STAFF at Bromley’s The Glades shopping centre have chosen The Chartwell Cancer Trust (CCT) as their nominated charity for the year.
Kate Miller, general manager of The Glades, told how the charity supports the work of the Chartwell Cancer and Leukaemia Unit at the Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough.
“The unit provides an invaluable service to the region, and when we asked our staff to nominate our charity of the year, the CCT was the clear choice,” she said.
The mall hopes to raise £50,000 for the charity, which will pay for a specialist nurse for one year, and has already planned some activities to kickstart their fundraising efforts.
“We’ve already entered a team of 20 into the June World War Run,” Kate said. “It’s a 5-mile obstacle race through tough mud pits, hilly terrain and barbed wire crawls, with more than 80 obstacles, mustard smoke and a paintball gauntlet, so will be incredibly tough as well as great fun.
“We’ve also put together a fearless team of ‘Wing Walkers’, who will be taking to the sky at Damyns Hall in Essex on Sunday, 6 August.”
If you fancy wing walking and would like to get involved in the August event, call the CCT team for more details on 01959 570322.
