Introduction

W

elcome to the latest edition of our FUNdraising magazine. I’m pleased to report that everything is going to plan.

The Lily Pad Appeal is gathering momentum and we have transferred the first £100,000 to the Croydon University Hospital Trust. With the current level of support, we will shortly be transferring the second £100,000. Details of our events and our amazing supporters are included in this edition and we are most grateful to you all. Thanks to your efforts, the children undergoing treatment in Croydon University Hospital will soon have a brand new ‘state of the art’ Ward to provide the environment they need and deserve. Fundraising for the No Isolation Robots is progressing well. We now have 12 Robots and 12 very happy young patients. The Robots provide a life line for the children throughout their treatment, keeping them up to speed with their education and helping to maintain their friendships. The Robots are a life changer for these children and we are very fortunate to receive so much support from local businesses and associations who share our belief that every child should have the opportunity to have their own Robot while undergoing treatment. We have another 12 in our sights! Research is a very important part of the fight to beat cancer and leukaemia. Professor John Strouboulis has been appointed as Chair of Molecular Erythropoiesis of the School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Studies at King’s College Hospital. Professor Strouboulis, in brief terms, will be working with cultured cells from patients and manipulating them by gene editing. Unfortunately, research cannot begin without vital equipment such as microbiological safety cabinets and cell culture incubators, so, to enable the research to commence, we have made a donation of £20,000. Professor Strouboulis will be one of our guest speakers at our Christmas Dinner and if you would like to hear more about his research project, please call us for place availability. Our Endoscopy Unit Project starts in earnest on Sunday 29th September with the Great Crystal Palace 5k Positive Path Sponsored Walk. Full details of the walk are contained in this issue, please join us if you can because the upgrade of this Unit is important for us all. Although some of the routine procedures are being transferred to Orpington Hospital, the procedures for cancer and leukaemia patients will still be carried out in the Princess Royal University Hospital. Legacies are a big part of Charity Income and this has a little to do with the Inheritance Tax Relief currently available. If you leave a donation of 10% of your estate to a registered charity, then the rate of Inheritance Tax is reduced from 40% to 36%. For the very wealthy, a donation of £100,000 has a net cost to your estate of £15,000. Call us if you need further information.

Group Trustees Laurence Adams David Apps Stacey Brown Paula Cook Barbara Field-Holmes Graham Figg Scott Johnson Kevin Kingshott Dr Anil Lakhani Andrew Snelgrove

A very big thank you to each and every one of you who has walked, run, jumped out of a plane, climbed the 02, wing-walked , arranged a fundraising event for us, donated time or items for our Charity Shops, you are all beyond amazing and we are so fortunate to have your support. We share the same values and social conscience and together we will make a real difference to the NHS in our area.

Climbing over Cancer Brave supporters climb over London’s O2 dome to raise money to support cancer sufferers, their families and the hospitals that treat them. Report by Barbara Field-Holmes

S

ixty-one brave supporters, some who openly admitted that they were afraid of heights, took part in the Up at the O2 Charity Climb to raise funds for The Chartwell Cancer Trust, The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust, including the children’s oncology ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, and the oncology unit at King’s College Hospital and The CCT Lily Pad Appeal. The climbers were divided into two teams and between them raised over an impressive £17,000. The climb took place on Saturday 25th May. The day was warm and sunny and unlike last year when Nine-year old Millie-Grace Walker climbed it rained heavily all day, with her sister Chloe and dad Paul this year’s climb gave the climbers a fantastic view over London. Those taking up the challenge covered a wide range of ages – the youngest was just nine years old, while the oldest was 73! The first team, headed by Michelle Simpson (CCT), set off at 4pm, with the second team headed by Michelle Calthorpe (CCT) at 4.30pm. Each climber had their own reasons for taking part for all of our charities. Among the climbers on the first team was Team Theo (Katharine and Frank Fell, Simon, Lorraine and Gabriel Bashford, Shelley and Elijah Ingram) in memory of Theo who lost his fight against cancer at just 10 years old. Theo’s family explained: “In 2016, at just eight years old, Theo was diagnosed with a rare spinal tumour. After two and a half years of grueling treatment, endless hospital stays, good days, bad days, and a very brave fight on his part, the tumour

could no longer be controlled and we lost him.” Team Theo were raising money for The CCT Lily Pad Appeal. Theo and his parents had many overnight stays on the oncology section of the Children’s Ward at Croydon University Hospital and are very keen to see other children and their families benefit from what will be vastly improved facilities.

Hazel Smith, Duncan Ancrum, Edward Smith and Alison Ancrum

Also walking in the first team was Edward and Duncan who twisted the arms of their mums, Hazel and Alison, to climb The O2 with them. They were keen to raise money for the Tiger Ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich, where Duncan’s younger brother, Nathan, spent much of his three and a half years being treated for leukaemia from the age of two years, four months. The boys’ school, Southborough Primary School has also chosen us as their charity of the year in support of Nathan. Others climbing for the children’s oncology ward at QE included Sarah and Kev who climbed to give something back to the ward that did so much for their son Jack. Jack was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour (a type of kidney cancer) in October 2017; he finished his treatment in June 2018 and is thankfully, in remission. Jack had some of his treatment and was an in-patient on Tiger Ward, a shared care centre that works alongside The Royal Marsden (which Jack was under) as well as other big hospitals. Sarah and Kev were full of praise for the treatment, both medically and emotionally, that they received. There were many climbing for The CCT and The CCCT, all of who had either direct or indirect contact with a loved one or friend who has been affected by cancer. These included Kevin Siddons and his son Christopher, who was fulfilling his promise to his late Nan to raise money for a cancer charity; Anne Green

CCT AV1 AWARENESS AND DEMO FEATURE

THE CHILD’S EYES, EARS AND VOICE IN THE CLASSROOM Continuing the coverage and promotion of the pioneering technology introduced by No Isolation with the AV1 Robot, The Chartwell Cancer Trust recently held a Awareness and Demonstration Evening at the Oakley House Banqueting Suite, Bromley Common. Report by Barbara Field-Holmes

W

ith an estimated 72,000 children and young people in the UK currently battling long-term illness, inevitable absences from school can be as devastating as the illness itself. When that long-term illness is due to cancer, which is estimated at around 35,000, the devastation can be even more isolating; treatment can leave patients with severely compromised immune systems and highly susceptible to infection. When The Chartwell Cancer Trust first learnt about the inspirational technology that can restore learning and laughter into the lives of oncology children, they were very excited and keen to get involved. The technology that is getting everyone so excited is the AV1 Robot, developed by Norwegian company No Isolation. We have already featured this pioneering technology in FUNdraising Magazine in issues 27 and 28, where we reported on some details about the robot. However, reading about this wonderful piece of technology is not quite the same as seeing it ‘in the flesh’, and seeing it in action. Therefore, in line with The CCT’s mission to bring ‘transformative technology to as many of our young oncology patients as we can, restoring learning and laughter into the lives of seriously ill children’, it was decided that to dramatically increase awareness they needed to demonstrate the robot in action. On the 15th May, Trustee Michael Douglas, along with Group Trustees and staff members of The CCT, hosted an ‘Awareness and Demonstration Evening’ at Oakley House, Bromley, in collaboration with manufacturers No Isolation. The new Mayor of Bromley, Nicholas Bennett (previously Councillor of West Wickham ward) attended the event with his wife, Ruth, along with Councillor Kim Botting (Orpington ward). Michael Douglas opened the evening by welcoming guests and giving a brief

One of the worst things that usually happen to children undergoing cancer treatment is that they lose touch with friends and miss out on education.

