYA'S COURAGE TRUST. As a result a cheque was presented for £1,050 to Iris Billing, Tania's Mother and Sister Nicky.
Tanya was an extremely courageous young lady of 17, who bravely fought Adult Acute Myeloid Leukaemia for the last 20 months of her short life. Before being diagnosed and during remission Tanya lived life to the full, inspiring others with her courage and determination. During her last precious months, Tanya expressed the wish to help others of her age group. Therefore, in accordance with this wish and in her memory, her family set up a registered charity in 2005: "The Tanya's Courage Trust". A huge thank you to all who have contributed to this wonderful cause this year.
