Richard Soan Roofing Services’ recent charity race day raised an impressive £34,710 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Held annually at Brighton Race Course, the event included an auction, champagne reception, lunch and an afternoon’s racing, with all proceeds going to the charity.
MD, Richard Soan, said, “We are delighted that through the generosity of friends, family and fellow members of the roofing and construction industry, we have managed to raise nearly £35,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.”
A spokesman for the Teenage Cancer Trust said, “We want to say an enormous thank you to Richard and to everyone who attended the Race Day and supported Teenage Cancer Trust so generously.
“Every year in Brighton an estimated 35 young people are diagnosed with cancer. The fantastic total Richard has raised will help us to make sure no young person faces cancer alone. Teenage Cancer Trust has recently appointed a Clinical Nurse Specialist at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital to provide a locally based service of specialised nursing and emotional support. Our nurse will help more young people in and around Brighton to have the choice of receiving support and care closer to home at the point of diagnosis, during and after treatment.
“We rely entirely on supporters like Richard to be able to do this so every pound raised will make a huge difference to young people with cancer.”