Other support included a magic floor for the children provided by the West Kent Freemasons, and the funding of new beds and monitoring equipment in the oncology ward. Michael spoke passionately and said: “The worst thing about having a child with cancer is the way it smashes up your life. Bit by bit the family is drained of their money, as one or both parents has to take time away from work, so another thing we do is help them to pay their bills during this challenging time. “The next thing is the feeling of isolation caused by not mixing with other children, so we set up groups for the children to meet, once a month to enjoy themselves in a safe environment and to help them feel ‘normal’ for a while,” he added.

Guests arriving at the Demonstration and Awareness evening

children. For example, he told how local mum, Melody Berthoud whose son Andrew ‘beat leukaemia’, approached The CCT to ask for help with getting a discount with the Churchill Theatre to take a group of children undergoing

cancer treatment to a show. That led to the Churchill Theatre choosing to support the Charity on an ongoing basis. Another example was raising funds to provide a kitchen for parents and their children undergoing treatment in the Tiger Ward, the children’s oncology ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich where children in Hayes and Bromley go for cancer treatment: Before this, they had nowhere to make a hot drink or prepare food.

“As we are becoming more well known, we are being approached by more people and hospitals that need support. We have recently taken on a project with Croydon University Hospital to raise £750,000 for the refurbishment of the new Children’s Oncology Department within the new Integrated Paediatric Unit at CUH. Last year we presented them with a cheque for £100,000, and continue with our fundraising efforts.” INTRODUCING THE AV1 ROBOT One of the worst things that usually happens to children undergoing cancer treatment is that they lose touch with

CCT AV1 AWARENESS AND DEMO FEATURE friends and miss out on education. The CCT were so impressed when they first saw the AV1 Robot that they ordered six, followed by six more.

“Three years from its inception, we are so thankful to all those who have championed its use and helped us finetune AV1 to what it is today.”

Michael then introduced Harriet Gridley and George Howe from No Isolation, who came to help demonstrate the AV1 Robot and talk a little about the thinking behind its development. Harriet began by saying: “It is an honour to know The Chartwell Cancer Trust and to be here and have the opportunity to demonstrate our magical tool that is transforming the lives of children. Our mission is to reduce loneliness through warm technology.”

George from No Isolation then spoke. He explained how the UK government’s loneliness strategy and the Department for Education has invested over half a

Harriet gave examples of children who had suffered social isolation and loneliness due to illness and being unable to attend school and meet with friends. “You have hospital schools and travelling teachers, but there is nothing like having a relationship with your friends and teachers in the classroom,” said Harriet. “Children also worry about going back to school after having a long absence. We noticed there is a need for that communication, through a friendly interface like a robot.”

Before Harriet, George and Michelle Simpson from The CCT demonstrated three AV1 Robots Harriet Gridley and George Howe to small groups at a time, Mayor of No Isolation Nicholas Bennett addressed the audience. He said: “I can see this technology has far reaching potential in combatting loneliness.” He also thanked Michael for the work that The CCT is doing to raise awareness and find sponsors to buy more of the robots.

CCT Trustee Michael Douglas welcomed guests to the AV1 Robot Awareness and Demonstration Evening

Through a video, Harriet introduced the audience to Karen Dolva, CEO and founder of No Isolation. Karen explained: “Not only is loneliness uncomfortable, but it can have major consequences on our overall health and life outcomes. It is proven to lead to low self-esteem, reduced confidence, and fear of returning to school. It is even argued that loneliness can make our immune system weaker and cancer more deadly. “The concept of AV1 was developed after months of consulting teachers, parents, children and doctors,” continued Karen. “We learnt that the child needed to be physically represented in the classroom, and that the tool needed to be simple, in order to be a seamless part of the school day. What started in the hearts of my cofounders and I, three young Norwegian entrepreneurs, gradually took the form of the avatar AV1, who is the eyes, ears and voice of a child who cannot be physically present at school.

million pounds of its Alternative Provision Innovation Fund in AV1. It has enabled a young Everton fan to fulfill his dream to be a football mascot, allowed a young girl to meet the Dalai Lama and, even more importantly, it has helped 900 children across Europe take part in everyday realities, such as socialising with friends in the school lunch hall. The DfE funding will mean 90 AV1s are being deployed across the UK for a

HOW IT WORKS During the demonstrations guests were able to learn how the robot works. The robot sits in the child’s place in school, or the lunchroom or playground, where he/she can interact with teachers and friends. The child uses a tablet or smart phone that has the AV1 app installed. Through the app the user can connect to their AV1 Robot, which is at the school, whilst they remain remotely in bed with their tablet or smart phone. They can hear through the AV1’s microphone, see through the AV1’s camera, and speak through the AV1’s loudspeaker. They can also control the robot’s movements by swiping on the screen. In addition, there are four sound levels; mute, whisper, normal, loud (for outdoors or assembly). Other clever features include the light at the top of the robot’s head that starts to blink if the child raises their hand for attention. The robot’s eyes can also be controlled to indicate the child’s mood – neutral, happy, confused or sad. And there is also an AV1 Assistant app for teachers, IT staff and others who administer one or several AV1 robots. Through the Assistant app, they can easily check the robot’s battery status, manage WiFi networks, troubleshoot, look up resources, and chat with customer support. The app is downloaded from the App Store and Google Play Store. PRIVACY AND SAFEGUARDING Most importantly, everyone was reassured about the privacy and safeguarding aspect of using the robot. “No Isolation acknowledges Continued on Page 14

CCT AV1 AWARENESS AND DEMO FEATURE that privacy, both for the teacher and the students, is incredibly important,” said George. “AV1 is an innovative product and as such the idea of bringing a device with a camera into the classroom can seem daunting. That is why we have designed the device with privacy and safeguarding at the front of our mind throughout, and built multiple layers of security.” The AV1 cannot record, it only transmits a live stream from the avatar to the AV1 users’ tablet. No data is recorded, and the live stream is end-to-end encrypted, meaning it is impossible for any external party, including No Isolation, to access the stream.

O

n Thursday July 4th, Trustee Bobby Beech, hosted a demonstration and awareness evening to highlight the magic of AV1, the ‘No Isolation’ Robot at On the Beach Salon, Main Road, Biggin Hill. CCT’s Michelle Simpson gave a most informative account and demonstration, and answered questions and queries that arose, particularly regarding the security of the children and possibility of their vulnerability. The event was well attended by members of the community including Cllr. Melanie Stevens and local schools, all who were most impressed to see this pioneering technology in action.

rustee Michael Douglas and Michelle Simpson were delighted to receive, on behalf of the charity, a wonderful donation of £500 from valued supporters Angela and Roy Sutherland, which was raised at the recent Borough of Woolwich Ladies Festival.

