Local businessman and loyal supporter, Richard Soan, of Richard Soan Roofing Services, held his popular, annual Race Day at Brighton Racecourse recently. It was a huge success and raised an incredible £33,000. Of that amazing total, £22,000 will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust, with the rest being donated to Whoopsadaisy.

Sian and Amanda both attended the event, along with 500 guests. The sun shone and the support from the guests was fantastic. As always, Richard organised the whole day, which featured a charity auction with high end auction prizes, including a box at our Royal Albert Hall residence next year, a day at the races and luxury hotel weekend stays. 

Holly King, a former patient who was treated on our Bristol unit, attended the race day with her family to support Richard's fundraising. She even bet on a few lucky winners while she was there!  

We are extremely grateful to Richard who has raised a staggering £90,000 for us over the years.