The AV1 is also clearly visible when active as its head will lift and the eyes will light up. However, whilst the robot becomes the sick child’s eyes and ears, and the child can see what the AV1 sees, the class cannot see the child. AV1 is a oneuser device so only one AV1 user will be able to connect to a single AV1. Their app is accessible via a secret 4-digit pin code and only one AV1 user can use the app. The AV1 is GDPR compliant as No Isolation do not need, or ask for, any personal data about the AV1 user. The company only stores customer data such as name and contact information of school or local authority in order to process an order or payment.

The Awareness and Demonstration evening was very successful. If you are a local business interested in sponsoring the purchase of an AV1 Robot and would like a member of The CCT team to come and demonstrate this wonderful piece of technology, please contact the office on 01959 570322 or email info@ chartwellcancertrust.co.uk

CCT AV1 AWARENESS AND DEMO FEATURE

ST. JAMES’S PLACE WEALTH MANAGEMENT

WELCOMES THE CCT

O

n Wednesday 10th of April, St. James’s Place Wealth Management were delighted to welcome The Chartwell Cancer Trust’s, Michelle Simpson, to their area meeting at Lingfield Park Racecourse. Senior Partner and representative of the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation, Alison Wright, reported on the meeting event’s… “I met Michelle Simpson about 12 months ago and we were delighted to award The Chartwell Cancer Trust with a grant of £2,500 to treat 160 families to a well-deserved trip to the pantomime at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre. “Since then, Michelle and I have kept in touch to see if we can continue to collaborate in any way. I invited Michelle to attend our area meeting on Wednesday the 10th of April to talk about the work of The Chartwell Cancer Trust. Approximately 180 of my colleagues attended which included an update to St. James’s Place Wealth Management Partners and staff on the work of the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation. Currently, around 85% of my colleagues donate regularly to the Foundation by way of covenant gifting, so it was a great opportunity for them to learn how their generosity helps one of the numerous good causes that our Charitable Foundation supports. “Michelle gave a detailed and engaging account of the role of the AV1 No Isolation Robot and how it assists

children battling with cancer to maintain contact with their friends in the classroom and allows them to continue their studies even if they are too physically ill to attend school. She impressed on us all how valuable that was in terms of maintaining contact with their peers and keeping up with school work as far as possible. Michelle also chatted to my colleagues and demonstrated the Robot during the coffee break. Without exception, they were very impressed with this amazing technology. “Attendees were invited to pledge some money that morning. They were in no doubt how much of an impact this would make to the recipient and to the charity. Collectively, we raised the sum of £2,660 towards the cost of one Robot. Having speakers such as Michelle at our meetings really does help to gain the support of my colleagues and highlights the work of the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation, which supports a large number of charities both in the UK and overseas, including The Chartwell Cancer Trust. “I look forward to many more successful collaborations with The Chartwell Cancer Trust in the future.” Alison Wright is Senior Partner of St. James’s Place Wealth Management and representative of the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation. www.alisonwright.co.uk www.sjpfoundation.co.uk

THE GREAT CROYDON 5K

- a huge success!

Over 600 Croydonians of all ages and abilities arrived at Croydon’s Lloyd Park on Sunday 5th May for ‘The Great Croydon 5K Walk’ to raise money to help children with cancer in the Croydon area. This was the first ever large-scale fundraiser to raise money towards The Chartwell Cancer Trust’s Lily Pad Appeal, which was set up to raise £750,000 to build a new and modernised Oncology Unit at Croydon University Hospital. The new Oncology Unit will be part of the hospital’s new Integrated Paediatric Village.

T

he day was a resounding success, it was bright and sunny and the turnout was brilliant! It was fantastic to see so many young walkers crossing the finishing line alongside parents, colleagues, friends and dogs! A group of youngsters led by Charmaine Green had great fun. Charmaine told FUNdraising Magazine: “My little group and I had a fabulous day, so thank you for organising the walk. Having had a child go through treatment for cancer and receiving her shared care at Croydon University Hospital, we understand how essential it is for us to raise this money. It was also lovely to see my daughter’s consultant also supporting the cause and taking part. Well done Dr Patel.” The whole event was extremely well organised, thanks to the Lily Pad Project team, volunteers and marshals, who were on hand to supply bottles of water and snacks to help walkers on their way. Around £35,000 has been raised. It was a real pleasure to meet so many of you, put faces to names, make new friends and connections and experience first hand how much warmth and support there is for the project. We are incredibly grateful to the Croydon community for taking this appeal into their hearts. We couldn’t do this without you! Special thanks go to the Croydon Conservative Group of Councillors. They pooled together money from their

community ward budgets in order to donate £30,000 to The CCT Lily Pad Appeal. Their donation will help fund a brand new play area to provide moments of respite for young patients. Councillor Yvette Hopley, Shadow Cabinet member for Health and Adult Social Care, said: “The tragic reality is that child cancer has affected so many across Croydon, from the youngsters themselves to relatives, classmates and neighbours. Our borough is united in doing everything we can to make a tangible difference. It has been a privilege to have the chance to make this donation and we will do all we can to help the Trust raise the necessary funds to make their vision a lasting reality.” The Croydon Conservatives also put a team together to take part in the 5K walk and encouraged others in the community to do the same. In the months that follow, Councillors will reach out to residential associations and other local community groups to develop new fundraising initiatives. Thanks also to members of the Rotary Club of Croydon Jubilee, for their support, they did a brilliant job as marshals for the day. We would also like to thank the ‘warm up team’ from The Gym Group as well as the then outgoing Croydon Madame Mayor, Councillor Bernadette Khan, and her husband Mr Qaiyum Khan.

LEGAL ADVICE

WRITING YOUR WILL L

ike many busy families, you find yourself struggling to squeeze in a full-time career between family meals, supermarket trips, after-school clubs and hospital trips. Writing a will is probably the last thing on your mind. There is always going to be something more pleasant to think about. If you still have not quite got round to it, don’t worry – you’re certainly not alone. It’s estimated that nearly two-thirds of UK adults don’t have any form of will at all, including 42% of the over 55s. It is also estimated that about 1.5 million people who have gone to the trouble of writing one, may be completely unaware that it’s now invalid because they recently got married, for example. What people don’t realise, is that having a will in place could actually be one of the quickest and easiest ways to protect your family, secure your assets and ensure peace of mind for everyone. And the sooner you get your wishes in writing the better. After all, we never know what tomorrow will bring. That’s why the experts will always advise you to secure what you have today – and review it as things change further down the road. The good news is, writing your will doesn’t have to be complicated or take lots of time. With the right advice, it can be quick, simple and very cost-effective.

There are plenty of reasons to get started as soon as you can. Here are our top five: 1. IF YOU DON’T DECIDE WHO GETS WHAT, THE GOVERNMENT WILL Unless you clearly state how you want your assets to be distributed among your partner, children and family members, there are no guarantees. The generic government rules stating which family members inherit the assets will be followed. The only way to make sure you have your say is to put it in writing. 2. YOU CAN MINIMISE STRESS, COSTS AND LEGAL CHALLENGES The last thing your loved ones need at such a difficult time is extra complications. Providing a written will not only simplify the whole legal process, but it is also often a good way to save inheritance tax. Remember, to make sure it’s valid, you will need to date and sign and countersign the document in the presence of two witnesses.

guardianship of your children in the event of your death. 4. GETTING MARRIED, DIVORCED, SEPARATED OR COHABITING CHANGES EVERYTHING

Adjoa Djan-Krofa, Principal Solicitor and a member of Laptops and Lipstick

 any people do not M realise that a change in marital status can affect any previous will and testament. Your current partner may not have automatic rights over your assets in the event of your death, and your ex may not be as far out of the picture as you think. The laws surrounding marital rights and inheritance are complex so, if you are in any doubt, it is best to get legal advice.

5. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT’S AROUND THE CORNER As long as you are over 18, writing your will might be the best thing you do today to protect your loved ones from the unknown. You can secure your house, car, investments, family jewellery and even digital assets such as Facebook, PayPal and so on. And you can update or change your will as many times as you like. Always seek professional advice. So before you set off for the beach or go on your next holiday, protect your family. For many people, writing a will can be simple and straightforward – so there is no reason to put it off. We will be delighted to help you find your way if your situation is a bit of a minefield, or just want reassurance that what you have drafted is fair and not open to misinterpretation, we are here to help. Just get in touch. Call us at 020 84681032 or email info@pishongold.co.uk. Pishon Gold are proud supporters of The Chartwell Cancer Trust. If you are thinking of leaving a gift to support the work of this charity, we are pleased to offer a 10% on our standard will writing service.

For more information contact Pishon Gold Solicitors LB of Bromley on 0208 468 1032 or email info@pishongold.co.uk

SOPHIE’S WISH The Tylee family have recently returned from a five-day stay at ‘Sophie’s Wish’. Six-year old Jack, had been treated on the children’s Tiger Ward at the QE last year. He was extremely excited to be going on an adventure with mum and dad, his twin brother, Louis and big sister Erin.

J

ack’s mum Sarah said: “Our holiday began as soon as we stepped on to the ferry. The children were so excited! When we arrived at the holiday park, we all thought the ‘Sophie’ Wish’ Lodge was absolutely stunning, set in such beautiful surroundings on the holiday park. It was a real home from home.

“We definitely made use of all of the facilities at the holiday park during our stay. We visited the swimming pool every day. The children were constantly on the water flume. You could hear their screams of delight as they came down! Every night we headed down to the entertainment complex to the children’s mini-disco. The children were always up dancing and even dragged us parents up too! (We pretended we had to be dragged but it was fun to join in the old classics like ‘Superman’ again!) We went to the beach, a short walk away from the Lodge. It was really picturesque and the children loved trying to skim stones in the sea! It was very quiet down there and we felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves! We also had dinner in the lovely Nab Bar a couple of times. It was really tasty with a good family atmosphere. “Although there is plenty to do at the park, we decided to head out and explore some of the Island. We drove to the Shanklin seafront where the children went on the rides, which was great fun. We also went to Shanklin itself and walked around the quaint shops and, of course, stopped for ice cream. “One of the days was rainy, but that did not stop us. We decided to take a trip to the ‘Dinosaur Isle’ Museum in Sandown. The children are really into dinosaurs so this proved to be great day out for them. And we all know how much children love a gift shop! 28

“On our last day, we took a trip to the ‘Blackgang Chine’ theme park, a fantasy land with different themes running throughout. The kids especially loved the Wild West Land. “To finish off our stay, we returned to the holiday park to the disco and amusements! “Sophie’s Wish Lodge is so so lovely. Sophie Powell, through her family, has left an amazing legacy, bringing families together for good times and making wonderful memories. Thank you so much for letting us have the opportunity to stay there. The children did not want to come home! We had a lovely time together as a family.” To date Sophie’s legacy has raised £135,000 and thank you for your kind donations including: Co-op Falconwood Link Financial 1st Mayland Brownies Colchester

Situated at Whitecliff Bay Holiday Park, Bembridge, guests can enjoy a beautiful private sandy beach, indoor and outdoor pool, multi-sport court, adventure playground, crazy golf, indoor soft play, daytime activities, a bar, diner and evening entertainment.

DINNER AT THE

The Palace of Westminster is one of the world’s most iconic buildings and the home of democracy. Wherever you are in the world, every time you switch on the television, you see the Palace of Westminster from the South Bank. Even from a distance you can see the magnificent terrace overlooking the river. If you happened to look at the terrace on Friday 26th April, you would have seen our guests enjoying pre-dinner drinks and the wonderful view of the river and London skyline, before moving into Dining Room A for a splendid evening of music and speeches from our very special guests.

S

enior Trustee, Michael Douglas, welcomed everyone and introduced Lead Consultant Paediatric Oncologist Dr Soonie Patel and the Member of Parliament for Central Croydon, Sarah Jones. Michael then introduced Trustee Rachel Rogan who said Grace. After dinner, Michael gave a brief history of the charity, and thanked so many of our guests for their support, mentioning those who always go the extra mile for us. He then introduced Rachel Rogan who gave us a progress report on the Lily Pad Campaign and a general invitation to the many events and functions we have in the months ahead. After a lovely round of applause for Rachel, Michael introduced Dr Soonie Patel. Soonie explained her role in Croydon University Hospital and gave us details of the problems that her young patients are presented with, and the treatment plans they face on their journey to recovery. Soonie spoke softly when describing some of the treatment that her young patients face, but not for long, because Soonie’s Mum, Mukta, who had accompanied her, promptly told her to speak up! We all found this amusing, as did Soonie, who reminded us that whoever you are, and wherever you go, Mum is still in charge! Soonie also told us that she was both surprised and delighted to be presented with a cheque for £100,000 before dinner by the Lily Pad Team: Rachel Rogan, Sara Borg, Jo Bennett and Lucy Bramley, the first instalment of our contribution to the New Integrated Paediatric Ward. Soonie received a warm round of applause and Michael thanked her for the amazing work that she does for our children. Michael then introduced Lucy Bramley. Lucy introduced our guests to the charity’s No Isolation project and explained in detail the difference that these Robots are making to children undergoing treatment. Essentially the Robot takes the place of the child in the classroom. The child can access lessons from anywhere via a mobile phone or tablet meaning that they can keep up with their schoolwork and school friends throughout their treatment. Lucy was applauded and thanked for introducing us to No Isolation Robots. Michael informed us that we currently had 12 in use with another 12 required. Michael then introduced Soprano Courtney Noakes. Courtney entertained us with four songs from popular musicals and, as always, amazed us with her beautiful voice.

30

Courtney was loudly applauded and Michael thanked her for donating her time, once again, to support our charity. Michael introduced our final guest, The Right Honourable Sarah Jones MP. Sarah is the MP for Central Croydon and was also appointed Shadow Housing Minister, two days after being elected as Croydon’s first ever female MP. Sarah gave us a very interesting and humorous report on how the Government and opposition works, and how challenging everyday problems in Croydon are. She referred to the Brexit issue as ‘a bit of trouble upstairs’, which we all found amusing. She also mentioned that she was educated in Croydon, as was Soonie Patel, and how encouraging it was to know that both of them still worked there. Sarah received a very warm round of applause. Michael thanked her for the effort she made to attend this evening, explaining that Sarah had been working in Birmingham until 5pm and still managed to get here on time! Michael thanked Rachel, Lucy, Soonie, Courtney, and Sarah again and all of our guests for joining us and for their continued support. He told us that the Charity is still, and always will be, run on a shoestring and that every penny raised will be used with care. He then wished us all a safe journey home adding that he hoped to see us all again soon.

Dr Soonie Patal is presented with a cheque for £100,000 by the Lily Pad Team’s Rachel Rogan, Sara Borg, Jo Bennett and Lucy Bramley, for the New Integrated Paediatric Ward

Paris Tandem

T

hank you to Amanda and Alex Kalogroulis for taking part in a Tandem Bike Ride from London to Paris on 25th June. Rachel Rogan from The CCT Lily Pad team met Amanda at a CRX networking event and decided to raise money for the appeal. Amanda said: “We arrived in Paris on 1st July, after 4 days and 192 miles. There were some very challenging moments but, overall, we did enjoy it and are so glad we did. We raised over £1,200 which worked out about £6 for each mile we cycled. There were times that this made a massive difference to us - most notably when we had a three mile nonstop uphill climb which took us an hour because it was so steep, so hot and so relentless, as well as being at the end of our third day. We were rewarded by a long downhill stretch afterwards and got up to 39 miles an hour! “We have spent the last couple of days cycling round Paris and visiting the tourist attractions - much easier to do on a bike, we have found. When we were at the Eiffel Tower we asked someone to take a picture of us and we got chatting about what we were doing, and she very kindly donated £30!” Their final stage is to drive back to Dieppe to catch the ferry across the Channel followed by a 50 cycle ride home which will bring them up to 300 miles in total. Well done Amanda and Alex, an incredible achievement.

‘Not Just Any Old Quiz Night’

O

n a very sunny Thursday evening in May, 104 participants, making up 13 teams took part in The CCT Lily Pad’s ‘Not Just Any Old Quiz Night’ which was held at the Beefeater, Coombe Lodge in South Croydon. There were thirteen teams of CCT Lily Pad Appeal supporters, local business owners and Croydon based businesses and community members including Utility Warehouse, Ladies Who Latte Networking Group, Sussex Innovation and 4N Networking Group. The event was brilliantly compered by local entertainer Wayne Trice from ‘Magic in a Trice’, who kept the event lively and on track. There was live music provided by the wonderfully talented Audley Anderson and good food provided by Coombe Lodge as well as Prosecco for each team. There was a lot of laughter, singing, frustration and a good dose of competitive spirit! For a long time, it looked as though the ‘Not Just Any Old Winning Team’ were going to run away with the title but after an amazing 10/10 flags round (the most difficult flags round ever so we were told), ‘Taking Care of Quiziness’ stole the winners title. Everyone had a great time as well as raising almost £1700 for the Lily Pad Appeal. A special shout out to Armando and his team at Beefeater Coombe Lodge for working so hard to make sure the event was a great success. Thank you to all our Lily Pad Supporters and team members involved in making it such a special and successful evening.

NATTERBOX

T

hank you to Natterbox for choosing to support the Lily Pad Appeal at their 2019 Summer Experience in July. We joined them on Thursday 4th July, which was a very super sunny day indeed! Natterbox staff, customers and the Lily Pad team were invited to try a range of exhilarating activities: microlites, aeroplanes, paragliding, water zorbing, helicopters, hang gliding, quad bikes, and ‘banging choons’ (loud music to most of our readers!). There was also an auction in the afternoon, and together with donations, the event raised a brilliant £8,500.

CCT ARTICLE

How a business consultant is WORKING FOR GOOD! FUNdraising magazine talks to Lee Lam of Lee Lam Consultancy Ltd about how and why she donates to charity through her business. Report by Barbara Field-Holmes

L

ee Lam’s beaming, warm smile puts you at ease as soon as she meets you and is soon chatting about her work and telling me all about giving to charity. She says: “When I tell people that I give to charity through my business, I am confirming to them that my business is here to benefit all of society, which is really the purpose of every business – if you think about it! I am able to improve my own reputation and people want to work with me because they know in a way they are giving back as well.” Lee describes herself as a ‘disruptor consultant’, so I asked what exactly that meant? “I work with individuals and companies to drastically rethink their ‘status quo’ and to get their actions more in line with their desired outcomes,” she explains. A key question asked on the Lee Lam website is, “Are your blind spots disrupting your potential?” Lee explains further: “There are always blind spots – characteristics of you and your organisation that you don’t have visibility of but you know could cause you problems. Some of them are harmless and low risk; others can cause significant damage if left unchecked.” Lee Lam Consultancy offers a range of services and packages tailored for businesses (including start ups) or for individuals. She adds: “I believe that the status quo should be constantly challenged and validated, because I believe you can always be better. I want you to understand the power of confusion, of taking what you know and turning it on its head. Not by thinking out of the box, but ignoring the box completely!” Lee’s career began and developed in technology within financial services, where after 23 years she reached COO and Chief of Staff level positions. During that time, she also ran a coaching consultancy for 14 years, doing both business consultancy and personal coaching. She says: “I enjoy the mix of corporate acumen and emotional intelligence to carry on both the career and business and I believe it is the combination of both that makes me a formidable asset! “I have something of a complicated career path, with one constant,” continues Lee. “I always strove to get to positions where I could challenge current ways of thinking and create something better. This didn’t always make me popular, but my tenacity meant I implemented multiple ideas that I was told wouldn’t or couldn’t work. I found that the main reason for the lack of optimism was because it involved getting the people in the organisation enthusiastic and that felt too complex – whereas for me, that was the exciting part. “I am different because of how I do my work, not what I do,” she emphasises. It’s certainly worth looking at the Lee Lam website to find out more about how Lee works and how she could benefit your company or you as an individual. So what inspired Lee to join Work for Good and start donating to charities?

40

“I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2016 and had to have surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy as part of my treatment plan. Staff in the Chartwell Cancer Unit, Princess Royal University Hospital, Kent, looked after me for the following nine months. During that time, the team there was incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and patient (I like asking lots of questions and thankfully, they never minded answering them!), and I saw a perfect example of people doing work that had real meaning for them, and had a real purpose. “This had a huge impact on the way I viewed my work and made me want to do business my way, because when you work with passion and purpose, you achieve so much more. I was also aware that many of the little details that made my treatment time so bearable – extra breast cancer nurses, new furniture, chairs and equipment for the chemotherapy ward – were paid for by The Chartwell Cancer Trust. When I joined Work for Good, I knew that I wanted to keep supporting the unit by supporting this charity, and in my own little way, give back to the men and women who looked after me through a very stressful time.” In 2018 Lee pledged to give 10% of every invoice she raised between March and December to The Chartwell Cancer Trust – “the charity that supported me during my cancer treatment”. Lee raised over £1,000 for The CCT. She also organised an event where the ticket price was offered back to the charity of their choice, allowing her to not only give back but also to let more people know of the Work for Good organisation. Lee Lam is continuing to give throughout 2019. She says: “I really want to continue with the percentage donation pledge from last year, but I also feel that there is an opportunity to attach it to events and launches I do as part of my business, where it can gain more exposure and highlight this important work even more.” Work for Good is the brainchild of Rupert Pick, who was inspired to give back to the amazing hospital staff who cared for his daughter Ottie. Ottie was born 10 weeks premature, weighing less than 3lbs and with two rare genetic conditions that affect both her bones and her heart. When Rupert decided to donate the fees from his next workshop to the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, it made him wonder about all the wonderful things that could happen if only more businesses chose to give through their work. Work for Good’s member charities range from small local charities, such as The Chartwell Cancer Trust, to national and international organisations. All UK registered charities are welcome.

GROUP MEET-UPS O

n Sunday 28th April, the Childhood Cancer Support Group held their first swimming pool party at Darrick Wood Swimming Pool. It was the first time the Group had attended this type of party. It is so important for our oncology children to be in a safe, neutropenic environment, in particular, those having to use portocaths. But, with the amazing support of the Mytime team, in particular, Simon, George, Charles and Joe, we are delighted to report that it was a fantastic success. Everyone had a brilliant time splashing around and playing on the inflatables in the pool to very loud music! Even the adults enjoyed themselves after being dragged into the pool by the children. It was also great to be able to relax together afterwards in the party room and enjoy some snacks and party games. All of the children were given an Easter Egg to take home, kindly donated by the Direct Line Group, Bromley. Thank you to Mytime who really went above and beyond to make it such a special and memorable day for everyone.

Simon, George and Charles from the Mytime Team

A

great time was had by all when the group visited Buzz Zone in The Walnuts Leisure Centre in Orpington on Sunday 30th June. The Buzz Zone is a huge soft play that has a massive slide, ball ponds, mouse holes, rollers, rope bridges, air machines, with special areas for smaller children including a fully functioning shop and Formula One car and pit stop. A very big thank-you to the amazing Mytime team at The Walnuts, especially, Shannon and Ellie who were great hosts and joined in with the games, including a massive game of hide and seek using the whole apparatus, which everyone loved, including some of the parents. Happy 4th Birthday to Kanza, who spent her special day with us and also shared her beautiful birthday cake with the Group

The children were all stars with their own debuts of a magic show, singing, dancing performances and karate chops! Parents and staff also gave their rendition of ‘We Will Rock You!’ The Holiday Inn put on a fantastic feast of food in the interval for the children to refuel before another session of dancing and singing. The party ended with some balloon modelling and all the children went home with an Easter Egg in hand! The children all love these parties so much that we are all now on countdown to Halloween!

THE REWARD BOX BY HEALTH PLAY SPECIALIST, CAROL SULLIVANWALLACE, SAFARI/TIGER WARD, QUEEN ELIZABETH HOSPITAL

A

ll of our patients, big and small, go through many challenges during their treatment and one of the most noticeable for us on the ward is how they learn to cope with having their ports accessed. This can sometimes be painful and often, for the first few months, can cause anxiety and sadness. We try and gain our children and young people’s trust by explaining why they are having a procedure and how we can make it as pain free as possible.

THE CHARTWELL CHILDREN’S CANCER TRUST

Another outstanding fundraising effort FOR POSH BINGO Thank you to the amazing Posh Bingo team for another outstanding fundraising effort. Inspired by a group of local mums, Posh Bingo is now in its 3rd year and has become an annual fundraising tradition, raising thousands for The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust.

P

osh Bingo once again jumped and jived (35-ed) its way into the Highfield Infants’ School hall to raise thousands of pounds for The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust. Everything about the fun-filled evening, held on Friday May 17 (dancing queen), was tickety boo (62). Amongst the laughter, lines of bingo games, bottles of bubbly, live auction and raffle, nearly £9,000 was raised. And thanks to additional donations to the Posh Bingo team following May’s event, a total of more than £12,000 has been raised for the charity. This year’s Posh Bingo was Lucky Number 3 – the third, consecutive, Posh Bingo night to have been held at Highfield. Prior to bingo balls bouncing into this Shortlandsbased school, two swishing evenings – stylish, sustainable clothes swaps – were also held here. This means that, over the past five years, the Highfield community has raised more than £40,000 for Chartwell. This means a great deal to the school because, over the past few years, it has provided invaluable support to two Highfield families. Five years ago, Beau Apsley was diagnosed with leukaemia. Her mother, Larissa, and a group of local mums, were inspired to raise funds for Chartwell and began what has now become an annual fundraising tradition. Previous years have seen the Highfield community raise funds to support essential nurse staffing, observation and breathing machines, and a new kitchen for Tiger Ward. This year, the monies raised will go towards the purchase of a No Isolation Robot. Larissa said: “The Posh Bingo team would like to thank all those who helped make our event such an enormous success. This includes everyone who attended our funfilled evening and/or bought raffle tickets and auction prizes. It also incorporates the many businesses who kindly helped fund the event’s refreshments and donated

The C&K FUNdraising Magazine Issue 29 – 2019

to our raffle and auction. Our fundraising efforts would not be possible without your kindness and generosity. “We think you will all agree that £12,000+ is a staggering sum that will be greatly appreciated – not less because some of it will be invested in an No Isolation robot enabling children who are too sick to attend school to continue their education. “Thank you for your kindness - it’s these moments which bring us together as a community and show how much we care about our local children who are fighting cancer.” This year’s Posh Bingo event was made possible thanks to donations from many local and UK-wide businesses including: Keith Catchpole, Argos, Bunka, BlackRock, Breeze Yoga, Bromley Football Club, Chapter One, Cleverbox, Carluccio’s, Giraffe, InterTalent, Mytime Active, Neal’s Yard Remedies, Nuffield Health Fitness Wellbeing & Gym, Primo Caffé, Percy & Reed, Sainsbury’s, South of the River, Tesco, The Manor at Bickley, Tibbs Military Fit, Toni & Guy, Whistles, Vue (Bromley), Cook, Coughlans’s Bakery, Harper’s, Hobbs, My Place, Muscari White’s Floris, Paperchase and Waitrose.

The tube creates a sensory zone and a calming atmosphere for patients of any age and can be moved easily between the playroom and cubicles whenever it is needed.

TONI & GUY WARD CUBICLES REFURB

W

e are very pleased to report, that after a year of planning, the refurbishment of the Toni & Guy Ward cubicles and playroom has commenced. This has been inspired by Charley Scott, who spent many days and nights on the ward, when her daughter was receiving treatment. At that time, Charley thought that all of the 11 existing rooms were bland, featureless, cold and unwelcoming. She decided that they needed brightening up to create a colourful, spacious and much warmer atmosphere. After careful, planning and design, each room will be brightly painted in especially colour matched paint, donated by Dulux. One wall in each room will be decorated in mural wall paper, the fantastic designs chosen by the children and teenagers from the ward, donated by Mural Wallpapers. There is a dedicated team of decorators ‘800 Group’, who are coming in across several weekends to carry out the work to ensure there is as minimum disruption as possible. So far, five cubicles and the playroom has been completed. New TV’s, white boards, picture frames and sensory ceiling panels are next on the agenda for each cubicle and an interactive magic gaming floor for the playroom. Thank you so much to Charley, Herne Hill School and Kingfishers Charity, for raising the funds to make this happen and 800 group for their excellent decorating skills to bring the dream to a reality. The children’s visits to the ward are so much brighter.

‘JUMPING UP AND DOWN IN On Sunday 9th June, a team of 40 took part in the 5k Mud Monsters Obstacle Course. Four-year old, Jess Scott, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma two and a half years ago and is currently being treated on Toni & Guy Ward, King’s College Hospital. Jess’s mum, Charley Scott, organised the event to help raise money in aid of The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust reports…. “YEP! IT’S TRUE! Two weeks ago, forty of us ran 5k through deep puddles of mud, horse manure and much much more at the Mud Monsters Obstacle Course to raise money for The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust. “Our four-year old daughter, Jess, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma two and a half years ago. Last summer, we had the most incredible day arranged by The CCCT with fly2help. It was the first time we felt like we were doing something fun and interesting as a family, rather than the everyday avoidance of public places in case Jess picked up some bug or other and needed to go into hospital. We had such a magical time. There and then we decided we wanted to support families like us. “And so we chose a sponsored Mud Monsters day. It began with 20 eager children taking part in the 2/3km obstacle course. They absolutely loved climbing the nets, jumping in the muddy ditches and clambering down the muddy banks into extremely muddy streams. They finished the course very pleased with themselves and very deserving of their medals. “Then it was the turn of us adults! 20 of us, including, The Chartwell Cancer Trust’s, Michelle Simpson, began a

huge endurance test. There were 10ft sheer walls to clamber up, tyre walls, mud pools up to our chests to walk through, flooded muddy concrete pipes to scramble though, and, let your imagination go wild, many more muddy moments! Safe to say, our white ‘Team Scott’ T-shirts were not so white by the end. And the mud absolutely stank! When flies are chasing you, it can’t be a good sign! We were advised to keep our mouths shut! “It was a huge challenge. It took us two and a half hours to complete the 5k course, with approx. 40+ obstacles along the route. It was tough, but nothing compared to the journey children living with cancer go through. Watching Jess go through so much on her journey, kept us all going till the bitter end. We laughed the whole way and the team work was phenomenal - and that is what it’s all about when your child or someone you know has cancer

At the meeting, Michelle also thanked Alex and Lindie for taking part in The CCT’s charity O2 climb in May and to everyone who sponsored and came along to support them on the day. The Group are also returning to the CCT’s Dragon Boat Event in September to kick-start their new year of fundraising, and to challenge their best race heat time!

T

he Laptops and Lipstick Summer Drinks took place on the 3rd July at Langley Park Golf Club. It was a beautiful evening, perfect for Pimms on the terrace and for taking in the stunning scenery. CCT’s Michelle Simpson also demonstrated the AV1 No Isolation Robot to guests as they are fundraising for a robot next year.

O’NEILLS

T

hank you to Tina and the O’Neill’s Bromley team for their continued support over the past year. They held a variety of fundraisers including a very brave Caitlin Burns wing-walking, bucket collections during the world cup games and a really fun ‘Tiki Night’ last Summer. They also very kindly hosted a Christmas party for CCT staff and volunteers in December. CCT’s Michelle Simpson was delighted to be presented with a cheque for £1600. More recently O’Neill’s donated the Prosecco for the CCT’s VIP event at Biggin Hill Festival of Flight this August. We look forward to seeing what else they have up their sleeve over the coming months!

JAGUAR ENTHUSIASTS’ CLUB

BROMLEY LITTLE THEATRE

T

hankfully, the sun shone brightly on the Kent Region Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club’s annual Summer Garden Party, hosted by JEC members Geoff and Lesley Waterman in their infamous party barn. But with live music and an outdoor BBQ for over 200 people, it was lucky we had pre-ordered the weather. The excellent catering was supplied by Fayre Do’s and the music by 2 bands and a duo. Funny how many people did not realise they like Reggae and Ska! ‘FUNdraising’ was exactly the theme of the day as the JEC club members were joined by several others, young and old, who came to support this event - thank you to all for raising £5,500. Thank you to everyone who attended and to the JEC for their continued support

T

hank you to the Bromley Little Theatre for allowing us to attend the charity preview production of ‘Loot’ in May. Our guests and the Chartwell Team had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and found the play extremely entertaining, whilst raising funds at the same time!

THE CHARTWELL CANCER TRUST

Fundraising £350k for the refurbishment and upgrade of the New Endoscopy Cancer Unit at The Princess Royal University Hospital There are around 10,000 endoscopic procedures a year, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year.

CCT Supporters’ UPDATE

CCT SUPPORTERS’ UPDATE VALLEY PRIMARY SCHOOL

C

ongratulations to supporters Valley Primary School for their amazing efforts in reaching the target for their Guinness World Record (GWR) attempt, by making in excess of 36,000 Pom Poms! The official count, by Guinness World Record officials and Adjudicator, along with a film crew, took place on Friday 5th July. When we went to press we were still waiting to hear if the record had officially been broken. Due to the sheer volume of Pom Poms, a bigger space was needed for the official count. This took place in the Sports Hall of Langley Boys School. This was a very long and painstaking process as the Pom Poms had to be laid out in one long continuous line, each touching each other with no gaps. The Pom Poms were counted twice under the supervision of the Adjudicator with several cameras filming the evidence. Some of the children were filmed, sharing their experiences and even got a sneaky peek of the new GWR 2020 book! CCT’s Michelle Simpson was also interviewed, which was a fantastic opportunity to explain how the charity got involved with this exciting project and

64

the chance to demonstrate the AV1 ‘No Isolation robot’ that the school is raising funds for. Charlotte English from Valley Primary School said: “Everyone did an awesome job and we certainly worked hard enough to smash the record, so fingers crossed. Thanks a million to everyone who helped out. It was a very long day but hopefully our efforts will be rewarded, it was a fantastic community event and hopefully achievement!” Valley Primary School are now patiently waiting to hear from GWR for official confirmation that they have indeed broken the Pom Pom record! Well done for getting this far and we have everything crossed that the record is awarded to you. Thank you to everyone who made the Pom Poms over the past year, especially CCT supporter, Barbara Cole, who made over a staggering 3,000 Pom Poms!

Statistics from the 2019 Book of Guinness World Records 38,205 applications were made for record attempts last year. This is more than 100 a day. Only 3,178 (8%) of these were approved. Only 0.0054% of the World’s population have the right to display a Guinness World Record Certificate on their wall and a very small number of these are recorded in the Guinness World Records Book.

HEALTHCARE ADVICE

Hairy cell leukaemia

Hairy cell leukaemia is one of the most rare types of leukaemia, which is cancer of the white blood cells.

H

airy cell leukaemia gets its name from the fine, hair-like strands around the outside of the cancerous cells, which are visible under a microscope. It’s not known what causes hairy cell leukaemia. The condition most commonly affects people aged 40-60 and is more common in men than women.

If you have hairy cell leukaemia, it’s likely your red blood cell and platelet counts will be low. A bone marrow sample may also be taken, which gives the haematologist more detailed information about your condition. You may also need an ultrasound scan or a computerised tomography (CT) scan to examine your spleen.

Signs and symptoms

Treatment

The symptoms of hairy cell leukaemia develop slowly and are similar to those of other types of leukaemia.

As hairy cell leukaemia develops slowly, immediate treatment may not be needed. You’ll have regular blood tests to monitor your condition. Treatment may be recommended if the number of abnormal white blood cells increases or if you develop symptoms. Chemotherapy is the main treatment for hairy cell leukaemia and is usually effective at destroying the cancerous cells. The two main chemotherapy medications used are: • cladribine – given as either an injection just under the skin, or through a drip directly into a vein (infusion) • pentostatin – given as an injection directly into a vein (intravenously) every two weeks Rituximab, a type of medication known as a monoclonal antibody, may sometimes be used in combination with chemotherapy. It works by attaching to a protein found on leukaemia cells and the immune system then targets and kills the cells. Surgery to remove the spleen is rarely used as a treatment for hairy cell leukaemia. However, removal of your spleen may be recommended if: • it’s enlarged and is causing pain or discomfort • it’s destroying large numbers of red blood cells or platelets • it hasn’t reduced in size after chemotherapy As with most types of cancer, the outlook for hairy cell leukaemia will depend on how far the condition has advanced at the time of diagnosis and how well it responds to treatment. As hairy cell leukaemia is a rare type of cancer, it’s difficult to accurately predict how it will affect individuals in the long term. The Cancer Research UK website has more information about: • Types of treatment for hairy cell leukaemia • Staging hairy cell leukaemia • Living with hairy cell leukaemia

They include: • unintentional weight loss • pale skin • weakness, tiredness and breathlessness (due to the lack of red blood cells) • frequent infections • bleeding or bruising easily • pain or swelling in your abdomen (tummy) (see below) As with other types of leukaemia, hairy cell leukaemia is a cancer of the white blood cells. Over time, the build-up of cancerous white blood cells disrupts the normal balance of cells in the blood. This means your body doesn’t have enough red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body, or platelets, which help stop bleeding. This can lead to all of the symptoms listed above. Also, as the white blood cells are not properly developed, they are less effective at fighting bacteria and viruses, making you more vulnerable to infection. The abnormal white blood cells can accumulate in your spleen, causing it to increase in size. The spleen is an organ in the upper left side of your abdomen, behind your stomach and ribs. If your spleen is enlarged, it’s likely you’ll have a painful lump on the left side of your abdomen. If this is the case, you should visit your GP so the lump can be examined. An enlarged spleen may remove normal blood cells from your bloodstream. This can lead to a further reduction in the number of normal red and white blood cells and platelets in your blood.

Diagnosis If your GP suspects leukaemia, they may refer you to a haematologist (a specialist in blood disorders). The haematologist will carry out blood tests to determine how many different types of blood cells there are in your blood sample. This is known as a full blood count (FBC).

hank you to Mr Michael J King for transferring author and publisher copyright of his book ‘The Pharaoh Cinciris’ to The Chartwell Cancer Trust. Michael is a regular recipient of our magazine and enjoys reading every issue, and is always interested to see how the Chartwell is moving forward. Michael’s late mother was first diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in December 2012 at the Chartwell Unit. The Lung Cancer Nurse Specialist who was with the surgeon and him at the time told him to get his book published once learning that he had researched and written one but had not progressed any further. His mother also persisted so he got the book published and HM the Queen received the first copy! The book is dedicated to his mother, and he has pledged future royalties to The Chartwell Cancer Trust. Follow the link: https://bit.ly/2YnlFnZ

CCT ABOUT US

The Chartwell Cancer Trust Supporting The Princess Royal University Hospital

T

he Chartwell Cancer Trust supports the Chartwell Unit at The Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough that serves patients from the Bromley Borough, Lambeth, Southwark and beyond in South East London and Kent. Our first fundraising in 2005 was to cover the cost of an extra Health Care Assistant in the Unit. We have since grown into a charity providing a range of support for NHS Services not only in The PRUH, but the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, Croydon University Hospital, King’s College Hospital, Guy’s Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital. Support at The PRUH includes funding for additional medical staff, capital projects, equipment and training specifically for the Chartwell Unit.

We have raised money for:

• T he total refurbishment of the Treatment Suite and air-conditioning. •A  “virtual Conferencing” facility for a cancer Multi-Disciplinary Meeting Room to host meetings where important decisions are made about the care and treatment of patients

diagnosed with cancer. The upgrade has greatly benefitted all patients diagnosed with cancer within the community that we serve. •C  omputers and laptops for The PRUH’s Virtual Cancer Clinics and the Chartwell Unit. • Specialist wheelchairs, medical pumps and nursing equipment for the community nursing teams. • T he continuation of brain research on Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma research led by Consultant Haematologist, Dr Shireen Kassam. • In 2016, we were also instrumental in succeeding to overturn the management decision to close the inpatient Unit, an achievement which we are extremely proud of. •A  new high performance scanner for the Breast Cancer Team. This state of the art ultrasound machine will allow enhanced precision imaging, more effective diagnosis and monitoring, and increased capacity and efficiency providing a definite improvement to patient care.

NEW AND ONGOING PROJECTS We are raising funds for a new Endoscopy Unit

in The PRUH and an additional Acute Nurse Specialist. Our support for Children’s services continues to expand, enabling ongoing enhancements to facilities and equipment in the Paediatric Oncology Units that we support along with the life-line of Patient and Family Support Groups and financial assistance packages. To reflect the expansion of our activities the children’s arm of our charity is now known as The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust. The money that you help us raise will be allocated to the hospitals and appeals we are supporting according to preference.

INTREPID ‘ONE DAY A YEAR’ CYCLISTS ARE DOING THEIR BIT

TO REMEMBER LILY-MAE

O

n Sunday 19th May, Kevin Kingshott and 10 of his friends cycled 22 miles, much of it uphill, across the Southdowns in memory of his niece, Lily-Mae. All tradesmen by day but remembering little Lily-Mae and paying their respects. This yearly event was started by Lily-Mae’s Uncle Kevin and Grandparents as a way to say thank you to The Chartwell Cancer Trust for supporting the Cruttenden family at a time when it was greatly need. Kevin said: “Another year comes around and the intrepid ‘one day a year’ cyclists are doing their bit to remember Lily-Mae Cruttenden. Some of them picking up their bikes where they ‘dumped’ them in the back of the shed from last year.” Kevin set the route which starts from his home in Seaford, heading inland to the top ridge of the Southdowns then back to the coast, taking in some of the views on the way, (not that they had time to look). Grandad, Nanny Jemma and Kevin’s two boys showed their support by going for a full English breakfast and arrived back to Kevin’s home just in time to hand out some welldeserved Beer! Kevin Kingshott, Lily-Mae’s Uncle, and 10 of his friends Congratulations and thank you to you all! cycled 22 miles across the Southdowns in her memory Don’t forget to oil those chains for next year.
